Jota under the spotlight

Jota was the main man of the match. He had all the spotlight needed because he changed the outcome. Firstly, Bernardo Silva scored the goal and Jota assisted him. Jota did not want to stop there and decided to score goals. Joao Cancelo gave an assist to Jota and the striker scored an easy goal. 

Second half was indeed on the side of Portugal. Jota scored his second in the second half. Jota was really playing well and won the personal award.

Portugal is in the first place of the group. Currently Cristiano Ronaldo’s team has 10 points. France has exact-same points and the first spot will be played between these two teams. In November, France will visit Portugal and it will be a match for first place. At the same time, Portugal has an away match against Croatia.
