The Portugal national team, led by Cristiano Ronaldo, finished the game with a hard-fought victory against Uruguay which failed to cause their opponents serious trouble on the field. Midfielder Bruno Fernandes opened the scoring in the 53rd minute, although it was initially credited to CR7, who looked rather disgruntled when his teammate finally scored the goal.

It is worth noting that at one point during the game, a fan who was wearing a t-shirt which read “Respect for Iranian Women” and carrying the rainbow flag for the LGBTQ movement, which is severely repressed in Qatar, ran onto the field.
