Watch: Man Utd’s Bruno Fernandes pulls off brilliant nutmeg on Kovacic
Manchester United‘s Bruno Fernandes has picked up where he left off last season with a brilliant performance in Portugal’s 4-1 win over Croatia.
Fernandes joined United from Sporting Lisbon in January and made an immediate impact, registering 12 goals and eight assists in his first 22 appearances.
The 25-year-old returned to action on Saturday, helping his country make a successful start to their UEFA Nations League campaign.
He provided the assist for Joao Cancelo’s opener before second-half goals from Diogo Jota, Joao Felix and Andre Silva completed a comfortable win for Fernando Santos’ side.
Fernandes also came up against Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic and showed great footwork to put the ball through his opponents legs.
