Man Utd star Bruno Fernandes was hailed as the ‘best in the world’ after a HAT-TRICK of assists as Portugal recorded their biggest ever win

BRUNO FERNANDES was hailed as the “best in the world” by Manchester United fans as he delivered a HAT-TRICK of assists in Portugal’s record win.

The 29-year-old midfielder even managed to get himself on the scoresheet as his country beat Luxembourg 9-0 in their Euro 2024 qualifier this evening.

Fernandes converted the ball in the 12th minute at the Estadio Algarve when he crossed the ball with the outside of his foot onto the head of Goncalo Inácio, opening the scoring.

Shortly before the break at the end of the first half, he once again acted as a provider for Inacio.

And in the second period he picked up his third assist by firing a beautiful ball over the goal line, allowing Liverpool’s Diogo Jota to run on and make it 5-0.

Fernandes then added his name to the flood of goals by scoring the eighth goal in the nine-goal defeat from close range.

Despite his and United’s rollercoaster start to the Premier League season, his incredible form has continued on the international stage.

Thanks to his four assists and three goals in six games, no player has been directly involved in more goals in European Championship qualification than Fernandes.

And following clips of his recent outstanding performance for Portugal, United fans were quick to take to Twitter to salute their maestro.

“The best in the world,” declared one, while another said he was “running the show.”


Another called him “Magnifico”, while another United fan described the ace as a “creative machine”.

The result was also the biggest victory in Portugal’s history.

And if they win at home against second-placed Slovakia on October 13 and Luxembourg don’t win away in Iceland, they will qualify for next summer’s European Championships in Germany with three games to go.
