  • End of 2nd Half
90+3' 

That's full time. Ronaldo helped break the deadlock, but Portugal will be most glad they haven't suffered any serious injury. As committed as New Zealand were, there were plenty of heavy challenges which led to a fairly mardy atmosphere.

  • Nani

GOAL! Portugal 4-0 New Zeland. Nani scores - Released into the box, Nani performs a couple of stepovers to make some space, and he drills it into the far post.

90' 

Doyle boots Nani from behind, and Nani seems happy to start a ruckus, too. The amount of fouling in this tournament has been ridiculous.

88' 

Patricio gets down quickly to save from Bloxall on the line. Portugal had failed to deal with a header across goal from Chris Wood at the back post.

87' 

Patricio is down for a bit of treatment, but he should be OK to continue for the next few minutes.

84' 

Two quick shots from Andre Silva sees the first blocked by Smith, and the second deflected behind by him. Corner on the right wing.

GOAL! Portugal 3-0 New Zealand. Andre Silva scores - A defensive mistake gives Silva the ball on the halfway line. He jogs goalwards, isn't challenged, and darts past one defender before rifling into the top of the net from a tight angle.

79' 

Nani scoots into the box from the left hand side. He makes a bit of roomm to aim a shot at the far top corner, but it's curled well wide of the post.

75' 

With 15 minutes to go, you get the sense that both teams wouldn't actually mind beating the eff out of one another. It's very, very niggly.

Smith, chasing back, nudges Nani to the ground as he was straining to reach a cross from the left.

69'

Nelson Semedo forces through a cross on the right, and it comes to Nani. He sidefoots a shot at goal, it takes a deflection, and Marinovic's positioning is so good he can beat it away from goal.

64'

Moutinho releases Andre Silva down the middle, totally unmarked. Marinovic stands up to him and sticks out an arm to beat it away.

64' 

Quaresma's cross for Andre Silva is almost brilliant, but just a few inches too high at the back post.

60' 

Semedo whips a cross into Ronaldo, and his sheer strength sees him head an effort at goal that is fiercely struck, but is straight at the 'keeper.

58'

New Zealand go close. Doyle slides a cross across the six yard box to the back post. Smith slides a leg out, it's through Patricio's legs and it bounces off Alves and away.

  • Pepe
    Yellow cardPepePortugalTuiloma hoiks the ball towards Smith. It strikes him, perhaps on the back, but it's cleared back out. Smith then meets the next, but his flick-on to Rojas doesn't meet him. Then, Pepe goes flying into Doyle, a dreadful challenge. It's reckless, high and stupid, and there's no need for it. It may technically have been a yellow, but what a tedious man, send him off.

45' 

Ronaldo is fouled with a nudge to the back after he won a high ball. Free kick just into New Zealand's half.

44' 

Semedo has the chance to shoot from distance, and he hits it well, but it flies open. On a replay, Andre Silva aimed a punch at a New Zealand player following his shirt-ripping, but he's got away with it.

43' 

Andre Silva's shirt has been ripped down one side, and he's wondering what he has to do to get a foul. He'll be able to change in a minute or two.

41' 

Quaresma flicks a cross into the box, but it's out of reach of Andre Silva and the danger has passed, at least momentarily. Moutinho cross from the right, in behind the defence, but his cut-back is put behind for a corner on the right.
