Minute 8: Brief stoppage in play as Turkey’s Servet Cetin is down on the pitch grasping his knee.

Minute 6: Cristiano Ronaldo takes his first crack at goal, but the left-footer from distance is well off the mark.

Minute 4: Already the first booking of the match by Fandel, and it’s Kazim Kazim down for a yellow.

Minute 2: Bosingwa comes forward and crosses to the near post, but does poorly with it and it’s out for a goal kick.

Kickoff: Referee Herbert blows his whistle and we are underway at Stade de Genève!

Pre-match: Cristiano Ronaldo, fresh off his 31-goal campaign for English and European champion Manchester United leads Portugal into their Euro 2008 campaign, looking to one-up their losing final performance four years ago. Turkey, meanwhile, are making their first appearance in the finals since 2000, looking to better their quarterfinal run from that year.
