The win puts Portugal in third place in the group behind the Netherlands and the United States, while Vietnam remains at the bottom of the group after two games.

In the match, Vietnam had several opportunities to score, but were unable to do so. Portugal, however, were clinical and could have had more goals.


In the seventh minute of the first half, Portugal took the lead after Encarnacao latched onto Lucia Alves’ cross and fired the ball into the bottom corner past the outstretched arms of the goalkeeper.

In the 21st minute, the Portuguese continued to press and Nazareth scored the second goal of the match, taking advantage of a loose ball and firing a low ball into the far corner.

The win gives Portugal good chance to qualify to the next round if they beat USA in their Final Group E match on August 01, 2023.
