Portugal got off to a good start by beating the Czech Republic.
Portugal won 2-1 in the first leg of Group F of the UEFA Euro 2024 group stage against the Czech Republic held at the Leipzig Stadium in Leipzig, Germany on June 19, 2024.

It was not an easy match.
Portugal won the first game with great difficulty thanks to Francisco Conceição (FC Porto) scoring in extra time in the second half.

On this day, Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nasr) and center back Pepe (Porto) set a record.
Ronaldo, who started as a starter, set new records for the tournament as ‘oldest captain ever’ and ‘most appearances ever (6 times)’.

Pepe, who stepped on the pitch at the age of 41 years and 113 days, became the ‘oldest player in Euro history’.
Portugal was significantly ahead in key metrics such as ball possession and shots.

However, the Czech Republic was unable to open the goal throughout the first half.
Rather, the first goal belonged to the Czech Republic.

In the 17th minute of the second half, Lukasz Provod (Prague)’s mid-range shot hit the left corner of the goal.
Portugal followed just 7 minutes later.

The Czech goalkeeper hit the ball that Nuno Mendes (Paris Saint-Germain) dropped with his head from the left area of ​​the penalty box.
At this time, the ball hit the shin of the Czech defender in front of the goal, resulting in an own goal.

Portugal was in the mood when Diogo Jota (Liverpool) hit the net with a header in the 41st minute of the second half, but the score was canceled due to offside.
Portugal replaced Vitinha (PSG) with Conceição in the 45th minute of the second half, and it was a hit.

In the extra time of the second half, Pedro Neto (Wolverhampton) broke down the left flank and sent a cross that hit a defender, and Conceição, who was in front of the goal, easily finished it with his left foot.
Conceição, who became the star of the match, took off his uniform top and enjoyed his debut goal after three A matches.
