Half-Time Report: Portugal hold 1-0 lead over Ghana at the break

Portugal hold a 1-0 lead over Ghana in their final Group G game at the Estadio Nacional, as John Boye puts the ball into his own net after 30 minutes.

Portugal are currently holding a 1-0 lead over Ghana at the Estadio Nacional thanks to a John Boye own goal, as they look to pull off an unlikely push for qualification from Group G.

Cristiano Ronaldo was the first to create anything noteworthy as he unleashed an effort from distance, which was kept out at the top right corner of the Ghanaian goal.

The Real Madrid star could have put his side 1-0 ahead after 20 minutes, but he saw his headed effort from a Joao Pereira cross saved by Fatau Dauda.

Kwadwo Asamoah showed signs of promise down the flanks and he delivered something special for Asamoah Gyan, who saw his header stopped from rippling the back of the net as Beto made a good save.

However, the tables were turned on Ghana in the 30th minute when Boye put the ball into his own net, leaving Portugal to take a 1-0 lead into half time.
