Bernardo Silva is proving more and more important for Portugal and he was the difference-maker against Luxembourg on Sunday.
He has displayed his effectiveness for Manchester City once again this season and in the eyes of many fans he was the biggest influence in the Euro 2020 qualifier.
A decisive first-half pass found Bruno Fernandes perfectly, who finished with great accuracy to give Portugal the upper hand, which they retained throughout the rest of the match.

As well as that he also made three key passes, which highlights his importance to his team and meant that he was the topic of conversation ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored his 98th international goal.
One supporter likened Silva to Juan Mata, describing him as a pacier version, while others stated that he is an important presence for his national side, even though he often operates in a different role to the one Pep Guardiola deploys him in.
Here are some of the reactions to his display, and the praise he has received for the influence he possesses.
The only player carrying Portugal is Bernardo Silva! 😊
