Half-Time Report: Portugal frustrated by Albania

Portugal share a goalless first half with Albania in their Euro 2016 qualifier in Elbasan.

Portugal have been unable to make the breakthrough following a goalless first half in their Euro 2016 qualifier with Albania this evening.

Cristiano Ronaldo had the first chance of the match for the visitors when he fired a low drive towards the bottom corner that was pushed behind by Etrit Berisha.

From the resulting corner, Nani arrived to meet Danilo Pereira's flick, but he could only turn his strike against the post.

Ronaldo was proving to be Portugal's biggest threat and he tested Berisha once again with a strike that the keeper palmed away for a corner.

Bernardo Silva almost opened the scoring for the visitors minutes before the break, but his effort flashed inches wide of the far post, as the teams headed into the dressing rooms on level terms.
