Youngster Francisco Conceicao snatched Portugal a last-gasp 2-1 win over the Czech Republic in their Euro 2024 Group F opener on Tuesday just minutes after coming off the bench.

The 21-year-old Porto winger capitalised from close range after the Czechs were unable to clear a cross, completing his teams comeback.

The Czechs went ahead against the run of play through Lukas Provods fine strike from the edge of the box after the hour mark.

Cristiano Ronaldos Portugal did not shine but dug just deep enough to claim victory, with Robin Hranacs own goal pulling them level before Conceicaos dramatic winner.

Ronaldo, 39, playing at a record-extending sixth European Championship, was denied by Stanek on three occasions as Portugal constantly looked to find the competitions all-time top goalscorer.
