THE Portuguese football team was eliminated today from the U-20 World Cup, drawing with South Africa (1-1) in the game of the third and final day of Group F.

In Bielsko-Biala, Poland, Rafael Leão gave the 'team of quinas' the lead in the 19th minute, but James Monyane equalized for a penalty shoot-out in the 53rd minute when Jota (60) missed a penalty.

Portugal finished the group stage in third place, behind Argentina and South Korea, who beat the South American team 2-1, finishing both with six points, against four of the Portuguese and one of the South Africans.

The Portuguese team could have been one of the top four ranked third, but it turned out to be only the fifth, having scored less than Panama.
