Fernandes has been one of the Premier League's best players since arriving at Manchester United, but hasn't shown it on the international stage yet.

The 26-year-old is prepared to change that however. He scored twice in Wednesday's 4-0 win and managed to double his 'Selecao' scoring tally in one game.

Fernandes opened the scoring in the first half before providing an assist for Cristiano Ronaldo, who made it 2-0 just before half-time.

It was Fernandes' second goal and Portugal's fourth that grabbed the headlines, a lovely effort that left goalkeeper Ofir Marciano rooted to the spot.

Joao Cancelo had added a third moments earlier.

It promises to be a challenging tournament for Fernando Santos' side, having been drawn in the 'Group of Death' alongside France, Germany and Hungary.

Santos told RTP: "The first part, not being extraordinary, was good.

"We did very well in the first 20 minutes, with great intensity in the various moments of play, circulating the ball well and looking for the flanks.

"Then we had a quarter of an hour with less [urgency], but we accelerated towards the end and ended up scoring two goals."

He continued: "In the second I changed things a little, I tried to put one more man next to Ronaldo and two midfielders coming in from the inside, but it didn't work.

"We started to miss a lot of passes and the ball circulation was not so good. There are many things to improve, certainly.

"Now let's rest and calmly prepare for the Euros. This team has a huge will and an excellent team spirit."
