FIFA World Cup 2022

As Portugal defeated Uruguay to go to the World Cup’s round of 16, Bruno Fernandes scored twice.

Portugal defeated Uruguay 2-0 on Monday, and as a result, joined France and Brazil in the World Cup’s knockout rounds. Bruno Fernandes scored both goals. Nine minutes into the second half, the Manchester United midfielder netted a cross-corner goal. He later added a penalty in stoppage time after Jose Maria Gimenez was penalized for handball.

As Portugal has already advanced from Group H, Uruguay must now defeat Ghana in order to have any chance of doing the same.

Both teams made three changes from their opening matches. Portugal substituted veteran Pepe for the hurt Danilo Pereira, who suffered shattered ribs in training.

Portugal dominated the first half, controlling possession of the ball and creating numerous opportunities, but they never put Uruguay goalkeeper Sergio Rochet to the test.

In the opening 45 minutes, Cristiano Ronaldo, the captain of Portugal, was generally inconspicuous, but he did delight the crowd with a shoulder pass to find William Carvalho, who volleyed over.
