Portugal and Turkey even at 0-0 at halftime at Euro 2008

Portugal defender Pepe had a goal disallowed for offside in the 17th minute, leaving the team even at 0-0 at halftime against Turkey in Group A of the European Championship.
Led by Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal had no surprises in its starting lineup, while Turkey will not count on Arda Turan and Sabri Sarioglu.
Ronaldo had another chance in the 38th, hitting a long-range free kick from the left that goalkeeper Volkan Demirel got a hand on before the ball hit the post.
Portugal reached the final at Euro 2004 and then made the semifinals at the World Cup two years ago. Turkey reached the World Cup semifinals in 2002.
