‘So happy he stayed’, ‘man’s a wizard’ – Man City Fans praise Bernardo Silva as Portugal cruise to victory


Bernardo Silva was on target as Portugal beat Azerbaijan 3-0 in Baku to retake top spot in World Cup European Qualifying Group A.

The City midfielder started for Fernando Santos’s side alongside Etihad colleagues Ruben Dias and Joao Cancelo.

And in what was an impressive all-round performance by the visitors, Bernardo struck on 26 minutes to open the scoring, spectacularly volleying home from Bruno Fernandes’ pass.

Within five minutes a dominant Portugal had doubled their advantage.

Fernandes was the provider once again, as his cross was helped back by Diego Jota allowing Andre Silva to apply the finish.

And a fine night’s work for Portugal was sealed 12 minutes from time when Jota added a third goal with Bernardo then replaced by Otavio.

The victory leaves Portugal top of Group A with 13 points from five games.

Second placed Serbia, who have 10 points, play away to the Republic of Ireland later tonight.

Man City fans, then, were all over Twitter praising Bernardo Silva for his display. Here’s what some of them had to say on Twitter…
