Portuguese Abroad: Nuno backs Jota’s Portugal call after beating United; Orlando Sá raises the Standard; Bernardo rescues City; Sousa denied on debut; Silva credited for Everton win; Vieirinha screamer inspires PAOK
Nuno Espírito Santo’s Wolverhampton Wanderers are headed to Wembley as FA Cup semi-finalists after a convincing 2-1 victory over Manchester United on Saturday. Diogo Jota scored one of the goals for Wolves, who are joined in the last four by favourites Manchester City after Bernardo Silva ignited their comeback from 2-0 down at Swansea City.
Elsewhere, Marco Silva secured a huge victory for Everton with a 2-0 win over Chelsea, but there was less fortune for Paulo Sousa who was denied a debut win on the Bordeaux bench by a stoppage time goal. Vieirinha and Orlando Sá lead the goalscoring stories with a screamer and a decisive winner in Greece and Belgium respectively, while there were also goals for Portuguese in Bulgaria, Israel, Holland, Romania, Ukraine and the English Championship.
