Portugal has humbled Nigeria even without skipper Cristiano Ronaldo 4-0 in Lisbon as they prepare for the World Cup in Qatar.
Portugal dominated the Super Eagles for most of the first half, entirely outplaying the Nigerian team.
It didn’t take long for Portugal to break the deadlock, with Bruno Fernandez scoring a tap in from close range after a through ball from Jao Felix found Diogo Dalot, who faked the goalkeeper into committing himself before excellently finding Bruno Fernandez for the opener.
Portugal came close to doubling their lead on multiple occasions but couldn’t keep their efforts on target.
In the 34th minute, Osayi-Samuel was deemed to have handled the ball in the box and Bruno Fernandez scored his trademark penalty, pushing Uzoho to the wrong direction.
After much changes in personnel from the Portuguese side at half time, Nigeria grew into the game and started to have the ball more as compared to the 29% possession they had in the first half.
However, Emmanuel Dennis missed a penalty in the 81st minute and a chance to reduce the deficit for the Super Eagles as the players surge forward.
21-year-old striker Ramos punished Nigeria for missing the penalty by scoring in the 82nd minute while Joao Mario rounded it up with a fourth goal two minutes later.
