Ronaldo’s only post on the game was a post on Instagram at kick-off time urging his teammates to stay in quarantine and they turned out to be more than on par with the task.
William Carvalho could have given the home side the lead in the first few minutes, but his header came back off a post and bounced to safety and the Swedish defense struggled to cope with Portugal’s pace and precision.
Silva opened the goal in the 21st minute when Portugal recaptured the ball in the middle of the field and quickly countered. Jota shot a precise pass to Silva in the penalty area to get a perfect finish for the first time.
Marcus Berg almost equalized Sweden with a powerful shot that hit the post. The more the Swedes attacked, the more vulnerable they were to Portugal’s lightning-fast counter-attacks.
Jota made it into the scorers list just before the break and hit Joao Cancelo’s cross from the right corner to make it 2-0. In the 71st minute, he achieved an excellent third place with a solo run and a shot.
Sweden coach Janne Andersson will miss his side’s next Nations League game against Croatia after receiving his second yellow card of the tournament. The 57-year-old is frustrated by the referee decisions that have been made against his team.
With 10 points from four games, Portugal is the best Group 2 in League A due to the goal difference ahead of France, which Croatia defeated 2-1 in Zagreb. The Swedes are bottom of the table after four defeats in a row.
