Bruno Fernandez took his club to the top of Group H on Tuesday with six points after scoring two incredible goals. In the 54th minute of the game, he netted the game’s first goal. Cristiano Ronaldo, a prominent soccer player from Portugal, tried a header on Fernandez’s strike, which raised questions about the goal.
Portugal was awarded a penalty in the 93rd minute of play when an Uruguayan touched in an unintentional handball. Bruno skillfully scored a second goal after taking the penalty.
Whether or not Ronaldo touched the ball before it went into the goal is debatable. Fernandez cited the goal following the VAR review. Since the start of the 2020–21 season, when Ronaldo left Juventus and unexpectedly returned to Old Trafford, the two Portuguese players have played together for Manchester United.
Due to the heated interview, CR7 gave to Pierce Morgan, which raises many concerns regarding the club’s management of its players, Manchester United is going through a difficult period. Ronaldo wasn’t the only player to criticise United’s leadership.
Ibrahimovic Zlatan, who departed United in 2018, also voiced criticism of the team, saying they have a “very ghetto mindset.” Former United manager Jose Mourinho spoke of the same problem.
Ten Hag expects that when United players like Rashford, Bruno, Casemiro, and Varane perform admirably in the Qatar World Cup, United’s condition will improve, and it will rise to the top of the Premier League standings.
With 14 points, United is now ranked fifth in the top league. The club has struggled in previous seasons against illustrious clubs like Liverpool, Manchester City, etc.
