Bruno Fernandes Nets Brace, Emmanuel Dennis Misses Penalty As Portugal Trash Nigeria in Friendly

The Super Eagles of Nigeria were walloped 4-0 at the Jose Alvalade Stadium in Lisbon by the World Cup-bound Portugal. Although it was an international friendly, Portugal dominated the West African side right from the very start of the game until the end.


Dalot showed excellent composure as he waited for a moment before squaring the ball to Bruno Fernandes who tucked home from close range, AS reports.

In the 34th minute, debutant Osayi-Samuel handled the ball in the Nigerian area gifting the hosts a penalty. Bruno Fernandes stepped up and struck it into the right-hand corner, sending goalkeeper Francis Uzoho the wrong way. 2-0 Portugal.

In the 80th minute, Nigeria were handed a chance to get back into the game ​​​​​​​after Diogo Dalot shoved over Osayi-Samuel just inside the Portugal area, and the referee pointed to the spot.​​​​​​​Emmanuel Dennis who had replaced Moses Simon moments earlier stepped up to take it, but his effort was weak and goalkeeper Rui Patrício made an easy save as it remained 2-0. One minute later, it was 3-0 ​​​​​​​after Guerreiro made an impressive effort upfront and got acres of space before setting up debutant Gonçalo Ramos who tucked the ball home from six yards.

It only took another two minutes for Portugal to get yet another goal and this time ​​​​​​​it was Joao Mário sidefooted into the net. It ended, Portugal 4-0 Nigeria.
