Ball is clipped forward towards Ronaldo, but he’s well offside. Huge night for him, won’t want to miss out on what will surely be his last World Cup. Can he stand up for his country when they need him once again tonight.
Brilliant start from Portugal, Dalot flying down the right wing and firing a ball into the box. Cristiano Ronaldo is lurking at the back post, Celic does really well to get there first and head away under pressure. Turkey struggling to get out of their half in the early stages, dropping deep but they do look relatively solid.
First chance of the night! It’s made in Manchester. Fernandes slides it through to Dalot, his cut back is absolutely perfect for Ronaldo. He’s completely free in the box, but blazes it over the bar. Poor effort.
Fernandes pounces on a loose pass, looks to find Ronaldo but it’s well cut out. Portugal win it back quickly though and Guerreiro clips a cross into the box. Cakir off his line quickly to claim. Turkey enjoying their best spell of possession now – maybe that goal will liven them up.
Gareth Bale has scored a stunning free kick goal for Wales against Austria in the World Cup play off semi final and you can watch the goal here.
Bale has produced a moment of individual excellence to give Wales the lead in a crucial game against Austria in a race for the 2022 World Cup.
Bale has been out of action for Real Madrid lately but has stepped up to once again produce spectacularly for his country.
They look to play a clever ball through towards Yilmaz, Danilo is there and reads it well. They more than deserve that, it’s looked inevitable for much of the match. Ball is cut back to Bernardo Silva on the edge of the box, his shot is tipped onto the post. Rebounds rolls out to Otavio and he can put Portugal in front.
