Why Bruno Must  Keep His Playing Form To Help Ronaldo Thrive At Man United

Bruno Fernandes' performance in the match between Azerbaijan and Portugal goes to show that he can be a very deadly player to play against. Bruno has already shown that he can score goals, however, with the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo in Manchester United, many sports fans have wondered if Manchester United players can give Ronaldo the type of passes that will enable him to shine.

During the match between Azerbaijan and Portugal, Bruno Fernandes' performance gave football lovers a glimpse of what might become a constant feature of Bruno Fernandes' style of play in this season's club football. During the match between Azerbaijan and Portugal, Ronaldo was not part of the Portuguese team but Bruno Fernandes stepped up his game and helped Portugal to secure a 3-0 victory.

One of the things which were noticed about Fernandes' style of play in the game was that instead of always forcing his way into the Azerbaijan box, he was content with remaining just outside the box and providing top-notch crosses for his teammates to attack and score goals. During the match, Fernandes had a hand in Portugal's first and second goals.

His pinpoint deliveries into the box were a joy to watch. In Manchester United, Paul Pogba is a brilliant passer of the ball but he is normally too far from the opponent's box to cross the ball for the attackers to score. Pogba's passes often come from deep and he loops it above the defenders, enabling the likes of Greenwood and Fernandes to score goals.

However, with the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, someone like Bruno Fernandes must help out Luke Shaw and Wan-Bissaka when it comes to crossing the balls from the flank. Ronaldo will score more goals if he receives long passes from Pogba and powerful crosses from Bruno Fernandes from the left and right wings.

In the match between Azerbaijan and Portugal, Bruno Fernandes applied the strategy of willingly drifting to the wings to deliver wicked crosses into the box. The resulting positive effect of this behavior is that instead of waiting on the left-back and the right-back to cross balls which lacks in quality, Bruno Fernandes took it upon himself to cross precise balls into the box.

If Fernandes continues the same playing style he showcased against Azerbaijan, Ronaldo and Cavani will score so many goals in the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League. Cavani and Ronaldo are exceptional with their heads. However, both players will need a lot of quality balls delivered to them constantly and there is no better person to do the job than Bruno Fernandes.
