HT: Portugal 0-0 France

The referee brings the half to a close.

Just prior to the break, Conceicao tries his luck from outside the box.

It sails over the bar with Maignan not concerned whatsoever.

103. Portugal continue to play a patient passing game.

Such is the pace of this game that 41-year-old Pepe has not even broken into a sweat in 103 minutes of football.

France are not pressing at all when they do not have the ball now.

101. Another big chance for Portugal.

The ball drops to Leao who shoots but it is well blocked.

He has a second bite of the cherry but there is just no way through this French defence.

99. It seems an apt given the time elapsed to say we have 99 problems and a goal ain’t one.

Dembele seems the one person most likely to do anything positive for Didier Deschamps’ side.

It’s amazing that Diogo Jota hasn’t come on for Portugal, that guy gets goal at important moments.

Jota the slotter.

97. Dembele goes on a mazy run and skips past Pepe.

As he gets to the box, instead of shooting, he lays it off to Mbappe.

He cuts inside onto his right foot and looks to shoot but Pepe slides in to make a timely block.

95. It is hard to imagie the intensity of the game could drop any further but it seems to.

Both sides are passing the ball around no apparent end game to the move.

To Portugal’s credit they seem more keen to attack, France appear to be sitting back happy to go to penalties.
