Portugal 0-0 Cape Verde Islands

You could be mistaken in thinking there is a typing mistake in the scoreline but there isn’t and despite fielding a near full strength team Portugal couldn’t manage a goal against a team ranked 117 in the world.

This awful result against one of Africa’s smallest teams will be a major worry for Portugal coach Carlos Queiroz who in putting out a team full of stars must have expected a confidence boosting score. Given the strength of World Cup group G Portugal will need to show a massive improvement in their finishing or they will miss out to the Ivory Coast in a group where goal difference could be crucial.
