Who needs Nuno Gomes?
Captain Simao was crucial in the two Portugal goals. For Meireles' goal Simao was in the area, passed it to Meireles who was on his left side. Simao again for Almeida's 2nd goal, 3rd Portugal goal in the game!! Almeida now 2 goals in 1 game!! Not even the 30th minute yet!! Party of goals!!

Simao made the 3 assists! Is it a coincidence that without CR9 Portugal is winning by 3-0? Portugal playing 4-4-2 not a 4-3-3 like in the first games under Queiroz.

Second half- complete change of the lineup. Captain Simao out, Tiago out, Ricardo Carvalho replaced by Rolando. Even goalkeeper Eduardo was replaced with Moreira. It is Moreira's first international cap!!
