However, Ronaldo's side suffered two major hiccups in the first half as Ruben Dias and Raphael Guerreiro registered their own goals giving Germany a 2-1 lead. No more goals were scored and at halftime, Germany went in with a lead.


In the second half, Germany scored two more goals courtesy of Kai Havertz and Robin Gosens in the 51st and 60th minutes respectively, and as a result, Germany took a 4-1 lead.


Diogo Jota was able to peg one goal back in the 67th minute for Portugal, but still, Germany were the favourites to win the match as they had a 4-2 lead. In the end, no more goals were scored and Germany went away victorious.
