Portugal survived a handsome comeback to beat Italy 5-4 after extra time and qualify for the quarter-finals as Group B winners.

The game got off to a fast start with Italy's Massimiliano Esposito attempting to lob Rodrigues with an overhead-kick, before Portuguese ace Alan went close with a bicycle-kick of his own following a neat one-two with Madjer. Then Belchior took centre stage. First, the gifted No10 fired the Selecção das Quinas in front, before he created the second for Alan and then made it 3-0 with a fine finish.

Italy began the second period brightly, and Esposito's penalty sparked a fightback. Diego Maradona Jr made it 3-2 and Giuseppe Soria equalised from the spot before the 24-minute mark. A speculative drive from Giuseppe Platania edged the Azzurri in front, but Madjer levelled the scores on 31 minutes and Belchior completed his treble in injury time to snatch victory for Portugal.
