It initially looked as though Cristiano Ronaldo had drawn level with Portugal's record World Cup goalscorer Eusebio when he rose to try and head in Fernandes' 54th-minute cross. Fernandes' goal, followed by a penalty in added time, proved enough to turn a tight and tense contest Portugal's way and put them in pole position to top their group ahead of facing South Korea on Friday. Uruguay, meanwhile, will need to beat Ghana in their quest for a place in the round of 16.
The Brazilians face Cameroon in their final group game, while the Swiss fight it out with Serbia.
