At the 2002 World Cup, we were treated to group stages of unusual excitement, losing both France – the holders – and Argentina – the second favourites. The problem was that South Korea then found a way by Italy and Spain, so that at the business end of things we were left with ties that felt predictable and duly went as expected. Epics there were not.

Also eliminated in that roundrobin were Portugal and Uruguay – though neither were serious contenders to win that competition, which is not the case as regards this one. There’s a brilliant steam hiding in the Seleção squad that includes perhaps the most vibrant, varied and interesting array of attackers in the world. But we’ve seen little to make us believe Fernando Santos is likely to find it so, like one or two other countries, as things stand they’re relying on their better players doing enough good stuff at big moments to see them progress.

That was what happened in Portugal’s opener – a gift of a penalty followed by a purple patch that should’ve settled things – before Ghana were inexplicably ushered back into a game that looked over, the difference between victory and embarrassment an Iñaki Williams slip. But they got there in the end, know that the best side in the group stages is rarely the side dancing around following the final – and yet could really use a performance tonight.

Not, though, as much as Uruguay, who made sure not to lose their first game, but didn’t win it when they’ll have expected to. And though, even if they lose tonight, a win over Ghana will probably take them through, they won’t want to go into that needing three points, so will banking on an improved performance.

The good news for them – and us – is that they’re more than capable of that, terrifying in defence and with attacking players able to conjure all sorts. Which is to say that , at the end of an already-colossal day, we’re going to end it – and the competition’s Tetris period – with a prime cut of World Cup FootballTM.

Key events

72 mins Two more changes for Uruguay, Gomez and Suarez for Cavani and Nunez. I’m not sure I’d have removed both of those.

71 mins Though Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t get the touch,” says Kári Tulinius, “his movement created the goal as much as Fernandes’ pass. Say what you will about Ronaldo, and there’s a lot to say, his monomaniacal desire to make his numbers go up is an element of chaos in a match heading for nil-nil.”

I agree – it was a great run, and a great jump – partly because it was him, Rochet couldn’t move, and by the time he’d missed the ball, it was too late.

70 mins Nunez gets Pepe one-on-one, thinks he’s nipping by, and then a wily toe extends to take him down and the ball away. Lovely defending from the maestro.

69 mins Yup, here comes Leao, replacing Neves. I’d not be surprised to see him score or square it for someone who scores.

68 mins More detail from Tom Lepage: “Just as an FYI, the stadium announcer declared Bruno was getting the goal in minute 60 or so. Ronaldo was visibly annoyed. It was great.”

Personally, I blame Erik ten Hag.

67 mins I stand corrected: Jorge Morreira emails to say Fifa have changed their minds and given the goal to Fernandes. That seems the correct call to me – it looked that way in real time, and nothing I’ve seen since has made me appraise the goal differently.

65 mins Pellistri is quickly into the action, slinging over a cross that Portugal clear, but only just. Now here comes Pellistri again, doing Guerreiro on the outside … before a heavy touch takes the ball behind.

64 mins Portugal maraud down the left with Guerreiro, whose cross is a goodun, Olivera doing really well to dive in and lever away from Ronaldo. If Uruguay commit men forward, I’d not be surprised to see them concede again on the counter, because Bruno and Bernardo move the ball so well. I wonder if Santos will get Leao on for that reason.

62 mins Double change for Uruguay: De Arrascaeta and Pellistri for Vecino and Godin. That’ll mean 4-4-2 as opposed to 3-5-2, and as I type that, Valverde puts Diogo Costa under and almost blocks his clearance with a brave leap.

61 mins Uruguay are showing a but more attacking inclination now, Vecino crossing from the right and overhitting it by plenty.

59 mins “I am sure he didn’t touch it,” emails James Foster, “and certainly it didn’t do more than brush his hair. Fernandes’ goal in my opinion.”

If it brushes his hair, it’s his, but I’m not sure it does. But I’m even surer Fifa aren’t confiscating the goal from him – though they’ve got to televise him finding out if they do.

58 mins Varela advances down the right and crosses nicely – for Cavani, who’s done well to lose his man. But well though he drills fresh air into the corner, it wasn’t his intention and the chance disappears.

57 mins Ronaldo now has nine World Cup goals, the same as Eusebio. But he’s limping after a challenge with Nunez.

56 mins As things stand: Portugal are through and Uruguay need to beat Ghana in their final game, while hoping South Korea don’t beat Portugal by more.

GOAL! Portugal 1-0 Uruguay (Fernandes 54)

Or is it?! Bruno drifts left, a little feint conjured the yard he needs for a cross, and he curls a gorgeous ball onto Ronaldo’s gel, and the ball doesn’t deviate on its way into the corner, but of course Ronaldo celebrates like he’s Keith Houchen. I think it’s Bruno’s goal, but it’ll be given to Ronaldo.

54 mins Portugal continues probing, but the lack of width is a problem….

52 mins An attack into space! Bernardo breaks through the middle, feeds Felix to his left, and Bruno is in the centre, wailing for a cross … but his mate clouts into the side-netting, probably because, like the rest of us, he fancied being entertained by the tantrum which follows.

51 mins Neves went off but is now back on, then a fan invades the pitch waving a rainbow flag. Godspeed, old mate.

50 mins Neves is still down…

48 mins Vecino is late on Neves, knee and foot into thigh and calf respectively – he does well to avoid a caution – then Olivera clatters Felix – he does well to avoid a second caution.

48 mins Felix runs at Uruguay off the left and tries to clip a reverse=pass in behind; it’s deflected behind for a corner … that comes to nowt. You guessed that, I imagine.

47 mins I don’t think we’ll be much different – ​​at least not until someone scores. But if Portugal get a goal and even if they win, Uruguay will still need to beat Ghana, as they do the way things stand.

46 mins We go again…

“The champion suit-wearer so far must be the Japan manager,” advises Charles Antaki, “in both games he’s rocked a three-piece, even during the midday kick-off. Hopefully Fifa has a prize for that?”

A mirror?

“Just one small thing – so far,” says Marlise Lienhard ominously. “The smooth Felipe Melo is not ‘honey’ in Portuguese. It would be ‘mel’. But let’s apply poetic license here.”

I’m afraid you’ve overestimated my linguistic ability – I meant “mellow”.

Half time email: “I see what you mean about the Uruguay manager’s rig out,” says Rod Wooden. “The only word for it is weird. But I have to say that I have also been known to wear oversize trainers with no socks, my excuse being that I live in tropical clime (Colombia) and suffer from swollen toes. But certainly not with a suit, in fact the last time I remember wearing a suit was at my wedding, and look how that turned out.”

I too don’t quite grasp the wearing or suits – nor shoes. Air Max and Havaianas are the only footwear a fashionista needs.

Half-time: Portugal 0-0 Uruguay

Portugal were the better side but Uruguay came closer to scoring – and what a goal it would’ve been. But instead we’re locked at 0-0, and I’d not be surprised if we sill were an hour from now.

45+2 mins I wonder whether, if this was knockout, either side’s approach would be different. Ultimately, a draw kind of suits both – Uruguay won’t want to risk losing to win, and Portugal know that beating South Korea will likely take the group. Anyway, Guerreiro gets down the left courtesy of a nice leave by Bernardo, Felix, sending the ball out wide. His cross is low and hard, but no one gambles, and that’s the last action of the half.

45 mins We’ll have three added minutes. I was rather hoping for treble.
