Bruno Fernandes has praised his Portugal teammate Diogo Jota on Instagram after he scored his nations second goal in their 3-1 win over Turkey in their World Cup Qualifying semi-final.

Jota has 19 goals for Liverpool this season in all competitions and he added to his tally for Portugal with a fine header from Fernandes' cross as he powered his side into a two-goal lead on the 42nd minute.

Portugal and Jota are now one win away from securing their spot at the World Cup in Qatar and they will face North Macedonia in the Play-Off final after they shocked the world with a 1-0 win over European Champions Italy.

Jota wrote on Instagram, as translated from Portuguese: " Let’s go @portugal. We count on your support for the grand finale. Towards Qatar "

Fernandes responded, also translated from Portuguese: "This head doesn’t fail"

Jota started for Portugal in the vital game alongside Portuguese legend Cristiano Ronaldo in a forward two. The duo are likely to start again against North Macedonia on Tuesday, March 29.
