In the first match of the day Portugal scored a narrow 1-0 victory over Romania. The losers spurned two excellent chances to take the lead in the first half and the two teams went to the break scoreless. Portugal changed all of that within two minutes of the restart when Soares gave them a lead that they were able to hold on to. Dissapointing result at the end of a very good effort by the young romanian players.
