Bruno Fernandes, a midfielder for Manchester United, scored both goals for Portugal in their 2-0 victory over Uruguay on Monday at the World Cup.
The manager of Manchester United, Erik ten Hag, has shown faith in Bruno Fernandes to add more goals to his game. After the midfielder scored twice for Portugal during their 2-0 win over Uruguay on Monday, he could soon be repaying that faith on his return to Old Trafford. Bruno Fernandes scored twice for Portugal during their 2-0 win over Uruguay.
With their victory over their opponents from South America, Portugal secured their spot in the round of 16. Fernandes played an important role in the victory for United, as the player ended up scoring twice in the second half to clinch all three points for his team.
After Cristiano Ronaldo tried to claim that he had gotten his head on the end of Fernandes' cross to the far post, there was some initial controversy surrounding the opening goal. The goal was scored by Cristiano Ronaldo. The 37-year-old man wheeled away in ecstasy, but his joy was cut short when replays revealed that he had not gotten a touch on the ball at any point during the play.
After Portugal were given a penalty kick for handball, Fernandes coolly placed his penalty kick into the bottom corner, leaving no doubt about who had scored the team's second goal.
Despite the fact that United have struggled to score goals from the center of the field this season, the club's faithful will be overjoyed to see the 28-year-old finally find the back of the net. However, Ten Hag was confident that Fernandes would continue to perform well in front of the net after discussing the topic earlier in the season.
He stated, "Yeah, but I think Bruno is playing really good this season, so I can see in that fact, he can produce more goals and assists." Bruno is having a really good season. But I believe he's often in the line of goal, and he's playing a massive role in a lot of different moments of football for us: in building up attacks, creativity, movement, but also in transitions, on both sides, in the defensive transitions he's magnificent and doing a really good job, so I'm really happy with his performances.
Ten Hag will certainly be hoping that his midfielders can carry their goalscoring momentum with them after the World Cup comes to a close on December 18. Casemiro scored the winning goal for Brazil against Switzerland, so Ten Hag will certainly be hoping that his midfielders can carry their goalscoring momentum with them.
