Fernando Santos has summed up the results of Portugal’s 3-1 win against Luxembourg. These were the words of the Portugal head coach – We played extremely amorphous.
About the World Cup 2022 qualifying match, Santos talked to UEFA’s official website.
Per the Portugal head coach: “We played extremely amorphous. I told the players that technique alone is not enough.
“We should be more balanced in terms of intensity. If you rely solely on technique, any opponent will give us trouble. We woke up, added momentum and scored an important goal.”
“We got off to a very slow start. The first half hour was like a friendly, we lacked intensity. [Before half-time], we brought our speed on just once, in the 25th minute, thanks to a brilliant display from Cancelo,” said Santos.
“In the second half, we won all the battles, added intensity, and Luxembourg looked completely different. We could have won by a bigger score,” he added.
