Huga Almeida and Liedson brought victory to Portugal with a goal each in Wednesday’s friendly match against China.
This win was important for Portugal’s World Cup preparations as the month of June edges closer.
A Seleccao’s 2-0 win over the Chinese was not convincing once again. Whereas they dominated the play, they also should have scored more goals and entertained better.
Unfortunately for Cristiano Ronaldo fans, there was even less excitement as the Real Madrid number 9 came off the field just before the end of the first half. At least, the captain had time to provide the assist for Hugo Almeida’s 36th minute opener.
Liedson then stepped in and eventually put his name on the scoring sheet right at the end of the match to round up Portugal’s victory at the Estadio Cidaded de Coimbra against China.
That marked A Seleccao’s sixth consecutive win. It was also a nice way to celebrate their brand new kits which they wore yesterday for the first time ever.
