Portugal advanced to the second round of the World Cup after playing out a dreary goalless stalemate with group G winners Brazil.

Both teams had good chances, but failed to capitalize at a packed Moses Mabhida Stadium.

The draw means Brazil topped Group G while Portugal are also through to the last 16.

The Brazilians will now play Chile on Monday in Johannesburg, while Portugal will take on Spain on Tuesday in Cape Town
