PORTO, Portugal (AP) - Two second-half goals in seven minutes from Raphael Guerreiro and Eder helped Portugal to a 3-0 win over Norway in a warmup game Sunday for the European Championship.

Ricardo Quaresma put the Portuguese ahead with a spectacular dipping shot in the 13th. Missing Cristiano Ronaldo, who played in the Champions League final the previous day, Quaresma was Portugal’s standout player.

Portugal gave a composed performance and was mostly in control of the match, though Valon Berisha headed against the woodwork for Norway in the 57th and the Portuguese left it late to seal their victory.

Left-back Guerreiro struck in the 65th with a curling free kick, and center-forward Eder tapped in another.

Portugal is in Group F at Euro 2016 along with Austria, Hungary and Iceland.

Norway didn’t qualify.
