Portugal win inaugural UEFA Nations League tournament

Baku, June 10, AZERTAC

Portugal were crowned the first ever UEFA Nations League winners, narrowly edging past the Netherlands with a solitary goal thanks to a classy second half finish by Gonçalo Guedes, according to Euronews.

On a balmy night in Porto, the hosts, helped by a stadium mostly packed with red-shirted Portuguese supporters, deservedly picked up the prize for the inaugural tournament.

And despite a quiet night for superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, largely man marked by Dutch defenders, Portugal recorded 15 shots to just four from the away side.

Ronaldo had the chance to grab the headlines with a late free-kick but saw his attempt go well wide.

It is now two titles in three years for Portugal, adding to their 2016 European Championship win.
