The high-flying Portuguese side take on Iceland in their final Euro 2024 qualifier this Sunday.
Portugal’s newfound ruthlessness was largely absent as they beat Liechtenstein on Thursday night to extend their winning streak to nine matches. They were robust at the back and barely allowed opposition forwards a look in, but their displays in the attacking third were far from clinical.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 128th international goal in the 46th minute to open the scoring for Portugal. Joao Cancelo’s fine finish just 11 minutes later sealed the deal for Roberto Martinez’s side. But given Liechtenstein’s accreditation, Portugal were expected to drown them in a sea of goals.
However, Portugal were still lacking in the first half and could not find their way around the stubborn defense of their opponents.
Meanwhile, Iceland lost 4-2 to Slovakia in their final Euro 2024 qualifier on Thursday to remain fourth in Group J. Slovakia, who now have 19 points from nine games, qualified for the 2024 European Championship behind Portugal from the tournament. group.
Iceland still have a chance through the UEFA Nations League B play-offs, but they haven’t been nearly as impressive of late. Two of their three wins in nine group games came against lowly Liechtenstein, while the other came against struggling Bosnia and Herzegovina.
