The Portuguese national football team won 2-1 against the Czech Republic in its first match at Euro 2024.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - Sports service: In the last match of the first week of the group stage of the Euro 2024 tournament, the Portuguese national team faced the Czech Republic last night (Tuesday, June 18).

Portugal started the game with more and better possession than the opponent, and from the very beginning, everything on the pitch revolved around Portugal's superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo. In the first minutes of the game, a soft cross from Liao's side reached the penalty area and Ronaldo's header went over the goal.

In the 24th minute, Bruno Fernandez's dangerous shot went over the top of the goal.

About 10 minutes later, it was Ronaldo's turn to threaten the Czech goal. This time, his shot was blocked by the reaction of the opponent's goalkeeper.

In the 45th minute, it was Ronaldo who tried to score again, but Stank, who had a wonderful half, blocked his shot beautifully.

In the second half, the two teams presented a back-and-forth game without any opportunities until the first opportunity of the Czech Republic was obtained in the 64th minute. On a pass to Portugal's penalty area, the ball rebounded and reached Kofal on the right side of the area. The player decided to plant the ball in the back of the box for Prowad. Then the 27-year-old Czech star made the game 1-0 with a beautiful and unstoppable shot into the corner of Portugal's goal.

This Czech superiority did not last long. Five minutes later, after Vitinia's cross, Mendez's header hit Hranac and went into the own net.

Then, while the game was expected to end 1-1, the final minutes were full of events. First, in the 87th minute, after Ronaldo's beautiful header hit the goalpost, Jota opened the opponent's goal, but the referee was offside and rejected the goal.

In the 90+2 minute, Portugal finally reached its goal. After a pass from the left side and a mistake made by the opponent's defender, the ball reached Francisco Conceição in front of the goal and he easily opened the Czech goal. After a few moments, the final whistle sounded and Portugal managed to get 3 points in a difficult game.
