Portugal have tuned up nicely for their World Cup opener by defeating Mozambique 3-0 in Johannesburg.
Portugal: 3 (Danny 52â, Hugo Almeida 75â, 83â)
Venue: Bidvest Stadium â Johannesburg, South Africa
The Portuguese shrugged off the loss of winger Nani for the entire tournament by recording a comfortable victory and morale-booster that they needed ahead of Tuesdayâs clash with the Ivory Coast.
Danny hit the target seven minutes after half-time before Hugo Almeida netted a late double to ensure Portugal took a win after having 24 shots on goal.
