Portugal hang on for 3-2 win despite spirited Black Stars display

A two-minute collapse in the second half by Ghana’s Black Stars helped Portugal pick up a 3-2 win in their Group H clash.

However, goals from Joao Felix and Rafael Leao put Portugal back in control.

Osman Bukari headed home a second for the Black Stars but the Portuguese held on, despite nine added minutes to pick up all three points.

The defeat would have been hard for Otto Addo’s men who stifled Portugal for much of the first half and the beginning of the second.

Ghana even looked more dangerous than they had in the first half, as Kudus flashed a shot just wide after a surging run.

It was Portugal, however, who broke the deadlock from a controversial penalty.

Ronaldo stepped up and fired home clinically to put Portugal ahead.
