Spellbinding Fernandes stars in emphatic Portugal win

As Martinez made multiple substitutions and the hosts eased off marginally, Luxembourg were presented with opportunities to get goals back but a resolute Portugal defence – featuring United’s Dalot at left-back – remained composed and gave little away.

Bruno’s star shone all the way through into the closing stages, with our magnifico adding his name to the scoresheet with a calm finish after being found by Horta, just minutes before Joao Felix added a ninth goal.

The massive victory means the Selecao remain five points clear at the top of Group J and still have a 100 per cent record in Euro 2024 qualifying.

Due to Luxembourg and Slovakia having to play one another in the next round of qualifiers in October, and Portugal playing the latter during that international break too, Bruno and Diogo are now very much on the cusp of reaching the tournament in Germany next summer.
