Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes effortlessly fired the ball into the net from outside the area to show he’s in excellent form ahead of Portugal’s Euro 2020 campaign.
The playmaker had already opened the scoring against Israel, before Cristiano Ronaldo and Joao Cancelo sealed the match for the current European champions.
However when the ball fell to Fernandes in injury time he made no mistake. One touch and then he absolutely pinged it into the top corner of the net where the goalkeeper was never going to get it. The 26-year-old literally could not have placed it any better.
A Wednesday night 4-0 win against Israel isn’t exactly the ultimate test, of course, but the sweet strike – and a brace for Fernandes overall – shows he might be finally ready to show his best form for his country.
Fernandes scored 28 goals for Man United last season but only had two for his country going into this friendly game, where he doubled his tally in one match. Portugal have an incredibly tough group at Euro 2020. They face France, Germany and Hungary in what’s widely being called the tournament’s ‘Group of Death’.
However with Fernandes in this form, plus the firepower of Ronaldo and the young talent Portugal have, they still have a very good chance of making the knockout round.
