Player of the Match: Bernardo Silva

Bernardo Silva in the recipient of UEFA's Player of the Match award, and there won't be too many arguments with that.

It could have been given to a number of Portugal players but the Manchester City man scored the opening goal, created four chances for his team-mates and completed 48 of his 52 attempted passes.

A worthy winner.

Portugal confirmed as Group F winners

UEFA

And that 3-0 victory confirms Portugal's position as Group F winners having accumulated six points from their two opening games. They will face one of the third-place finishers in the last 16.

Turkey, meanwhile, are still in a strong position to progress to the last 16 but will need a result against Czech Republic.

Staggering longevity

Cristiano Ronaldo has now played at the European Championship alongside someone born in 1969 and someone born in 2004:

  • Born in 1969: Fernando Couto at Euro 2004
  • Born in 2004: Joao Neves at Euro 2024

It ends 3-0 to Portugal

There's the final whistle and a fifth pitch invader attempts to get to Ronaldo but stumbles en route and is apprehended. The level of security has been a joke today.

Job done by Portugal but Turkey know it's crunch time against the Czech Republic next.

A fourth pitch invader gets a punch for his troubles

90+4' Turkey 0-3 Portugal

This time a steward actually does something about the intrusion and lands an uppercut on the culprit. Ouch.

Yet another pitch invader and Ronaldo is not happy. Understandably.

There will be 5 minutes of added time

90' Turkey 0-3 Portugal

Ronaldo has been so unselfish today and has really helped his side enormously.

Five minutes more to play here.

85' Turkey 0-3 Portugal

Antonio Silva on for Pepe and the latter gets a standing ovation from both sets of supporters, what a magnificent footballer he is. He just reads the game with such ease.

Another pitch invader gets close to Ronaldo and neither he nor his manager seem as amused as they were when it was a child earlier in the half.

If only the security stopped anyone getting through as effectively as Pepe.

Another selfie-hunter on the pitch

84' Turkey 0-3 Portugal

Another Ronaldo selfie-hunter runs onto the pitch, but this time it's a) while play was going on so the game has to stop and b) he's about six feet tall, so doesn't quite have the same adorable child factor as the first.

Ronaldo pointedly doesn't pose for the selfie this time, and the pitch invader is led off. Someone throws a cup of liquid at him from the stands. Rough one.

The Portuguese players seem determined to keep a clean sheet and there's a professionalism about their work this half that is to be applauded.

Pepe is there every single time Turkey get the ball into the box. It's hard to believe this man is in his 40s.

Akaydin completes his miserable afternoon by hobbling off with an injury and is replaced by Demiral.

He can't do any worse than the man he's coming on for.

The Portuguese seem perfectly happy to let Turkey have the ball at the moment because the Turks don't look threatening in the slightest.

Portugal have bigger tests to come at this tournament and they look like they could go far.

A remarkable statistic

63' Turkey 0-3 Portugal

Presuming Portugal see out this victory, they will have won more games in 90 minutes at Euro 2024 than they did during the entirety of their victorious Euro 2016 campaign.

Neves with a lovely through ball that finds Ronaldo in acres of space. Astonishingly, an utterly selfless Ronaldo squares the ball to his former Manchester United teammate to tap the ball into an empty net.

Ronaldo timed his run to perfection but Turkey have defended very poorly here.

That is surely that.

They need to make something happen and fast.
