Greetings to all sports fans! We are pleased to offer you an online broadcast of the match between Portugal and Sweden as part of the tournament Friendly Matches (National Teams) – 2024, Friendly Matches.

The meeting starts on March 21, 2024

March 21 (Reuters) – Portugal beat Sweden 5-2 in a friendly on Thursday as head coach Roberto Martinez rested Cristiano Ronaldo and several other key players in preparation for the European Championships in Germany starting in June.

“It was a very important test for us.

We worked on defensive concepts, I really liked the new units, the spirit and dedication were very good. But there are other concepts that we need to work on and improve,” Martinez said in an interview with Portuguese television RTP.
Portugal, which stormed into the Euro 2024 final by winning all 10 qualifying matches, took a three-goal lead in the first half thanks to strikes from Rafael Leao, Matheus Nunez and Bruno Fernandes.

Leao opened the scoring in the 24th minute with a brilliant strike into the top corner following a deflection after Bernardo Silva burst into the area and fired a shot off the post.
In the 33rd minute, Manchester City midfielder Nunez burst through the Swedish defense before firing a low shot just inside the right post to extend the locals’ lead against Guimarães, before Fernandes fired home from close range after Nelson Semedo’s cross in the final game half.

In the 24th minute, Portuguese striker Rafael Leau opened the scoring in the match.

He was assisted by Bernardo Silva. In the 33rd minute, Portugal midfielder Matheus Nunes scored the second goal against the visitors. Bernardo Silva provided the second assist of the match. In the 45th minute, midfielder Bruno Fernandes made the score 3:0 with a pass from defender Nelson Semedo. In the 57th minute, Portuguese midfielder Bruma scored the fourth goal for the hosts.

Gonçalo Ramos scored the fifth goal against Sweden in the 61st minute from a pass from Nelson Semedo.

In the 90th minute, Swedish striker Håkan Nilsson set the final score in the match.

“Cristiano’s role in the national team is always the same, it practically does not change. It’s the leadership he has and how important he is. When we go to play somewhere, we always hear: “This is Cristiano, this is Cristiano!” And this also takes some of the pressure off us, because it is Ronaldo who takes upon himself all the pressure put on the team.

If the team doesn’t win, everything falls on Cristiano. His role is very important, it has always been this way since he joined the national team. Ronaldo is a true leader in the dressing room. This is important for us. We must continue to help him break records and, if possible, achieve more together,” Pagliña was quoted as saying by A Bola.
