He unleashed a ferocious low shot that found its mark in the corner of the net, providing the much-needed breakthrough. Slovakia, on the other hand, might rue their missed opportunities to secure at least a point. Lukás Haraslín came agonizingly close when he struck the post just moments before Portugal took the lead.

Ivan Schranz, too, had a golden opportunity from inside the Portuguese box in the 58th minute. But he missed the chance to equalize. Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese talisman, couldn't manage to secure a crucial second goal for his team. He had a close call when he was booked for a late challenge that saw him inadvertently contact the home goalkeeper.

Martin Dubravka, with a high boot in the 62nd minute. Ronaldo was fortunate to avoid a red card on that occasion. Roberto Martinez's team currently sits atop Group J with a flawless 15 points from five matches, positioning themselves on the verge of qualification. Remarkably, they haven't conceded a single goal so far.

Their next challenge will be hosting Luxembourg in the Algarve on Monday. Where they aim to maintain their winning streak. However, the Portugal captain will be absent for the upcoming match against Luxembourg due to a yellow card he received for a challenge on Martin Dubrvaka in the second half.

This unfortunate booking stemmed from a moment. When he couldn't control the ball with his first touch and then compounded the error by swiping at the loose ball. Despite it being well within the grasp of the Slovakia goalkeeper.
