United States vs Portugal

Two fairly lucky goals helped Portugal back into the game but Nuno Gomes was brought on too late to make a difference; especially as America tried to drag the game out, deep in the Portugal half, with time-wasting tactics.

Portugal vs Poland

Portugal poured in the goals against Poland but still needed to beat South Korea in their final game, or hope that Poland could beat the United States; if Portugal drew with the hosts.

Portugal vs South Korea

Portugal joined France and Argentina at the airport, after losing to the hosts in Incheon.

Knockout Stage

Portugal failed to qualify for the Second Round.
