DURBAN, South Africa — Portugal reached the second round of the World Cup on Friday after a 0-0 draw with group winner Brazil as two of soccer's most powerful offenses couldn't score.

Brazil had already secured advancement and won Group G with seven points, two more than Portugal. Ivory Coast, which beat North Korea 3-0, was third with four points. The Koreans ended with zero.

Portugal came into the match with a comfortable goal differential to just about guarantee its spot in the round of 16 even with a loss.

"Portugal came playing back, trying to use Cristiano Ronaldo on the counterattacks," Julio Cesar said. "It was a difficult group so it was good to finish first. Now the hard part begins and we can't lose anymore."
