Portugal started the Algarve Cup with the right foot. The national women's football team beat Norway 2-0, on matchday 1, played this Wednesday, February 16, at the Estádio Municipal de Lagos.
Tatiana Pinto, in the 22nd minute, and Carolina Mendes (90+3′) scored the goals against the Norwegian team, ranked 12th in the world ranking.
In the second goal, Jéssica Silva's letter pass that isolated Carolina Mendes was in the eye.
With this victory, Portugal reached the first place in the group, being one step away from ensuring their presence in the final, as they only need to be one of the two teams with the highest score and the best goal difference.
The Portuguese team will play again on the 20th, against Sweden, at Estádio do Algarve.
The start of the match is scheduled for 17:05.
