(Video) Diogo Jota assists for Portugal after lovely left-footed cross and helps guide them to the World Cup

Posted by

We normally see him on the other end but Diogo Jota provided a brilliant left-footed cross to double Portugal’s lead against North Macedonia.

It was a must win game for the Portuguese as they tried to book their place in Qatar for the World Cup finals and our man helped his side with a perfect pass.

Picking the ball up just inside the Macedonian half, our No.20 carried the ball forward and delivered a delectable pass to Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes.

It was a brace for the Old Trafford man but all the plaudits will be going to our attacker for the second goal of the night.

It’s great that this was such a positive international break for the 25-year-old and now he can return to Merseyside with the safe knowledge that he will be competing at the World Cup this winter.

Fingers crossed his form can carry through into what will be an immensely important final two months of our campaign.
