Bruno Torres was the star of the night scoring a hat trick, Rui Coimbra and Nuno Belchior scored a brace while Madjer added the other goals to give Portugal a resounding victory over Nigeria.

The Super Sand Eagles had the chance to reduce the deficit but they could not convert their chances.

The second match of the group ended 8-2 in favour of Brazil over Oman.
