Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes delivered an outstanding performance during Portugal’s 9-0 rout of Luxembourg in a Euro 2024 qualifier.
Fernandes recently bagged the only goal for Portugal in the 1-0 win over Slovakia on the road, and continued his good form last night against Luxembourg.
Roberto Martinez’s side were overwhelming favourites to win against the European minnows, and they delivered a statement with a huge victory at home.
Fernandes was the best player on the pitch with three assists alongside a goal.
The United captain was excellent at the Estadio Algarve, providing seven key passes from 84 touches.
The playmaker also completed six crosses and won seven duels and four tackles. It was a perfect performance which earned him a 10/10 Sofascore rating.
Fernandes has been a key player for club and country over the past five years, and he has shown no signs of slowing down despite turning 29 earlier this month.
United fans will be hoping that he can replicate his scintillating form for his country at club level as they look to climb up the Premier League table after the break.
The Red Devils have been prone to squandering clear-cut chances in the early phase of the new season while their defensive record has also been questionable.
They will need an improvement in both departments to challenge for the title. United have a tricky game against Brighton & Hove Albion at home this weekend.
Brighton did the league double over United in the previous campaign, and manager Erik ten Hag will be aiming to avenge those results with a victory at home.
