Portugal secured a dominant 3-0 victory over Turkey in a thrilling match at the BVB Stadion Dortmund, securing their spot in the Euro 2024 round of 16 as the winners of Group F. The game saw Roberto Martinez's team take the lead in the 21st minute, with Bernardo Silva scoring a brilliant goal from close range after a precise pass from Rafael Leao.

The second goal for Portugal came in a bizarre fashion, as Samet Akaydin's back-pass to goalkeeper Altay Bayindir went awry, ending up in an own goal. Despite desperate attempts from Zeki Celic and Bayindir to prevent the ball from crossing the line, Portugal extended their lead.

In the 55th minute, Portugal sealed the victory with a third goal, as Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes combined beautifully to find the back of the net. Ronaldo, known for his scoring prowess, unselfishly passed the ball to Fernandes, who made no mistake in scoring.

With this win, Portugal became the third team, following Germany and Spain, to secure a spot in the round of 16. Cristiano Ronaldo's assist in this game marked his seventh in the Euros, setting a new record since 1968.
