Full Time: PORTUGAL 0-0 BRAZIL.
This one certainly won't live long in the memory, a dreadful, dreadful match.
The ball almost breaks for Danny inside the area but Julio Cesar is alive to the danger and faces off his line to claim the ball. Danny needs treatment after colliding with the Brazilian keeper.
It's almost a winner for Brazil as Ramires' shot takes a deflection and appears to be looping over Eduardo until the Portugal goalkeeper somehow manages to tip the ball over the bar. Great save and not in keeping with the rest of the match.
Five minutes of stoppage time.
Brazil will progress as group winners, with Portugal followng them into the last-16 as runners-up.
Both teams will be content with the outcome, but it's been a grim 90 minutes of non-entertainment.
Five minutes to go, all the substitutions have been made, there were seven first-half bookings but, crucially, there have been no goals - and little sign of one.
The flurry of changes continues with Grafite coming on for Luis Fabiano.
A late change by Portugal as Raul Meireles makes way for Luis Miguel Veloso.
Brazil bring on Santos Ramires for the ineffective Julio Baptista.
Alves over-hits a cross to no-one in particular and it dribbles out for a throw-in.
Portugal played some superb stuff when they thrashed North Korea but they have also been involved in two of the dullest games at this World Cup as well.
Ronaldo manages to get on the end of Simao's cross but can't find the target with his shot.
Ricardo Costa's cross goes out for a throw-in. Enough said.
There seems to be very little doubt now that both these teams will be in the last-16. How Ivory Coast must be wishing they hadn't been so defensive in the goalless draw with Portugal.
Alves' 35-yard shot is very, very wide.
The best that can be said of this half of football is that there's not been a booking so far.
Ronaldo tries his luck with another long-range free-kick but it's an awful attempt and bobbles horribly wide.
Portugal have edged things since the interval but it's still a largely dire affair.
Portugal bring Pedro Mendes for Pepe.
Raul Meireles must have caught Julio Cesar as the goalkeeper needs lengthy treatment before returning to the fray.
Ronaldo's excellent jinking run causes panic in the Brazil defence. The ball eventually comes to Jose Raul Meireles whose close-range right-footed effort is saved by Julio Cesar.
Portugal are at least trying to attack now but some of their passing is very slapdash.
Luis Fabiano does well to direct a header towards goal but Eduardo makes a simple save.
To sum up the game both teams gift possession to the opposition before along-range effort almost goes out for a throw-in. Dire stuff indeed.
First change by Portugal as Duda makes way for Sabrosa Simao.
Ronaldo's 40-yard free-kick comes off Pepe's heel which diverts the flight of the ball over the crossbar.
Another Ronaldo cross is headed away from danger but Portugal have started the half brightly.
Ronaldo finds some space down the left but Lucio does very well to get back to block the Real Madrid's star cross.
Portugal make an early foray into the Brazilian penalty area but it peters out.
Portugal get what will hopefully be a more entertaining half of football underway.
Half Time: PORTUGAL 0-0 BRAZIL.
The referee manages to make it seven yellow cards in a dull first half as Fabio Coentrao goes into his book just before the break.
Before Felipe Melo can get himself sent off, Dunga takes him off, Josue replacing him.
Felipe Melo gains his retribution on Pepe and becomes the sixth player to be booked.
It's certainly not a myth that Brazil are a functional side under Dunga. There's very little flair on show in this match, from either side. Mind you, it would be no surprise if Brazil were crowned champions once again in just over a fortnight's time.
Pepe is finally booked for raking his studs down the back of Felipe Melo's Achilles.
Luis Fabiano manages to latch on to Maicon's deep cross but contrives to head wide of the target when it seemed easier to score.
Nilmar creates a half-chance for himself but crashes a shot very high and very wide.
After that brief flurry of activity the two teams revert to walking pace once again.
Pepe is lucky to escape a booking for a robust challenge.
Brazil are starting to stretch Portugal and Eduardo is forced to come off his line to gather a teasing cross.
Suddenly the match livens up. Play swings to the other end where Tiago is rightly booked for diving inside the area.
Almost 1-0 to Brazil. Nilmar's shot is pushed on to the woodwork by the excellent Eduardo as Portugal survive, just.
The referee is trying to liven things up with some exuberant gesticulating.
Ronaldo tries a flick that doesn't come off. Cue more exasperation from the Real Madrid man.
Cristiano Ronaldo has barely had a kick and is starting to vent his frustration towards his team-mates.
Duda thinks it should be red, and is booked for telling the referee so.
Handball by Juan. Booking for the Brazilian.
Luis Fabiano's shot is deflected for a corner as Brazil exert some rare pressure.
No sign of a goal here though as both teams go through the motions.
A second goal for Ivory Coast may set the Portuguese nerves jangling.
Tiago lashes a volley wide as Portugal create their first real opening of the match.
The match is opening up slightly as Daniel Alves tries his luck again only for Eduardo to make another comfortable save.
Luis Fabiano is booked for a late lunge on Pepe.
Portugal may be interested to learn Ivory Coast are ahead already.
Brazil are dominating possession, Portugal have barely had a kick so far.
The atmosphere inside the stadium is superb but the action on the pitch has not matched it as yet.
Daniel Alves has the first shot of the game but his long-range effort fails to trouble Eduardo in the Portugal goal.
Nothing much to get too excited about so far as both teams test each other out.
Brazil have drafted in Julio Baptista and Daniel Alves for the suspended Kaka and injured Elano. Nimar comes in for Robinho, who drops to the substitute's bench.
Carlos Queiroz has made four changes to the team which thrashed North Korea, with Duda, Danny, Pepe and Ricardo Costa all starting.
Hopefully it will be a good game but, with Brazil already through and Portugal virtually guaranteed to join them in the last 16, both teams may decide to preserve energy before their next match.
Brazil get the match underway.
A victory would see Portugal top the group but they only need a draw to confirm their place in the last-16.
Brazil have barely moved out of first gear to beat North Korea 2-1 and Ivory Coast 3-1 while Portugal were held to a grim goalless draw by the Elephants before hammering the Asian outfit 7-0 on Monday.
One of the most eagerly anticipated of the group games takes place at the Moses Mabhida Stadium as Portugal take on Brazil.
