Portugal wins thanks to a spectacular international display from a Barcelona duo

Portugal wins thanks to a spectacular international display from a Barcelona duo

While players can benefit greatly from the international break, teams such as Barcelona may find it concerning.

Such breaks are frequently accompanied by injuries, which Barcelona would prefer not to have to deal with just now.

 

But in Portugal, the stars were shining brightly this time.

Roberto Martinez called up forward Joao Felix, age 23, and fullback Joao Cancelo, age 29.

They were a much-needed call-up, and they gave an excellent performance.

 

Portuguese Authority.

Both Barcelona players made an impression in their most recent match against Bosnia-Herzegovina, as SPORT highlighted. Felix contributed to multiple goals, and Cancelo showed off a fresh side to his game.

In the end, both players left the game having scored one goal apiece.

 

Wonderful Felix.

Felix himself scored the final goal of the evening, demonstrating that his contributions did not end there. Felix demonstrated his excellent technique by sprinting into a great position in front of the opponent’s goal.

With a relatively easy touch of the ball, he set himself up so that he could score Portugal’s fifth goal with the outside of his right foot.

 

The Portuguese dominance in Zenica was amply justified by the score of 5-0.

Originally won by Joao Felix, the first goal was scored by Cristiano Ronaldo from a penalty.

After that, through a defense-splitting through-ball, the Barcelona forward assisted Ronaldo again for the second goal.

Take Control.

 

However, in Joao Cancelo’s case, the fullback chose to play on the left this time.

Cancelo demonstrated the effectiveness of the option that was previously reported to be one that Xavi might use in the future.

 

Cancelo was very noticeable, logging 116 touches to aid in game management and a 93 percent pass accuracy.

Furthermore, he only took one shot the entire game, and it was a strike.

A misplaced shot by Ronaldo, coming in from the left flank, allowed the ball to go to Cancelo, who struck it with enough force and accuracy to see it fly high and into the top corner of the Bosnian goal.

It’s interesting to note that Felix and Cancelo played on the same flank in this encounter.

The duo looked dangerous, with Joao Felix as the primary left-winger and the fullback operating from the left.

 

 

 

It is now anticipated that the Barcelona players will soon reassemble with Xavi and the starting squad.

Now that Portugal’s qualifying for the 2024 European Championship has been assured following their successful international break, all focus will be on assisting FC Barcelona in overcoming their own significant obstacles in the near future.
