Doha: Today, there will be two Group 'A' matches. Ecuador will take on Senegal at the Khalifa International Stadium Doha and the Netherlands will take on Qatar at the Al-Bayt Stadium in Qatar.

Bruno Fernandes scored twice to send Portugal flying into the Round of 16, defeating Uruguay 2-0. Fernandes, curled in a cross from the left that barely went over the head of Ronaldo and bounced into the far corner of the net in the 54th minute to give Portugal a 1-0 lead.

Ronaldo wheeled away in celebration, believing he had scored his ninth World Cup goal and second of this year’s tournament.

However, after repeated close-up replays, it was awarded to Fernandes, who added a second goal from the



penalty spot in stoppage time after a handball by Jose Maria Gimenez. Earlier, in Brazil versus Switzerland, after playing a goalless first half at Stadium 974, Manchester United star Casemiro scored a stunning volley to give Brazil, playing without Neymar, a 1-0 win over Switzerland.

With the thrilling win in a low-scoring encounter, the record five-time champions have joined France in the last 16 of the Qatar World Cup.

The Brazilian side has also become the second team to not face a single shot on target in their first two matches in a single edition of the FIFA World Cup. The same feat earlier was achieved by defending champions France in the 1998 edition of the mega event.
