Portugal and Croatia faced off in what promised to be an exciting game, instead the game was pretty dull as none of the sides managed to have a shot on goal in 90 minutes and Portugal snatched a win through a Ricardo Quaresma goal late in Extra time. Here are 5 things we learnt from Croatia vs Portugal.
1 Croatia missed their chances
Croatia played brilliantly in the group stages , and caused a major upset defeating Spain and were responsible for setting up possibly the tie of the round of 16, Spain vs Italy. They were full of confidence and faced a Portugal team which failed to win any of their three games. Croatia should have done much better , instead were wasteful and never looked like threatening.
