Portugal Qualified for Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup through Fernandez Goals

-

- Advertisment -spot_img

Portugal qualified for Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup thanks to Bruno Fernandes double goals in their play-off final win over North Macedonia.

Fernandes won the ball in midfield, played a one-two with Manchester United team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo and fired home from the edge of the box to open the scoring in Porto.

He then volleyed in Diogo Jota’s cross for the second having helped start the move himself outside his own box.

The Macedonians, who stunned Italy in the semis, offered little throughout.

They never looked like reaching a first World Cup as they failed to test Portugal goalkeeper Diogo Costa once.

Portugal qualify for their sixth World Cup in a row with 37 year old Ronaldo,going to the tournament for a fifth and potentially final time.

Fernando Santos has led his country to Euro 2016 and the 2019 Nations League and is now targeting their first ever World Cup crown.
