  • Thank you very much for joining me today for the live commentary. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Have a good evening. It's goodbye from me for now.

  • Both Portugal and Ghana are out of the World Cup! While the African side finish bottom of Group G, the Seleccao end up third, level on points with the USA but with an inferior goal difference. This means that Germany and the USA are through to the last 16.

  • Gyan takes the free kick, and it goes just over the crossbar. Seconds later, Moutinho's effort on goal goes wide.

    90+5
  • Gyan is hacked to the floor by Moutinho, and things are getting messy. The Portugal midfielder gets a yellow card, but the Ghana striker is very angry with the challenge.

    90+4
  • CHANCE! Once again Ronaldo is denied by the Ghana goalkeeper! The Portugal star could have had a hat-trick today.

    90+2
  • CHANCE! Brilliant cross from the right from Nani that Ronaldo tries to turn in, but his effort goes just wide.

    90+1
  • Beto is in tears now after being substituted in the final minutes of the contest. Meanwhile, four minutes of injury time have been awarded.

    90
  • Another World Cup history for you... Ronaldo has become the first ever Portuguese player to score in three successive World Cups.

    90
  • Beto is finally replaced and on comes Eduardo.

    89
  • Beto is in visible pain now and probably needs to be substituted.

    86
  • Now Varela tries his luck, but his effort is saved.

    84
  • SAVE! Ronaldo goes close again with a fierce shot from close range, but this time Dauda makes the save from point-blank range.

    82
  • Mubarak Wakaso takes an effort on goal with power, but it goes just wide.

    82
  • Change for Ghana. Mubarak Wakaso has come on for Andre Ayew

    81
  • Portugal 2-1 Ghana Cristiano Ronaldo makes it 2-1 to the Seleccao with 10 minutes of normal time remaining! A wonderful cross is floated in from the left which the Ghana defence fails to clear away, as Dauda gives the ball to Ronaldo just yards out. The Real Madrid forward makes no mistake in slamming the ball home.

    80
  • Jordan Ayew is shown the yellow card for his challenge on William Carvalho.

    78
  • Ghana are making a change now. Afriyie Acquah comes on for Mohammed Rabiu.

    75
  • The corner is cleared, but Ronaldo is still struggling.

    74
  • Ronaldo is down on the pitch and seems to be in pain. He is hobbling at the moment, as Portugal prepare to take a corner.

    73
  • Jordan Ayew replaces Majeed Waris for Ghana.
