Portugal left it late, very late as a substitute Conceição were alert to a loose ball and crossed the ball home in extra time to secure three points in a match they could not convince despite their clear dominance.

The first half had few incidents Czech Republic sat back and were more than capable of dealing with the few attacking threats Portugal presented.

The breakthrough came in the second half when the white team managed to create a shot on goal Provod’s bet was too accurate for Costa as it looked like another major Euro 2024 shock could happen in 2024.

Portugal did recover and, with some luck along the way, eventually leveled Hranac sent the ball into his own net after Stanek made a good save.

Jota did have the ball in the net when the clock ticked, but Ronaldo (who was silent most of the evening) drifted into an offside position and just when it looked like the spoils would be shared, he substituted Conceição home to break the hearts of the Czech Republic and get Portugal’s campaign off to a winning start.
