'Made my mouth water': Bruno Fernandes makes Man United proud with classy Euro performance

Bruno Fernandes has become the darling of the Portuguese media after his incredible performance in Portugal's 2-1 win over the Czech Republic in the Euro 2024.

Bruno neither scored nor assisted but he was a dominant performer throughout. He played the entire 90 minutes and created two great goalscoring chances; unfortunately, his teammates failed to bury them.

The Manchester United captain also made two attempts on goal but could not find the back of the net.

Fernandes won the ball back seven times and also beat his opponents in one-on-one duels four times. Here are some reactions from Portuguese media as they could not stop praising him.

Mais Futebol: "Feels comfortable making risky decisions, because that’s how he usually plays. The Manchester United midfielder was just like himself in the European debut. Bruno Fernandes dazzled with sensational passes that neither Raphael Leao nor Cristiano Ronaldo did not take advantage of. It made my mouth water for the next games."

Observador: "His style of play (constantly taking risks to collect the highest rewards) does not fit easily into low blocks, like Czechia. Being one of the players on earth with the least patience to struggle, he tried everything: boards, shots, passes, crosses."

SIC: "It was not as influential as usual and yet the production of the attack was very dependent on his right foot. At 25′ he provided Leao with a cross that only did not give a goal by millimetres and six minutes later he left Cristiano on the edge of the festivities, only denied by Stanek’s great intervention."
