Furthermore, some time ago Bruno Fernandes got another moment and perfectly curled the ball into the bottom corner from the edge of the box. In that way he converted the second and eased the game so much.
The third goal was scored like this: a lovely ball from Fred set Rashford away, and Rashford perfectly placed the ball beyond the reach of Alex Remiro.
After that, young pacey man Daniel James got the ball from Bailey and simply charged with his head down towards goal before slotting into the opposite corner.
Paul Scholes spoke on the performance of the Portuguese:
“Bruno Fernandes has been sensational since the day he signed. Every single game you feel he will score. He’s been a truly terrific signing. He knows where everyone is on the pitch, he has a picture in his head and he is capable of playing the killer pass every time.”
