'If Bruno was in a Klopp team...' - Man United fans stunned by Bruno Fernandes display for Portugal

Man United fans were wowed by Bruno Fernandes’ “insane” performance for Portugal as they completed their perfect qualification campaign against Iceland.

The 29-year-old opened the scoring with a thunderous outside-the-box effort in the first half and Braga’s Ricardo Horta doubled the lead at the Estadio Jose Alvalade in the 2-0 win.

Roberto Martínez’s side won all 10 of their Euro 2024 qualifiers, scoring 36 goals and conceding just twice.

Fernandes, amid unpredictable form for Man United, has often outshined even Cristiano Ronaldo for his nation with frequent prolific displays, and his outing against Iceland was no different.

Fans have taken to social media to hail their midfield maestro, but some remain baffled that he can’t replicate this at Old Trafford consistently.

This supporter has urged Fernandes to ignore Erik ten Hag’s advice after his “more composed” displays for his nation.

This fan was in awe of his “insane” record for Portugal and how much he helps out Ronaldo.

This Man United supporter dubbed Fernandes Portugal’s “main player” and is currently one of the sport’s very best.

Another fan was concerned by Fernandes’ lack of form for United compared to when he plays for his country and urged the boss to build the team around him.

One fan believes he could fit into any team in Europe and remained “clueless” as to why he opted to extend his stay in Manchester.

This supporter is adamant that if Fernandes played for an elite-level coach, he’d have even stronger numbers.

This United fan couldn’t help but have a dig at Ronaldo and dubbed Fernandes the “face of Portugal”.

One fan hailed his excellent recent form for club and country and is simply wondering what he could do next.
