Portugal are out of the FIFA World Cup despite a 2-1 victory against Ghana in Brasilia.

Paulo Bento's charges finish third in Group G, behind the United States – beaten 1-0 by section winners Germany on Thursday – on goal difference. The Selecção prevailed thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo's 50th international effort, a strike that came after Asamoah Gyan had drawn Ghana level following John Boye's first-half own goal.
