Bruno Fernandes (7/10)
Lucid, the Manchester United player made two magnificent assists for Joao Félix (78th) and Rafael Leao (80th) in the second half. Before that, with much less space, he failed to create danger and even died in the second half. He has to do more throughout a game.
Bernardo Silva (7)
As a free spirit in the midfield, he was technically quite exceptional for a large part of the match. His game intelligence will greatly help Portugal in this kind of match. He was the only one to float during the weak moments of the Seleçao.
Holy Mohammed (7)
Ajax’s leading striker at the start of the season (4 UCL goals) has evolved… left runner with a 5-3-2 on this meeting. His power allowed him to win his duels in the first period and above all allowed him to hurt with two full-axis acceleration (55th, 72nd). He continues with a huge overflow which offers the equalizer to Ayew (73rd).
Cristiano Ronaldo (6.5)
“CR7” himself obtained a penalty (perhaps generous) in order to open his counter as well as the score in favor of Portugal (65th). Before that, he did not complete a good opportunity (10th) and missed his header (13th). He also scored a disallowed goal for a slight foul on Djiku (31st). Rather voluntary in the game.
Joao Felix (6.5)
He brings the score to 2-1, with a nice stung ball full of lucidity (78th). The Atlético player is a talent apart, participated in the game, but he lacked success on his actions in the first period, in particular on a full axis recovery (28th). The infernal Rafael Leao (entered for the last quarter of an hour of play) threatens his playing time.
André Ayew (6)
It was the left-hander trained at OM who equalized, on the lookout for a cross from Kudus (73rd). From the start of the match, he acted as an axial point of support for his teammates when recovering the ball. Applied but not shiny either.
Aligned to the left of boss Ruben Dias in the central hinge, the defensive midfielder of PSG was solid in aerial duels and on opponents’ deep balls. However, he lets out Kudus’ cross on Ayew’s goal (73rd). He is threatened by Pepe…
Diogo Costa (4)
The Portuguese goalkeeper can’t do much about the Ghanaian goals (73rd, 89th) and didn’t have to stop. However, he was feverish in the second half and could have taken a goal gag after putting the ball in front of him after added time.
João Cancelo (3)
A surprisingly catastrophic performance from the Manchester City player. In his right lane, he could have done better technically in the first period, then he missed everything when he returned from the locker room. Before getting a hole on the 2nd Ghanaian goal (89th). Shocking.
