Belgium edges Portugal, reaches quarterfinals at Euro 2020

Thorgan Hazar scored the winning goal in the 42nd minute.

Belgium did not score Cristiano Ronaldo and on Sunday defeated the reigning champion of Portugal with a score of 1: 0 and advanced to the quarterfinals of the European Championship.

Thorgan Hazard scored the winning goal in the 42nd minute, making a confident shot from outside the penalty area, as a result of which the goalkeeper of the Portuguese national team Rui Patricio made a mistake and was late with the ball.

Belgium will face Italy in the quarterfinals on Friday in Munich.

Ronaldo lacked one goal to become the world’s top male scorer. He shares 109 goals with former Iranian striker Ali Daei.

Belgium spent most of the second half without Kevin De Bruyne, who had to be replaced after being attacked from behind.

Portugal had several good chances to level the score at the end of the match, including a header by Ruben Diaz from Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and a shot by Rafael Guerreiro to the post.

While Portugal’s fight for the second European title in a row came to an end, Belgium continued to move according to plan and finally won the main trophy for the first time. The Belgians lost in the 1980 European Championship final and finished third in the World Championship three years ago, becoming the best result in that tournament.

The best Red Devils have won all four matches at Euro 2020 and won all 10 qualifying tournaments. The team is unbeaten in 13 straight games in all competitions since being defeated by England last year in the Nations League.
