In a high-octane first half, there was no stopping Cristiano Ronaldo, who opened the scoring with a well-executed header only four minutes in to bring his tally up to four goals in two games.

Portugal sat back after the goal, as Morocco looked to threaten at every opportunity and were fluid with their ball movement in a bid to repair the damage.

The second half continued to be both fast and furious as Morocco picked up where they had left off and Ronaldo sent a shot over the bar.

Despite being the better side, Morocco didn't take their chances in front of goal and were quite unfortunate, but goals win matches.


Rui Patricio (GK) - 7.5

Was kept busy due to Morocco's threat. Great save to deny Belhanda's header from the set-piece. 

Raphael Guerreiro - 6

Nice run and pass in the area to Ronaldo who almost doubled the lead. Ruthless defending under pressure. Aggressive but had quite a job to do marking Amrabat.

Jose Fonte - 5.5

Was fortunate not to give away a penalty. Good clearance in the second half.

Pepe - 4

For an experienced defender, Morocco were allowed too much space. Blocked a game-changing shot in injury time. 

Cedric - 6

Defended well under pressure when Morocco were threatening. Tidied up well towards the end of the half. Won the ball at vital moments.

Joao Mario - 5

Did well in some moments. Won free-kick in perfect area.
