Portugal vs. Sweden  1 - 0

General Game Stats Chart


Minute   Description
90' +3 The final whistle goes!
90' +2 Olsson again does enough to stop Ronaldo from connecting with a cross into the area at the back post. He even manages to draw a foul from the Portuguese to relieve some of the late pressure on his side.
90' +1 We are into the first of three additional minutes.
89' OVER THE TOP! Ronaldo again gets himself into a great position at the top of the box and he lashes a shot at goal after Moutinho's cushioned touch. It was nowhere near though, and probably went wide of the target too!
88' A. Gerndt enters the game and replaces J. Elmander.
87' Olsson does just enough to stop Nani from getting in around the back and connecting with Josue's clever ball over the top of the defence. Sweden really are hanging on now after looking so assured earlier on in the game.
85' OFF THE BAR!! Ronaldo almost grabs a second as he leaps to get on the end of Almeida's cross, only to be denied by the woodwork. That certainly would have put the game to bed.
84' Sweden will surely just try to see the game out as things stand, and possibly try to catch Portugal on the break. The last thing they will want to do is overcommit and concede another goal.
82' Cristiano Ronaldo has scored a goal for Portugal! Assist by Miguel Veloso.
GOOOOOOOAAAL!! The deadlock is finally broken! Ronaldo's quality finally tells as he darts in front of Nilsson to send a diving header past Isaksson from Veloso's cross. What a time to score, and he is absolutely delighted!
81' CLAIMS FOR A PENALTY! Elmander knocks the ball past Pereira and falls to ground inside the box under a challenge from the right-back. Nothing is given by the referee, though, and so play continues.
