Cláudia Neto missed an early penalty as Portugal were forced to settle for a goalless draw against Romania in the UEFA Women's EURO 2017 play-off first leg.
The home side had the better of things throughout in Lisbon but could not translate their superiority into goals. They came closest after just nine minutes when Ana Leite was brought down in the area. Cláudia Neto, known as 'CN7', stepped up and sent Andrea Părăluţă the wrong way but her effort struck the upright and rolled across the goal line into the keeper's arms.
It signalled a sign of things to come on a frustrating evening for the majority of the crowd of 3,415, a record for a women's match in Portugal. Romania defended well, keeping the hosts at bay and ensuring that the sides' third meeting ended the same way as their first two: all-square. There will definitely be a winner come Tuesday, though, when Cluj-Napoca hosts the second leg.
