Portugal set the pace at Euro 2008

Portugal set the pace.
EURO 2008: Portugal 2-0 Turkey (Pepe 61, Mireiles 90') 31,000, Geneva

Portugal established themselves as one of the favourites for the European Championship with an assured 2-0 win over Turkey in Geneva.

Before Pepe fired in after a slick raid just after the hour, Cristiano Ronaldo once and Nuno Gomes twice hit the Turkish woodwork.

Raul Mireiles secured the win at the death after Ronaldo had led a counter-attack. Turkey looked distinctly second best in all areas and lost the possession battle 60-40%.

The Portuguese tackle fellow winners the Czech Republic in Geneva on Wednesday, while Turkey play Switzerland in Basel.
