Hazard’s strike eliminates Portugal as Belgium reach Euro 2020 Q/finals

Thorgan Hazard was the hero, as his superb striker helped Belgium eliminate defending champions, Portugal. 

With three minutes to play before halftime, the only goal in the game was scored, when Thorgan Hazard blasted a swerving shot past Rui Patricio to give the Belgians a 1-0 lead against the run of play.

Portugal dominated the entire game with waves of attack, but could not break down the Red Devils defense nor score against Thibaut Courtois. 

Cristiano Ronaldo missed the chance to set a record as the player with the most international goals, but he will leave the European Championship as the highest scorer in the continental tournament.

The defending champions have been eliminated from the competition, while Belgium will face off with Italy in the quarterfinal.
