How Darwin Nunez fared in Uruguay’s loss to Portugal?
Darwin Nunez started in Uruguay’s 2-0n defeat to Portugal in the World Cup Group H game.
To put it simply, Nunez didn’t give his greatest performance. His numbers are appalling: 29 touches, 13 turnovers, 0 aerial duels won (4 tried), 0 crosses finished (2 attempted), 1 shot.
In the 72nd minute, the Liverpool striker was substituted.
Here are some opinions from football fans regarding Darwin’s performance.
Niklaus Mikaelson: “35-year-old Luis Suarez is better that Darwin Nunez”
JP: “Darwizzy pocketed by 39-year-old Pepe”
Apache: “Darwin forgets he has a ball at his feet midway through carrying it he needs to donate his brain to science when he dies”
Patron: “Facundo Pellistri has been more of a direct threat in 5 mins than Liverpool’s £100m Darwin Núñez has been for the whole ga
Rory Smith: “Takes some doing to make a team that has Fede Valverde, the most in-form midfielder on the planet, and Darwin Nuñez, a being of pure, uncut chaos, in it quite this boring.”
Ex-Red Luis Suarez was introduced in the second half and had a big chance to score in the 78th minute but hit the side-netting.
The defeat leaves Uruguay in fourth place in their group with just one point. They must beat Ghana on Friday and hope South Korea doesn’t win against Portugal.
