UEFA Nations League – Poland 2-3 Portugal

The UEFA Nations League returns for its second round of games, and while the Netherlands record a result that should give them a much-needed boost in morale, Germany continue their slump.

England too have a lot to be proud of, after they held Croatia, who are effectively the second-best team in the world. Here we round up the best games in the second round of the Nations League:

Portugal were without captain Ronaldo, but the 2016 European champions overcame a dogged Poland side to win 3-2 in the Nations League tie.

Genoa’s in-form striker Piatek had given Poland the lead before Andre Silva, a Kamil Glik own goal and Bernardo Silva struck for the visitors.

The Manchester City winger scored a stunning goal when he picked the ball up around 40 yards out from goal before bursting forward and curling a finish from the edge of the box into the bottom corner.

Blaszczykowski converted Poland’s second with 13 minutes remaining, but they were unable to find an equaliser against the European champions, who have won both of their games in League A of the competition.
