Portugal have qualified for the last 16 at the Euros with a 3-0 victory – and a great dollop of help from their Turkish adversaries. 

Portugal took an early lead via a Bernardo Silva goal but were then helped by two almighty mistakes. 

Samet Akaydin miscued a backpass in the first half as goalkeeper Altay Bayindir came rushing out fo rthe ball, passing beyond the custodian into his empty goal.

And Bruno Fernandes had an easy finish after being teed up by Cristiano Ronaldo after two defenders slipped while trying to stop Portugal’s attack.
