Ghana changesOFF: Abdul and SalisuON: Kyereh and Semenyo Iñaki and Pereira booked for a tangle of legs and an angry reaction from both players. They're shouting very loudly at each other, and I don't think they're saying nice things. We have goals in Group H! Everybody dance! GOOOOAAAAAALLLLLL GHANA!!!! IT IS NOT OVER JUST YET A long ball down the left is swung in towards substitute Bukari, who jumps highest to send the ball past Costa. Portugal make three subsOFF: Bernardo, João, RonaldoON: J Mrio, J Palhinha, Gonçalo Ramos A host of changes being prepared for Portugal. It feels like I've just banged my head against a wall. Two goals in two minutes have killed this Ghana side as well as my ability to type. A huge chance for Ronaldo! Ghana need to be careful or this could get ugly. Huge spaces have appeared behind their defence and Ronaldo finds himself through on goal, but his chip is well saved by Zigi.
Portugal resorting to putting more and more crosses into the box - not a bad idea given their aerial threat - but definitely a sign of the frustration. First corner for Ghana in the 37th minute... Kudus to take. Cleared by Neves and the rebound is headed out by Bruno. Another corner for the Black Stars. They know these set pieces are their main chance of scoring. Cristiano heads away this time.
Zigi takes a long time with a goal kick and we've only got a few seconds left of the half... 2 added on. Is that a tournament low? Yellow for Kudus after a kick on Bernardo. Naughty boy. João Félix puts his hands over his face as Cancelo's low cross zooms past everyone after some ping-pong passing on the edge of the box. Ghanaian fans dancing in the stands as the clock ticks on. Bruno plays Ronaldo through down the left but the ex-Manchester United man takes too long beforeshooting and the chance fizzes out. Raphael gets on the end of the ball as it's lofted back into the box but it gets caught under Ronaldo's feet before being cleared again.
Right-back Seidu sends a ball in from the right but it flies over everyone's head and lands with Baba, the left-back, on the other side of the pitch. A lovely pass, but not what he wanted to do. Cheers from the crows as Andre Ayew makes a run down the left channel, but he's offside. Ghana have a plan, they just aren't very good at doing it.
Ronaldo slips the ball in behind Zigi from the left of the box but it is ruled out for a foul in the build-up. A quick counter from Portugal after Ghana try an attack and an angry Bruno is brought down (not like him to complain). Long free kick to be swung in by Bernardo. Half chance from the lovely João, who slices a shot miles over the bar after Bernardo Silva set him up with a lovely cut-back from the left channel onto the edge of the box. A fantastically acrobatic header away from Amartey there after a Raphael cross from the left. As close as anyone's got for the last 15 minutes.

A lovely 270º turn from Otávio, who chips a cross towards Ronaldo, but it's cleared. Ghana with 0 shots as it stands; Portugal with 5 (only Cristiano's one-on-one on target). Ronaldo fouled and the free-kick will be whipped in by Bruno. Cristiano is inside the box holding up his finger to Bruno, like a number one. Maybe he wants to score one goal. The free-kick is cleared. No 'one' for Ronaldo just yet. THE BALL IS IN THE NET. RULED OUT.

Portugal vs Ghana summary: Cristiano Ronaldo record, score, goals, highlights 3-2 | Qatar World Cup 2022Portugal vs Ghana: as it happenedAnd that's all! Breathe! FT: Portugal 3-2 GhanaAre you OK? Am I OK? Can someone check on Iñaki? I supposed we asked for goals, right? What a bonkers second half: Portugal went ahead, Ghana equalised, Portugal went ahead and ahead-er, and then Ghana made our eyes explode with the craziest of finishes! All in all, Portugal will be happy with the attacking show they presented to us in the second half, and the array of talent on the bench means that a stagnant game like we saw in the first 45 minutes can be changed at the drop of a hat.
OH MY ANOTHER PORTUGAL GOALRafa Leao! Another loss of possession for Ghana as Joao recovers the ball and gives it to Bruno, who immediately springs a counter. He runs and runs and runs down the middle before sliding it to Rafa Leao. The AC Milan winger cooly places the ball into the far corner and it might be game over for Ghana. Out of nowhere!! João breaks away down the right after a long pass from Bruno. It was Partey who lost the ball in the middle of the pitch.
