With a stronger overall, Portugal quickly equalized the score and overtake, and finally defeated the Polish team. In the absence of Ronaldo, the midfielder Bernardo Silva, who played for Manchester City, performed well and led the team to play a more efficient team. From the performance of this season, the 24-year-old has the potential to become the helmsman of the post C.Ronaldo era leading the Portuguese team.
In this game, the Portuguese sent the “Silva Trident” composed of Bernardo, Rafa and Andre. At the beginning of the game, the three Silva constantly sought cooperation. In the 14th minute, Bernardo Silva made a cross from the right and Rafa Silva missed the ball. After the Polish team lead the game, Bernardo organized the team to fight back. In the 19th minute he went straight to Andre Silva, but the latter hit the goal with his right foot. Since then, the Bernardo have been sent straight to the teammates for many times, but unfortunately they have not been converted into goals.
The opportunity given to his teammates failed to turn into a goal, and Bernardo Silva would also choose to try to break the goal.

Throughout the game, the Portuguese team performed six or seven player positions and Bernardo Silva took the ball and observed the tactics. It is obvious that he is already the absolute tactical core. According to OPTA statistics, Bernardo Silva scored the highest number of scoring opportunities for the Portuguese team in 2018.

In the absence of De Bruyne in the new EPL season, Guardiola gave Bernardo Silva more opportunities, the 24-year-old Portuguese also successfully seized the opportunity, not only from the bench to promote the main force, but also gradually become the key to the big man in the Manchester City. Especially when David Silva and Bernardo Silva are present, although they are not comparable to the power of David Silva + De Bruyne, the young Bernardo is also very good. From the beginning of the doubts, Manchester City fans gradually developed toward the evaluation direction of “43 million pounds can bring Bernardo is simply robbery”.
According to the data of the “Transfer Market” website, only the 24-year-old Bernardo is worth in the Portuguese team, second only to Ronaldo, ranking second in the team. In other words, Bernardo is promising to become the biggest player in Portugal, as C Ronaldo gradually fades out of the national team. In the post C.Ronaldo era, Bernardo Silva, wearing the No. 10 jersey from Portugal, is likely to become the new core of the team.
