Portugal notch magnificient seven

Portugal turned on the style to thrash Korea DPR 7-0 at the Green Point Stadium and take a huge step towards a place in the Round of 16.

Only a Raul Meireles goal divided the teams after a closely contested first half but it was a different story after the restart when Portugal devastated the North Korean defence with three goals inside eight minutes before the hour from Simao, Hugo Almeida and Tiago. With the clock ticking down, Liedson, Cristiano Ronaldo and Tiago compounded their opponents' woes to bring Portugal their biggest FIFA World Cup™ victory and the widest winning margin so far in South Africa.

The story is too old to be commented.

What a match, what a team. This is definitly "the group of dead". Poor Côte d'Ivoire, the best African team, they now don`t have a chance going trough to the 1/8final...
