  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
  • 90+4
    Van der Sar (Netherlands) makes a save.
    Figo plays the ball square to Deco and the midfield player has only Van der Sar to beat. But fatigue overtakes him and his left-foot shot is tame.
  • 90+4
    Deco (Portugal) has an effort on goal.
  • 90+2

    Van Hooijdonk (in) - Robben (out) (Netherlands)
    The Netherlands now have three out-and-out attackers on the pitch as they search for an equaliser in the last nine minutes. Van Hooijdonk was decisive when he came on against Germany in the Netherlands's first game - can he repeat the trick again?

    Jorge Andrade (Portugal) scores an own goal.
    An own goal from Portugal halves the deficit. Van Bronckhorst creates the chance, crossing into the near post where Andrade flicks out a boot before Van Nistelrooij. The ball loops slowly over Ricardo and into the back of the net. Suddenly the decibel level has dropped in the stadium and the Dutch have a new sense of belief.

    Pauleta (Portugal) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Reiziger (Netherlands).
  • 62
    Davids (Netherlands) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Deco (Portugal).

    An incredible goal by the midfield player. Manciche receives a short corner from Ronaldo, runs unchallenged to the corner of the penalty area and launches a curling effort that flies in off Van der Sar's far post. The goalkeeper looks stunned, while the Portugal bench erupts in joy. It's the second goal Portugal have scored from a corner, and puts them 30 minutes away from their first ever appearance in a major final.

    Another magnificent stop from Van der Sar, who keeps his side in the game. A straight long ball evades the defence and breaks to Pauleta who has a one-on-one with the goalkeeper from the edge of the area. He opts for power but his blasted effort is stopped by the goalkeeper's legs.

    26
    Ronaldo (Portugal) scores!
    A simple goal by winger Ronaldo, who scores from a free header seven metres from goal. It is a carbon copy of the goal he scored as a substitute against Greece in the opening game, taking advantage of non-existent marking to take advantage of the corner he earnt himself.
