Northern Ireland whitewash dismal Portugal to reach World Cup of Darts quarter-finals for first time since 2016

A closely fought match on paper was not so when it came to the result as Northern Ireland whitewashed Portugal without dropping a leg to reach the World Cup of Darts Quarter-Finals for the first time since 2016.

In the second round, it becomes singles first of all with Brendan Dolan taking on Jose Marques. 'The History Maker' breezed through 4-0 with a 95 average and was especially good on his doubles producing 57% to put his country in a good position.

All eyes were now on De Sousa to save Portugal's chances or Northern Ireland would come through but 'The Special One' couldn't produce in a dismal display averaging 85 compared to a comprehensive one for Gurney who won 4-0.

This alongside two 180's and a 96 average despite himself only hitting 28% on his doubles but his scoring proved the difference.
