Portugal did a good job regarding the group’s victory in the Nations League. The Czech Republic was eliminated in the first half thanks to two flashes. Cristiano Ronaldo was eager to add to his already staggering number of international goals, but ultimately failed to do so.
The Czechs had held up Spain on the previous match day and were determined to do so again with Portugal now in Lisbon. That intention actually went to the trash after the first half.
A balanced match stunned after half an hour with a shot from Joao Cancelo. Gonzalo Guedes did not want to be inferior and, with a calculated shot, scored 0-2 after 5 minutes, again on a pass from Bernardo Silva.
With 3 new powers after the break, the Czech Republic was less toothless. That dominance was short-lived. Cristiano Ronaldo has been stalking multiple times to boost his total of 117 international goals. But this party did not happen.
