Two goals in the opening five minutes, coupled with the beautiful weather in Leigh, sent Switzerland on holiday. They thought the game was over but Portugal dominated the match to earn a deserved draw in their Euro 2022 opener.
Coumba Sow and Rahel Kiwic put Portugal on the back foot but they roared back for the remaining 85 minutes, gaining their reward through Diana Gomes and Jéssica Silva after the break.
