Portugal and Turkey are playing their match of the second round of the group stage of the European Championship in Group F in Dortmund.

Portugal approached this game as the clear favorites and demonstrated it in the first half. First, Bernardo Silva opened the scoring after a pass from Nuno Mendes, and then an incredible bizarre incident occurred.

Joao Cancelo attempted to launch a counter-attack targeting Ronaldo, but Cristiano was positioned centrally while the pass went to the right. The star Portuguese forward started expressing his frustration towards his teammate, but Turkish defender Samet Akaydin intervened in the situation. The Panathinaikos defender did not notice that the goalkeeper had come out of his goal and casually sent the ball past Altay Bayindir.

This bizarre goal will surely be remembered by the fans for a long time, and at halftime, the teams went off the pitch with Portugal leading 2-0.
