Portugal vs France LIVE: Score and latest goal updates from Euro 2024 quarter-finals

,Getty Images,

The second quarter-final of Euro 2024 is another blockbuster encounter pitting 2018 World Cup winners France against 2016 European champions Portugal.

Didier Deschamps’ side have managed to reach the last-eight without conceding a goal from open play. Two own goals and a penalty from Kylian Mbappe have been enough to see them through to challenging matches against Austria, the Netherlands, Poland and Belgium. Their narrow win over Belgium in the last-16 lacked quality and excitement, although the French side will be buoyed by a number of missed chances and the fact that Mbappe has yet to regain his form since suffering a broken nose.

In comparison, Portugal had to go through a penalty shootout to beat Slovenia in the round of 16. Roberto Martinez’s side struggled to create chances in their first knockout match, with Cristiano Ronaldo in particular missing good opportunities, including a penalty miss in extra time.

This match will be a battle of generations with Mbappe facing off against Ronaldo, yet both teams know that improvements are needed if they are to get the job done tonight.

Portugal seem to have learned from that incident and are now looking to penetrate the box rather than play long balls, but once again Saliba is there and deprives Vitina of the ball.

Cancelo hits a cross soon after, but Leo can’t get on the end of it!

One thing about Ronaldo’s one-on-one performance against Saliba is that even at 39, he can never win this battle, as seen just now when Fernandes headed the ball forward and Saliba saved with ease.

Kounde’s ball was headed away by Cancelo. France came back and Camavinga tried to hook the ball towards Griezmann but he lost control of the ball and Fernandes came in and cleared the ball for a corner.

Griezmann clipped the ball, but Upamecano could not make clear contact, and the chance went wide after being intercepted by Mendes.

There was some great play from both sides, with Camavinga playing a pass through his feet which Mbappe passed to Kolo Muani. Griezmann made a great run to his right but Muani took the shot himself and was almost on the mark before Pepe made a brilliant save and cleared him away.

There hasn’t been a great pace to the game so far, but both sides have had a number of half chances and threatened at times. Overall, neither side has been dominant, but Portugal probably have the edge so far in terms of their willingness to push their numbers.

Leao once again picked out Kounde down the left, and his cross headed behind for Portugal’s fifth.
