This is a great victory for Portugal

From the beginning, true to its style and the impending obligation to defeat Luxembourg, the home team showed its offensive lethality from the first stages of the match. For example, the first quarter of an hour did not pass and the first goal came, thanks to Gonçalo Inácio in 12 minutes.

The defender of Sporting Lisbon raised his head and took advantage of a pass in the area from Bruno Fernandes. With a lot of freedom of maneuver, he gathered the ball and quickly tore off the cellophane.

Again, five minutes later, Portugal knocked on the door again and ended up increasing the difference, this time thanks to the work and grace of Gonçalo Ramos, striker for Paris Saint-Germain and who looked to dominate to attack for the next challenges in the medium term.

After a terrible start for the visitors, Bruno Fernandes appeared and offloaded Bernardo Silva, enabling Ramos to make a powerful impact. This is just the beginning of the dream for the Luxembourg leader.

Once again, to give his team a partial victory at the end of the initial period, Ramos once again made himself felt, this time, after a pass from Rafael Leao, a winger for Milan in Italy and is one of the great figures in the chosen art.

Ramos took the ball with his back; He turned and went to duel with the archer. There he took a shot that eliminated any possibility of waste, already in 33 minutes.

The fourth goal is to repeat the celebration for Inacio. The defender repeated the dose after a good cross from Bruno Fernandes towards his position. He came back and played with a header and celebration for him, who scored his first two goals in the national team.

These are the emotions of the first stage of the play; Already in the complement, once again, the trend in favor of Portuguese goals will be implemented.

Now, another protagonist has arrived: Diogo Jota, Liverpool winger, with his strong definition and a luxurious pass from Fernandes in the build-up.

In 57′, the host team has already signed the ideal hand, but this is not all.

Ten minutes later, striker Ricardo Horta made the nightmare more complicated for his opponents. After a combination in the area with Diogo Jota, the Braga striker hit a ‘bomb’ at the opposing goal, which almost broke the net.

It was the same trend: quick, deep passes to eliminate the opposing defense. The winger took advantage of a rebound in the area and shot the goal in the 77th minute.

The eighth goal went to Bruno Fernandes, a man who helped his teammates on many occasions, but finally had the green light to celebrate his. The Manchester United star received from Ricarto Horta and gave the visitors the penultimate blow.

Even the rival coach, Luc Holtz, left the bench amid anger and a silent posture after the big loss his team received.

And in the last game, to give Portugal a stunning victory in the 88th minute, Joao Felix put the icing on the cake and sealed the victory that, no doubt, looks like a way to face the Euro Cup next year.
