On the morning of November 29 (Hanoi time), Vn88 reported two goals from Bruno Fernandes to help Portugal beat Uruguay 2-0 in Group H, World Cup 2022.
In the 54th minute, Bruno Fernandes made an uncomfortable suspension from the left wing. Under pressure from Cristiano Ronaldo’s high bounce, goalkeeper Rochet stood still, watching the ball go into the net.
In the 90th minute, Bruno continued to make a mark with a dribble that made Jose Gimenez let the ball touch his hand in the penalty area. Vn88.cx cites the image of the same Man United star who successfully performed to set the victory for the European representative, when the clock only turned 90+3.
Portugal paid off the debt it borrowed from Uruguay in the round of 16 of the World Cup four years ago, thereby gaining the right to enter the round of 16 early with 6 points.
In the final match, the EURO 2016 champion will play a procedural match with South Korea, while Uruguay must beat Ghana to have a chance to continue.
Previously, Portugal experienced a stalemate against the Uruguayan defense. “Seleccao” held the ball 70% in the first half and finished 9 times, but all of them were not dangerous situations.
Direct comment from a reporter of Vn88 mobile at the yard: On the other side of the front line, Uruguay defended the majority and showed discomfort in the counterattacks. In the 32nd minute, the South American representative nearly opened the scoring after a solo phase from the middle of the field of Rodrigo Bentancur. The Tottenham midfielder passed 3 red shirt shadows, but was stopped by goalkeeper Diogo Costa’s dash.
After scoring a goal after Bruno’s lucky handling in the 54th minute, Portugal retreated into the squad to deploy the stalking style often seen under coach Fernando Santos.
Uruguay seizes the opportunity to rise up. “La Celeste” put great pressure on Portugal’s goal in the last 15 minutes of the game but was unlucky in the decisive moments.
In the 75th minute, Maximiliano Gomez’s long shot made Costa give up, but the ball went wide of the post. 3 minutes later, Luis Suarez made the opponent’s fans heart flutter with his foot in the 5.5 m area. However, the ball just bounced off the edge of the net.
Vn88cx reported that Uruguay squandered the opportunity and paid dearly after the mistake that led to Gimenez’s penalty. After completing a brace from the penalty spot, Bruno nearly scored a hat-trick with a close-range shot in the 90+8 minute. Only 1 minute later, the 28-year-old midfielder held his head in regret when the kick from outside the forbidden area hit the column.
After 2 matches, coach Diego Alonso’s teachers and students have not scored any goals and are at the bottom of Group H with 1 point. They ranked behind Korea due to the poor difference (-2 vs -1).
Comments far from Vn88 quoted in the 54th minute, Bruno Fernandes hung the ball from the left wing for Cristiano Ronaldo to head in, opening the score for Portugal. Immediately after this situation, the electronic board showed Ronaldo’s name as the scorer.
The 37-year-old striker celebrates enthusiastically after scoring in the second consecutive match at the 2022 World Cup. If this goal is included, CR7 has had the 9th goal in his career at the biggest tournament in the world.
Minutes later, FIFA announced again that Portugal’s goal was scored by Bruno. This means that Ronaldo has not touched the ball when jumping. After 51 appearances for his homeland, Bruno scored his first World Cup goal in his career. Vn88.cx sports football published this information.
Bruno’s joy did not stop there. In the 90th minute, he went on a technical ball, causing Jose Gimenez to let the ball touch his hand in the penalty area. It was also the number 8 midfielder who doubled the gap for Portugal with a penalty kick “jumping the flute”.
If he took the opportunity better, Bruno would have had a hat-trick, even poker. In the minutes of injury time 90+9 and 90+10, he had 2 good chances, but could not beat the goalkeeper and the post.
Bruno sublimated, but also need to give praise to Diogo Costa. Without this save in the first half, the game could have taken a different turn.
Ronaldo and his teammates got 6 points after 2 matches and officially passed the World Cup group stage for the 4th time in the last 5 World Cups. In the last match, Ronaldo can be rested, when “Seleccao” plays a procedural match with Korea.
