Belgium edges Portugal, reaches quarterfinals at Euro 2020

SEVILLE, Spain (AP) — Belgium held Cristiano Ronaldo scoreless and defeated defending champion Portugal 1-0 to advance to the quarterfinals of the European Championship. Thorgan Hazard scored the winning goal in the 42nd minute. Hazard’s swerving shot from outside the area left Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patrício wrong-footed and late to swat the ball away. Belgium will next face Italy in the quarterfinals on Friday in Munich. Ronaldo is still one goal away from becoming the all-time men’s top scorer in international soccer. He is tied with former Iran striker Ali Daei at 109 goals.
