An individual assessment made by O JOGO to the players of the non-private Portuguese team against Qatar (3-0).
Diogo Costa 6
The announced debut. Only at 43″ did he have to bend his knees to easily catch Elamin’s timid shot. Very calm night.
Diogo Dalot 7
He worked more like a winger, crossed and shot over and over again (at 41″, the shot went close to the target) and it was with this attitude that he led many of the attacking moves of the selection, like high-speed convoy. At half-time he moved to the flank. left, continued to spread and create danger and even scored, but there had been a naughty little hand in the middle.
José Fonte 7
Unblemished, at the pace of the obligation to keep your area of influence free of danger. The best was saved for the start of the second half, when he successfully reloaded and made it 2-0. The first goal ever in the national team, which was already well deserved!
A headshot (12 “), after a corner, immediately served to show that things back here were under control, in this appearance, once again, the central defender.
Nuno Mendes 6
A constant coming and going, safe to recover and with some exaggerations to attack, especially in the timing of releasing the ball. He tried to serve André Silva and Cristiano and… he rested at half-time.
