Turkey, which is in Group F of the 2024 European Championship hosted by Germany, faced Portugal in its second match. Turkey, who lost 3-0 to its opponent, fell to second place in the group. Portugal, on the other hand, guaranteed to leave the group.

Bernardo Silva, Samet Akaydin's own goal and Bruno Fernandes scored the winning goals for Portugal. 

WE WERE HELPLESS AGAINST PORTUGAL

In a balanced game in the first half, Portugal took the lead through Bernardo Silva, taking advantage of a man-marking error in the defence. After Samet Akaydin's big mistake, the difference increased to two and Bruno Fernandes' empty net goal decided the result of the match.

The team, which could not take advantage of two clear opportunities with Kerem Aktürkoğlu in the first half, could not find a solution to Portugal's closed defence and slowing down the tempo of the game in the second half and had difficulty in finding positions. The Turkish team, which tried the rival goal with shots from a distance, could not find the goal they were looking for and left the match with a different defeat.
