The Luxembourg coach left his players after a feast of goals from Portugal

Without Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal did not compete and gave a historic 9-0 victory to Luxembourg in Matchday 6 of the Euro 2024 Qualifiers that will take place in Germany. The coach of the Luxembourg team, Luc Holtz, could not stand the humiliation and left his team.

Roberto Martínez’s team was without the presence of CR7, who saw a yellow against Slovakia on Friday and was suspended for one game for collecting cards.

Gonçalo Ramos jumped in his place, the new reinforcement of PSG and who shined again after the absence of the Bug. The former Benfica striker scored twice against Luxembourg (17′, 33′).

Another double in the basket! Gonçalo Inácio finished the Portuguese 4-0

It should be noted that, in the 2022 Qatar World Cup, Portugal’s former coach, Fernando Santos, chose Ramos over Cristiano for the Round of 16 against Switzerland where he responded with a hat-trick.

Another player who stood out against Luxembourg was Gonçalo Inácio, Sporting Lisbon defender, who also scored a double with two headers; the first thanks to a magical three-finger pass from Bernardo Silva (17′) and the second from a cross from Bruno Fernandes (45 + 4′) so that Portugal entered the break with a resounding 4-0 which is superior.

In the second half, Diego Jota, who hit the post, redeemed himself with another double (57′, 77′), while Ricardo Horta (67′), Bruno Fernandes (83′) and Joao Félix (88′) ) participated in the historic victory of their team at the Algarve Stadium in the city of Faro.

After conceding the eighth goal scored by Fernandes, Luxembourg coach Luc Holtz got up from the substitute’s bench and left his team with a clear look of annoyance on his face to go to the locker room early. All of this was captured by broadcast cameras.

The Portuguese team scored eight goals in a game for the fourth time in its 102-year history and this is the first time it has won with a score of nine goals, according to information from Xavi Sol, from in TUDN.

With the win, Portugal moved very close to qualifying for Euro 2024 by leading Group J of the Qualifiers with a perfect run of 18 points, followed by Slovakia, which reached 13 with its 3-0 win last Monday against Liechtenstein. Luxembourg is in third place with 10 points.
