New Update

Portugal prevails over a weak Vietnamese team by 2 goals to nil and eliminates them from the group stages of the World Cup. It was a fairly one sided contest with Vietnam not even creating "one" proper goal scoring chance and Portugal deserved to win. The Europeans kept their Round of 16 hopes alive through this victory and would look to carry on playing like this in their last group game.
