Group D

United States vs Portugal
Two fairly lucky goals helped Portugal back into the game but Nuno Gomes was was brought on too late to make a difference; especially as America tried to drag the game out, deep in the Portugal half, with time-wasting tactics.

Portugal vs Poland
Portugal poured in the goals against Poland but still need to beat South Korea in their final game or hope that Poland can beat the United States if Portugal draw with the hosts.

Portugal vs South Korea
Portugal joined France and Argentina at the airport after losing to the hosts in Incheon.
