Written By Lara Silva

Bruno Fernandes scored the 2 goals against North Macedonia on Tuesday night in Porto’s Estadio do Dragao, ensuring Portugal a 2022 FIFA World Cup spot. The Portuguese player scored at 32′ in the first half and at 65′ in the second half, defeating North Macedonia 2-0.

This will be the eighth time Portugal makes it to a World Cup and the sixth in a row. Portugal played in 1966, 1986, 2002, 2006, 2010, 2014, and 2018.

Portugal’s manager Fernando Santos told the press in Porto:

“I have already won two competitions and I dream a lot of winning a third. I have to congratulate the players for the fantastic attitude they had. In the first 10 minutes, we couldn’t get it right, I said that this North Macedonia team knew how to play. It was not what was thought of them.”

Bruno Fernandes said:

“This game will stay in our memory because we made it to the World Cup. It was a very important match, the fans were impeccable. The atmosphere was spectacular today – people realized what we needed”.

Last week, Portugal eliminated Turkey in the UEFA World Cup playoff seminal final defeating them 3-1 in Porto on Thursday. Otavio, Diogo Jota, and Matheus Nunes score the three goals.
