The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - World Cup -

PoR­TU­gaL .............................................. 7 NoRTh KoREa........................................ 0 Por­tu­gal pro­duced a spec­tac­u­lar per­for­mance of flu­id­ity and flair to earn their first win of the World Cup in style against North Korea.

Hav­ing failed to im­press in their open­ing group g stale­mate with the Ivory Coast, Car­los Queiroz’s side were un­der pres­sure to de­liver against North Korea with a show­down against Brazil still to come.

and they did that em­phat­i­cally as raul Meire­les scored in the first half be­fore Si­mao Sabrosa, Hugo almeida and ti­ago hit one apiece within seven sec­ond-half min­utes.

lied­son and Cris­tiano ron­aldo got in on the act be­fore ti­ago grabbed his sec­ond in the dy­ing min­utes.
