Portugal vs Slovenia live updates: Euro 2024 latest score as Cristiano Ronaldo struggles

Portugal vs Slovenia live updates: Euro 2024 latest score as Cristiano Ronaldo struggles

While this is all about a certain guy in red, I give Slovenia all the credit tonight.

When I watched them in qualifying I really enjoyed their tactical foundation: a stubborn 4-4-2 system, threat from set-pieces, quality in both penalty areas and threat on the counter-attack.

But I was concerned that they might struggle with their lack of experience in big tournaments.

Sure, they played a Portugal 2016 and played their way out of the group, but they held their own against better teams.

They also performed excellently when they beat Portugal in a friendly in March, scoring two late goals.

Slovenia are on the bad side of the table, but I would like to see them play France in the quarter-finals.
