Sweden vs Portugal extended highlights UEFA Nations League

Watch the full Sweden vs Portugal extended highlights video on FootyArea™ below now.

The best viewing was to be found at the Friends Arena, Solna, where Portugal did enough to see off Sweden in the UEFA Nations League.

Sweden started the game brightly and should have taken an early lead through Marcus Berg.

Portugal was able to quickly wrestle control from Sweden after Gustav Svensson was sent off after receiving a second yellow card.

Portugal went on to claim a 2-0 victory after Cristiano Ronaldo netted his 100th international goal.

Ronaldo scored both goals: the first goal, which was his landmark 100th goal, was a superb, swerving free-kick into the top left corner.

Ronaldo came close to opening the scoring on the 40th minute but saw his brilliant effort palmed away by Robin Olsen.

Portugal struck the bar in the in the 61st minute when Bruno Fernandes latched onto a cross from Guerreiro in the 6 yard box.

Ronald claimed a second with a clean curling effort into the right corner in the 72nd minute.

The result saw Portugal rise to the top of the UEFA Nations League group 3 with two wins from two games.

While Sweden fall to the bottom of the group with their second defeat in two games.

João Felix who had looked lively all night almost had the chance to make it three in the 85th minute.

The attacker mistimed a tap-in at the back post following a brilliant cross from Diogo Jota.

Portugal created a lot of chances but we’re wasteful infront of goal, especially with João Felix missing so many chances.
