Raul Meireles GOAL VIDEO: Portugal Takes Lead Against North Korea

North Korea looked surprisingly impressive against the Brazilian juggernaut in their first World Cup match last week, while Portugal did not manage a single goal in its scoreless draw with the Ivory Coast. But the Portuguese drought did not last Monday in Cape Town.

Raul Meireles knocked in a goal in the 28th minute, giving Portugal the lead over its Group G rival. Tiago was credited with an assist on the play. Scroll down for video.

UPDATE: Portugal scored a flurry of goals beginning in the game's 52nd minute. Scroll down to see their first four goals, as well as Cristiano Ronaldo's (the game's sixth). North Korea ultimately suffered an astounding 7-0 loss.
