A number of fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Joao Moutinho's performance in Portugal's 3-0 win over Luxembourg in Euro 2020 qualifying.

The Wolves ace was named in the starting XI by Fernando Santos as the reigning European champions locked horns with the steadily improving Duchy side at the Estadio Jose Alvalade.

 

Moutinho played 90 minutes in the ultimately routine win, being substituted late on as Wolves teammate Ruben Neves took his place in a game which saw national talisman Cristiano Ronaldo move one strike away from his 700th career goal.

Here is some of the social media reaction to the £100,000-per-week (Spotrac) ace's display:

Manchester City's Bernardo Silva opened the scoring for Portugal in the first half before Ronaldo chipped over opposition goalkeeper Anthony Moris in the 65th minute, and Valencia's Goncalo Guedes made it three just before full time.

Portugal remain second in Group B, five points behind Ukraine, but four points clear of Serbia in third, as reported by BBC Sport.
