Portugal Crushes Sweden 5-2! Bruma Shines in Ronaldo’s Absence

Portugal crushed Sweden 5-2 in a friendly match, even though some key players, including Cristiano Ronaldo, were missing. The game was played at the Estadio Dom Afonso Henriques in Guimaraes, and things got interesting with Bruma wearing the legendary number 7 jersey usually reserved for Ronaldo.

Portugal dominated from the start

Sweden tried to hang on early, but Portugal just kept pushing for goals. Rafael Leao got things going in the 24th minute with a powerful shot, and Matheus Nunes quickly followed up with a solo effort to make it 2-0. This showed just how much talent Portugal has beyond their star players.

Bruno Fernandes, another key player, stepped up before halftime.

He scored a goal and continued to lead the team’s attack from midfield. Even without Ronaldo, Portugal’s offense kept clicking, and Bruma was a big part of that, stepping up to fill the void.

Bruma’s big moment came in the second half

He capitalized on a chance created by Fernandes to score another goal and put Portugal even further ahead. Sweden tried to fight back with some late goals, but Portugal stayed in control with Goncalo Ramos adding another one for good measure.

In the end, Portugal’s victory was never really in doubt

Bruma’s performance was a highlight, but it also showed how strong Portugal’s entire squad is. With key players like Ronaldo coming back for their next game against Slovenia, Portugal looks unstoppable! Coach Roberto Martinez must be happy with his team’s dominance, and Bruma’s performance is a great sign for the future of Portuguese football!
