The result looked comfortable in the end, but the posts and some wayward finishing meant Portugal were frustrated for much of their FIFA World Cup Group F win against Azerbaijan.

Goals from substitute Silvestre Varela (64), Hélder Postiga (85) and Bruno Alves (88) saw Paulo Bento's side receive some recompense for their dominant performance, as they made it two wins from two in the section, but the first hour of the game had provided plenty of frustration for the home side.
