Bruno booked for a revenge push. Free kick for Portugal on the left wing. Bruno brought down. They'll look to take this with a lot of care and slow precision. It goes straight to a Ghana player. Ghana changesOFF: Abdul and SalisuON: Kyereh and Semenyo Iñaki and Pereira booked for a tangle of legs and an angry reaction from both players. They're shouting very loudly at each other, and I don't think they're saying nice things.
A lovely pass, but not what he wanted to do. Cheers from the crows as Andre Ayew makes a run down the left channel, but he's offside. Ghana have a plan, they just aren't very good at doing it. William Carvalho is being prepared to come on. Portugal immediately push Ghana back into a low-block as they sweep the ball from left to right, looking for a way in. Ghana giving nothing away; if they maintain the levels of concentration we saw in the first half, it will be a huge achievement.
I NEARLY HAD A HEART ATTACKIñaki hid behind the goalkeeper as he put the ball on the floor; the striker ran round him, taking the ball away, but he slipped and the defence recovered! Close from Bukari who nearly becomes a hero with a long-range shot from wide. The ball goes just over. Ghana are trying, but they can't find the line-breaking pass to get it through to their forward players. Three to go.
RULED OUT. Ronaldo slips the ball in behind Zigi from the left of the box but it is ruled out for a foul in the build-up. A quick counter from Portugal after Ghana try an attack and an angry Bruno is brought down (not like him to complain). Long free kick to be swung in by Bernardo. Half chance from the lovely João, who slices a shot miles over the bar after Bernardo Silva set him up with a lovely cut-back from the left channel onto the edge of the box. A fantastically acrobatic header away from Amartey there after a Raphael cross from the left. As close as anyone's got for the last 15 minutes. João Félix, as well as having lovely hair, seems to possess a buzz of electricity every time he touches the ball.
Ghanaian fans dancing in the stands as the clock ticks on. Bruno plays Ronaldo through down the left but the ex-Manchester United man takes too long beforeshooting and the chance fizzes out. Raphael gets on the end of the ball as it's lofted back into the box but it gets caught under Ronaldo's feet before being cleared again. Portugal resorting to putting more and more crosses into the box - not a bad idea given their aerial threat - but definitely a sign of the frustration. First corner for Ghana in the 37th minute... Kudus to take. Cleared by Neves and the rebound is headed out by Bruno. Another corner for the Black Stars.
If they draw against them that could also be enough, but it depends on whether South Korea beat Portugal or not. Uruguay: Uruguay entered Matchday 3 at the bottom of Group G. They've taken one point from their opening two games, drawing with South Korea before losing to Portugal. They're level on points with Korea, two behind Ghana and five behind Portugal. In order to progress to the Round of 16, Uruguay need to beat Ghana and hope that South Korea don't beat Portugal.
He decides to shoot, from quite a distance, but slides it wide. Definitely the best chance the Black Stars have had all game. Salisu jumps, misses the ball, and it lands at Seidu's feet. He hits a shot that goes wide. Ok, ok, maybe we have a bit more of a game. A couple of attacks now for Ghana down Portugal's right, and Kudus hits a cross that goes out for a corner. Right-back Seidu sends a ball in from the right but it flies over everyone's head and lands with Baba, the left-back, on the other side of the pitch.
Nothing has worked. Ghana will be happy with how well they've defended against such attacking talent, but they'll want to use Iñaki Williams' pace and try to find spaces behind the Portugal defence, which will be there behind Dias and Pereira. Let's see how the second half pans out. Zigi takes a long time with a goal kick and we've only got a few seconds left of the half... 2 added on. Is that a tournament low? Yellow for Kudus after a kick on Bernardo. Naughty boy. João Félix puts his hands over his face as Cancelo's low cross zooms past everyone after some ping-pong passing on the edge of the box.
They know these set pieces are their main chance of scoring. Cristiano heads away this time. A lovely 270º turn from Otávio, who chips a cross towards Ronaldo, but it's cleared. Ghana with 0 shots as it stands; Portugal with 5 (only Cristiano's one-on-one on target). Ronaldo fouled and the free-kick will be whipped in by Bruno. Cristiano is inside the box holding up his finger to Bruno, like a number one. Maybe he wants to score one goal. The free-kick is cleared. No 'one' for Ronaldo just yet. THE BALL IS IN THE NET.
That's all for now! HT: Portugal 0-0 GhanaGroup H is shaping up to be a classic. No goals in Uruguay vs South Korea and it's looking very similar in this fixture. Ronaldo came closest with a one-on-one but a good save from Zigi kept it out. Apart from that, we've not seen many clear chances. On the ball, Portugal have tried everything: they've copied Spain and tired to tiki-taka their way through; they've copied Sean Dyche and long-balled their way in; they've copied David Moyes and launched cross after cross into the box.
We have goals in Group H! Everybody dance! GOOOOAAAAAALLLLLL GHANA!!!! IT IS NOT OVER JUST YET A long ball down the left is swung in towards substitute Bukari, who jumps highest to send the ball past Costa. Portugal make three subsOFF: Bernardo, João, RonaldoON: J Mrio, J Palhinha, Gonçalo Ramos A host of changes being prepared for Portugal. It feels like I've just banged my head against a wall. Two goals in two minutes have killed this Ghana side as well as my ability to type. A huge chance for Ronaldo! Ghana need to be careful or this could get ugly. Huge spaces have appeared behind their defence and Ronaldo finds himself through on goal, but his chip is well saved by Zigi. OH MY ANOTHER PORTUGAL GOALRafa Leao! Another loss of possession for Ghana as Joao recovers the ball and gives it to Bruno, who immediately springs a counter.

William Carvalho gave Portugal a good base from which they could launch their attacks, and Rafa Leão is a very dribbly man. Ghana will be delighted with the fightback after the lacklustre first half and ultimately they will be disappointed with the result. People were low on their expectations before the tournament but today they've shown that they have a lot of heart and will fight until the end.

It looked like he moved his head towards João Félix, causing him to fall over. The handbags are out here, and João is on the floor, holding his face. CLOSE FROM GHANA! Partey originally loses the ball in the middle, and Ronaldo runs onto a through-pass but dilly-dallies for too long and Ghana recover it. They quickly launch a counter-attack and Kudus drives with the ball as the Portuguese defence scrambles back.
