Portugal thrash Nigeria 4-0 in international friendly

Portugal rounded off their preparation for the 2022 World Cup with a commanding 4-0 win over Nigeria in a friendly on Thursday.

The match was played at the Estadio Jose Alvalade Stadium in Lisbon.

Despite being without talisman Cristiano Ronaldo, the hosts took control of the game from the blast of the whistle.

Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes, scored twice in the first half as Portugal took a 2-0 lead.

Fernandes tapped in Diogo Dalot’s cross, before stroking a penalty past Francis Uzoho.

The Super Eagles could have pulled one back at 2-0, but Emmanuel Dennis saw his poor penalty saved.

Gonzalo Ramos and Joao Mario added two more goals to seal the win for Fernando Santos’ side.
