Portugal 1 Russia 0

A sloppy goal in the first half and the inability of the Russian team to convert into goals the pressure exerted in the rest of the game were the main points underlying this interesting game of football, the result of which cannot be contested. Congratulations to Paulo Bento for reaching top spot in Group F.

 

In the first game between the two sides in October, Russia beat Portugal 1-0 in Moscow.

In tonight's other games in the group, Azerbaijan drew 1-1 with Luxembourg.
