  • It wa't a classic but Germany pick up the win thanks to a superb Mario Gomez header. It took Portugal to go 1-0 down before they made advancing strides themselves and in the end it was too late as the much-fancied Germans make a perfect start to the competition.

  • FULL TIME. Germany 1 Portugal 0.

  • Alves completely clattered into Schweinsteiger from that corner and both players receive treatment as the final whistle is delayed.

  • Alves heads over from the corner and that should be Germany's first victory of Euro 2012 sealed.

  • Lars Bender comes on for Muller with seconds remaining.

  • Ronaldo gets to the byline and plays in Nani whose shot is deflected for a corner!

  • Podolski goes in for a shoulder charge with Pepe, who goes down and wins the free-kick for Portugal as they look to break for one last attack.

  • Three minutes of added time to be played.

  • These time, they clash again and Coentrao is deservedly penalised for an elbow on Muller, despite the German going down incredibly easily.

  • Coentrao is penalised for a 'foul' on Muller, which looked extremely harsh, with Portugal continuing their rue their fortune over the last five minutes.

  • Good work from Lahm ensures Muller can whip the ball in but Pepe clears and Portugal break. Moutinho gets to the byline and plays back for Varela who is maginificently denied by Neuer at close range!

  • Ozil comes off for Germany with Bayern Munich's Toni Kroos replacing him.

  • Nani begins to find himself more involved as he crosses in once more with Hummels brilliantly denying Varela a clear sight on goal.

  • Nani incredibly hits the bar as his cross meanders on to the frame of the goal, the second time Portugal have struck the woodwork in the match.

  • Portugal are having a go now as Ronaldo pulls the ball back for Veloso whose curler takes a touch off Badstuber for a corner.

  • Ronaldo aims another shot on goal on the break for Portugal and Neuer is again forced into a solid parry away from goal.

  • Ozil is tremendous as he powers forward, earning a tug from Pepe along the way but an offside decision is given against Muller.

  • Meireles is switched for Portugal and Silvestre Varela takes to the field.

  • Goalscorer Gomez is taken off and Miroslav Klose, celebrating his 34th birthday, arrivals on to the scene.

  • Muller is caught by Coentrao and that allows a German substitution to be made.
