Bruno Fernandes scored twice as Portugal beat North Macedonia 2-0 to qualify for the FIFA World Cup 2022. The team of North Macedonia, which made a big upset by defeating Italy, was dreaming of winning this match, but Portugal did not give Macedonia a chance to hold its own in the match.
This team could not score any goal in the whole match. At the same time, Bruno scored two brilliant goals for Portugal and played an important role in leading his team to the FIFA World Cup 2022.
The team of North Macedonia has not yet become a part of the FIFA World Cup and Bruno made the wait for this team longer. He converted Cristiano Ronaldo’s pass into the goal in the first half to give his team a significant lead. In the second half, he gave his team the winning lead by scoring the second goal on the excellent pass of Diogo Jota.
Ronaldo to play fifth world cup:
This is the fifth time this team has reached FIFA after the arrival of Portugal’s legendary football player Cristiano Ronaldo in the team. In the presence of 37-year-old Ronaldo, his team had the best performance in 2006, when this team reached the semi-finals.
Portugal have qualified for the World Cup, but this team will need to balance their game. There are many aggressive forward players in this team, but Portugal’s traditional approach has been defensive.
North Macedonia, ranked 67th in the world rankings, finished second in Group J. After this, this team made a big upset by defeating European champion Italy. This team also started well against Portugal.
However, in the 14th minute of the match, Portugal had a chance and Ronaldo tried to score with the left foot. However, his shot goes outside the goal post. In the 32nd minute, North Macedonian captain Ristovski made a big mistake and Bruno took advantage of it and scored a fine goal.
Bruno took advantage of Ristovsky’s wrong pass to snatch the ball from Macedonia and gave a good pass to Ronaldo. Ronaldo came close to the goal, but instead of shooting, he again gave the ball to Bruno. Bruno then scored to give his team a 1-0 lead. Jota also missed the goal before half time, but his team was ahead.
Jota and Bruno scored the second goal:
At the start of the second half also, the North Macedonians looked in good form, but later Jota broke into their defense and snatched the ball and made an excellent pass to Bruno. Bruno scored the best goal for the second time to give his team a 2-0 lead, which proved decisive.
