There's the first chance of the game, and it falls to entirely the wrong person. Andres Iniesta combines with Jordi Alba and David Silva on the left flank, and eventually the Barcelona star finds a hole in the defence to push through. He passes to Alvaro Negredo six yards out, but the striker has Bruno Alves in very close attendance and barely gets a touched before the ball is flicked away.
Portugal's hearts were in their mouths as said flick found a Spain shirt at the edge of the box in plenty of space. The ball was rocketed back in, almost skimming Rui Patricio's crossbar with the goalkeeper beaten. That really should have been in, however, and if it was anyone but Real Madrid right back Alvaro Arbeloa, we'd have expected it to. Still 0-0 here.
