Portugal defeated a fighting Morocco 1-0 after an early Cristiano Ronaldo goal. The result sees Morocco knocked out of the World Cup.

Portugal started brightly and after Ronaldo headed home from a corner in the fourth minute. It was his 85th international goal, meaning he has scored more goals than any European player in history for a national team.

Things looked ominous for Morocco after conceding early, but they responded well and were the better side for the majority of the match. They simply lacked the quality in the final third to score.

Portugal's performance was below par and moving forward they will need to improve in order to progress, but these three points give them a great platform to move forward.
