British infantry assault the French-occupied village!
Aftermath: British infantry, supported by Portuguese troops make 3 assaults on the village. However, despite their valiant attempts, they are unable to dislodge the numerically superior French troops in prepared defensive positions. The French cavalry, having swept away the British cavalry's blocking attempt, meanwhile threatens to outflank the British force. Under these circumstances, the British decide to disengage and live to fight another day...
