Despite already securing their spot in the tournament with a 3-2 win over Slovakia, Portugal’s manager, Roberto Martinez, fielded a strong starting XI. Fernandes, playing for 79 minutes on foreign soil, showcased his excellence once again.

In a dominant first half for Portugal, the playmaker contributed a goal to their relentless attack. Beyond his scoring prowess, he maintained control of the game with 54 touches, completing 35 of his 43 passes.

Additionally, Fernandes executed four successful long balls and excelled in duels and tackles, winning three and two, respectively.

Bosnia & Herzegovina had no response to Portugal’s superiority, and all five goals were netted before the halftime whistle, preventing further humiliation.

As Manchester United’s captain, Fernandes has been the primary creative force since joining the club from Sporting in 2020.

This season, he has recorded two goals and two assists in 10 appearances, and the Red Devils expect more from their influential leader.

Fernandes has been one of the most active players in the final third of the Premier League this season, with 295 action sequences, setting high expectations for increased goal involvement.

After Portugal’s successful qualification for Euro 2024, fans eagerly anticipate a continuation of his outstanding form.

Fernandes is set to play a pivotal role when Manchester United returns to Premier League action against Sheffield United this weekend, operating from his preferred number 10 position at Bramall Lane.
