Manchester United vs Chelsea on display as holders Portugal took on Croatia in a Nations League game last night.

The midfielder ran the show as Portugal made light work of Croatia at the Estadio do Dragao.

Man United fans especially loved it when the Portuguese absolutely embarrassed Chelsea’s player of the season Mateo Kovacic with a nifty little nutmeg.

The current European champions didn’t let the absence of star player Cristiano Ronaldo affect them one bit and were unlucky not to be ahead early in the game as they struck the post thrice.

Though, Joao Cancelo was soon able to put Portugal ahead with a cracking goal before the lead was doubled by Wolves man Diogo Jota.

Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix added a third to make sure Portugal went home with all 3 points.

Dinamo Zagreb forward Bruno Petkovic scored the only goal for Croatia in stoppage time but even the little happiness from the consolation goal was short lived as Andre Silva added a fourth for Portugal.
