Portugal draw a blank against Ukraine on Ronaldo's return


Ukraine's veteran goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov kept Portugal at bay with several fine saves in the first hour before the hosts ran out of ideas in the Group B game. The Ukraine captain saved his best for the 56th minute when he brilliantly turned away Andre Silva's goalbound shot with a one-handed save. With Bernardo Silva repeatedly dribbling into dead-ends, Portugal began to lose composure as both Joao Cancelo and Ronaldo sent wayward crosses straight into touch. Portugal then had a let off when Rui Patricio blocked Yevhen Konoplyanka's shot -- Ukraine's only effort on target in the match -- and debutant Junior Moraes saw his shot from the rebound blocked. A late chance went begging for Portugal when substitute Rafa Silva missed his kick after a low Ronaldo cross found him in the area.
