Like France Spain and Brazil, Portugal also rested most of their key players in their third group game after securing the top spot. As a result, the Selecao lost their third game in the group stages to South Korea and suffered their first defeat in Qatar 2022.
This is the second consecutive time that Portugal reach the round of 16. In Russi 2018, the Selecao were eliminated by Uruguay after losing 1-2. Ronaldo and his teammates want to go further this time around but they have to regain the momentum of their first two games and keep their scoring average of two goals per game in the group stages.

In their game against Serbia, Murat Yakin’s men showed great character after being down by 1-2 and hit back twice to earn the second position behind Brazil. The Swiss were very effective offensively scoring three times from their seven shots on goal.
