Something of a mini-counter-attack from Ghana, who get to about halfway before it breaks down. The ball is white, Iñaki, just in case you forget. Portugal with a bit of tiki-taka on the edge of the box before slipping in João down the left. Lovely stuff. Ronaldo gets on the header from the subsequent corner but heads it wide. HUGE CHANCE FOR CRISTIANOThe ball is played through the lines and Ronaldo makes a run through a gap in the defence. Zigi is very quick to come off his line and spreads himself out well to stop the striker getting a strong touch on the ball.
Nothing has worked. Ghana will be happy with how well they've defended against such attacking talent, but they'll want to use Iñaki Williams' pace and try to find spaces behind the Portugal defence, which will be there behind Dias and Pereira. Let's see how the second half pans out. 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.
Opta showing Ghana's strugglesYep, the eye-test confirms what we suspected: Ghana have done a whole lot of nothing so far. That's all for now! HT: Portugal 0-0 GhanaGroup H is shaping up to be a classic. No goals in Uruguay vs South Korea and it's looking very similar in this fixture. Ronaldo came closest with a one-on-one but a good save from Zigi kept it out. Apart from that, we've not seen many clear chances. On the ball, Portugal have tried everything: they've copied Spain and tired to tiki-taka their way through; they've copied Sean Dyche and long-balled their way in; they've copied David Moyes and launched cross after cross into the box.
Ronaldo won't mind. GOOOOOOAAAALLLLLL RONALDOOOO!!! Whacks the penalty away perfectly. Deadlock broken! Well, it looks like it'll be taken... Ronaldo steps up... PENALTY TO PORTUGALSalisu brings down Ronaldo in the box after the striker is put through on goal. It looked incredibly light. Ghana with more of the ball, and are making Portugal run (not Ronaldo).

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. William Carvalho is being prepared to come on. Portugal immediately push Ghana back into a low-block as they sweep the ball from left to right, looking for a way in. Ghana giving nothing away; if they maintain the levels of concentration we saw in the first half, it will be a huge achievement. Peep! Ghana kick us off from left to right. No changes so far.
As close as anyone's got for the last 15 minutes. João Félix, as well as having lovely hair, seems to possess a buzz of electricity every time he touches the ball. He's been the one player who has looked like potentially making something happen. That was close. Kudus latched onto a loose ball in the middle of the pitch and tried to feed Iñaki through the lines but his pass was too short.
A lucky one for Portugal, as he'd have been away. Ghana push Portugal all the way back to the goalkeeper, to a huge cheer from the crowd. A few disgruntled faces among those in red shirts so far. Neves finds Cancelo with a lovely switch of play, but the ball can't get any further than the start of Ghana's defence. So far, they're holding the Portuguese out well. 'Unnecessary skill from Ronaldo' on the bingo, anyone? Iñaki gets a touch! Baba sends a ball down the left channel but the striker doesn't have his extendo-legs on and can't quite get a full foot on the ball. That's more like it.
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. 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.
The free-kick is cleared. No 'one' for Ronaldo just yet. THE BALL IS IN THE NET. RULED OUT.
