However, before a meeting with Azerbaijan early next week, Santos and company. managed to oversee a more comfortable victory this time.

Goals from Andre Silva and Otavio ensured that with minutes to go at the Nagyerdei Stadion, Portugal held a 2-1 lead.

Then, with 88 minutes on the clock, the aforementioned Bruno Fernandes secured the result.

Moving up to the penalty spot, the talented midfielder conceded home confidently, completing the score in a 3-1 victory for the Selecao.

However, Fernandes’ latest spike from 12 yards has led to an interesting point on social media, surrounding the Manchester United star and new teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.

The last 18 months, of course, have seen the former take responsibility for penalty duties at Old Trafford, and with good results.

However, after Ronaldo’s return to the Red Devils was made official early last weekend, it has already been widely suggested that the veteran attacker will likely take over the shots from the Manchester point of view during the upcoming seasons.

As a result, it came as a little surprise to see various outlets highlighting the fact that in the international break CR7 and Ronaldo endured contrasting fortunes from 12 yards.

While the latter made no mistake against Qatar tonight, Ronaldo tweaked his lines just a few days ago, seeing his own penalty saved by young Irishman Gavin Bazunu.
