Roberto Martinez’s Portugal resume Euro 2024 action when they face a captivating Turkey side buoyed by raucous support at the Westfalenstadion on Saturday.

Cristiano Ronaldo and co. got the result they wanted as they squeezed past the Czech Republic with a last-minute 2-1 victory in Leipzig, but their unconvincing performance will give Turkey some hope.

But if that game in Leipzig was a little tepid, Turkey’s first game at Euro 2024 brought all the drama, from biblical storms and pre-match skirmishes to Georgia’s tournament debut and two goal-of-the-tournament contenders.

Those results leave these two sides battling out for control of Group F, with three points for either practically ensuring qualification at the top of the group .

Follow the score and all the latest updates from Turkey v Portugal below – plus the reaction to Georgia v Czech Republic and build-up to Belgium v Romania in the day’s late game:
