Portugal 2

[Fernandes 54, 90+3]

Uruguay 0

Portugal advanced to the knockout stage of the World Cup in Qatar with a win over Uruguay.

Bruno Fernandes broke the deadlock in the 54th minute when his cross floated beyond Sergio Rochet, the Uruguay goalkeeper.

Initially, it appeared as though the ball had glanced off Cristiano Ronaldo’s head, but replays showed the goal belonged to Fernandes.

Portugal secured the victory in stoppage time when Fernandes converted a penalty after a video assistant referee adjudged Uruguay defender Jose Gimenez handled the ball.

Uruguay must now beat Ghana in their final Group H game to stand a chance of qualifying.

Brazil 1

[Casemiro 83]

Switzerland 0

Five-time champions Brazil reached the knockout stage with a narrow win over Switzerland.

Casemiro, the Manchester United midfielder, struck the winner with seven minutes remaining with a superb effort into the far corner.

A point against Cameroon in their final game will guarantee Brazil the top spot in Group G.

Cameroon 3

[Castelletto 29, Aboubakar 63, Choupo-Moting 66]

Serbia 3

[Pavlovic 45+1, Milinkovic 45+3, Mitrovic 53]

Cameroon kept their hopes alive of advancing from Group G after fighting back from two goals down to earn a point in a six-goal thriller against Serbia.

Jean-Charles Castelletto gave Cameroon the lead before Strahinja Pavlovic and Sergeij Milinkovic-Savic netted for Serbia before half-time.

Aleksandar Mitrovic, the Fulham striker, made it three for Serbia; however, Cameroon battled back through Vincent Aboubakar and Eric Choupo-Moting.

South Korea 2

[Cho 58, 61]

Ghana 3

[Salisu 24, Kudus 34, 68]

Ghana claimed a thrilling victory over South Korea in Group G.

The African nation scored two first-half goals through Mohammed Salisu and Mohammed Kudus to give them a two-nil lead at the break.

South Korea fought back in the second period with two headers from Cho Gue-sung.

However, Ghana broke South Korea’s hearts when Kudus added his second of the game.
