The beginning of the match took place under mutual attacks of the Portuguese and Ukrainian women, but very quickly the hosts took the game under their control. First, Alves hit the target, then Jessica Silva, after unsuccessful actions, Bondarchuk did not hit the empty net. However, in the 19th minute, Jessica did not forgive - after a mistake by Apanashchenko in her own penalty area, she pushed the ball past the goalkeeper.

The blue-yellow team could only respond with an inaccurate shot by Yanchuk from the rebound. On the other hand, the Portuguese actively shot through the goal - Jacinta, Jessica Silva, Norton, Marshaw, Diana Silva were remembered for their attempts. Before the break itself, the home team scored a second time - Jessica Silva scored a double after dealing with the defenders of our national team in the penalty area.

After the break, the Portuguese continued to control the ball, regularly aggravating the situation near the goal of the Ukrainian national team. Diana Silva and Jessica Silva demonstrated their skills, but their shots either lacked accuracy, or Bondarchuk was on the spot.

The Ukrainian women responded with an inaccurate shot by Hlushchenko shortly after coming on as a substitute. Instead, the opponents punched into the plane, but Bondarchuk saved our team. In the 83rd minute, Tatiana Pinta missed the target from a killing position, and Kochneva scored the first shot of the blue-yellow team in stoppage time. In the end, the score did not change — 2:0 in favor of the Portuguese national team.
