Portugal beat Bosnia and Herzegovina to maintain top spot

Portugal, this Saturday evening in Lisbon, continued its qualification without errors in the Group J qualifiers for Euro 2024, with its third consecutive victory, against Bosnia and Herzegovina (3-0) this time. This result allows him to keep three points ahead of Slovakia (the second), which, for its part, won in Iceland (2-1).

But it was not easy for a long time at the Estadio da Luz, because the players of Faruk Hadzibegic initially developed without complexes, like this distant shooter from Adrian Barisic, forcing Diogo Costa, lobotomised, to tap in his right window ( 22). Fortunately for the Selecao, Edin Dzeko did not frame his recovery from ten meters out, which was easy for him (29).

Name it Bruno Fernandes

The Portuguese lacked attacking power, and he only thought they opened the scoring with a Ronaldo header, but he was a little offside (23), while Ibrahim Cicic only worked on Joao Felix’s try (37). However, they took advantage, just before the break, when Bernardo Silva, who was perfectly understood by Bruno Fernandes, deceived the Bosnian goalkeeper with a spoonful of the ball with his left foot (44).

Next Tuesday, the Portuguese will travel to Iceland (8:45pm, live on La Chaîne L’Equipe) to consolidate their lead in this group and also celebrate Ronaldo’s 200th selection.
