The result of FANTASTIC Portugal’s World Cup match!

Portugal advanced to the World Cup with a 3-1 victory over Turkey,

whose attacker Burak Yilmaz

missed a penalty five minutes from time that would have tied the game in their playoff semi-final.

Portugal dominated the game from the start,

going 2-0 up in the first half when Otavio scored one goal and set up another for Diogo Jota in front of a sold-out Dragao Stadium in Porto.

However, Fernando Santos’ side was beaten by a Yilmaz goal in the 65th minute,

which had Portuguese fans on the edge of their seats as Turkey threatened.


After defender Jose Fonte fouled Enes Unal inside the area in the 85th minute, Yilmaz was awarded a penalty,

which he fired high over the bar after it hit the woodwork.

With a counter-attack goal in injury time,

Portugal substitute Matheus Nunes relieved the burden on the hosts.

They will host North Macedonia on Tuesday after missing out on automatic qualification in November.

The winner will qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Watch the full goals of Portugal and Turkey now!!

Portugal have set up a 2022 World Cup play-off final date with North Macedonia on March 29 as Fernando Santos’ side edged out a 3-1 semi-final win over Turkey.

The hosts dominated the first 45 minutes as Otavio and Diogo Jota deservedly gave them a 2-0 lead at the break with 2016 European champions seemingly having one foot in the final.


their struggles to find a third goal after the restart left the door open for Turkey, and Cengiz Under slipped in Burak Yilmaz to fire the visitors back into the contest.

But despite that swing in momentum for Turkey,

Yilmaz’s 86th minute missed spot kick ultimately ended their chances as substitute Rafael Leao wrapped it up in added time.
