Against Belgium. Portugal – Competition Report – June 27, 2021
With play, fights, injuries and a better goal, Belgium beat Portugal to advance to the Euro 2020 quarterfinals, which will feature a new champion. The Red Devils won 1-0 with a goal from Thorgan Hazard, leaving a sketch that he will remember for the rest of his life.
The attack began with an advantage for the Portuguese, who pressed the attack and became more solid. Diego Jotta and Cristiano Ronaldo had the first risk, but the aim was not the best on Jotta’s shot, while Cordois got the chance from ‘Commando’ after saving a free kick.
As the game went into moments of light for the Lusitanians, a goal came from Thorgen danger that left the entire La Cartouza stadium in Seville without speaking. The youngest of the malicious brothers, Rui Patricio, was shot from outside the area.
In addition, bad news came to Belgium, who may be injured after he knocked down Kevin de Bruyne by Joao Palhinha.
Fernando Santos was replaced. This led to Joao Felix and Bruno Fernandez changing the face of the Portuguese team. Jota had a volleyball in that area and it didn’t hurt in a good way.
Then the game got dirty. Portugal made many mistakes and there was even an attempt to fight. Berke made a strong entry that deserved a red card, with Thorgan at risk. Condemned only in the middle of center-back push.
Portugal, distrustful, rushed forward. Cordois saved a Ruben Dias title, while Rafael Guerrero put the ball in the post and the Portuguese were close to equalizing. Cristiano Ronaldo was outspoken in his absence because he was well-canceled by the Belgian defense.
Only Roberto Martinez’s men had bad news at the end of the game, meaning they missed the Eden risk with injury, again. On the 10th he touched the thigh and came out with a face of pain.
The end result of the game is huge, emotions, mistakes and a lot of trauma. Finally, Belgium eliminated the current European champion and left Portugal, led by Cristiano Ronaldo, who could not reconsider the title. Italy will be the next rival of the Red Devils.
