Gary Neville and Ian Wright have given their verdict on Chelsea transfer target Rafael Leao following Portugal’s 6-1 win over Switzerland in the World Cup last 16.
“I really like him,” Neville told ITV after Portugal’s victory over the Swiss as Fernando Santos’ side set up a quarter-final against Morocco on Saturday.
“I liked him when he came on in that first game [against Ghana], he gave them more balance in those wide areas. He’s been used as a sub [again] tonight.
“[His goal was] a bit strange because you’d thought there had been a deflection. But it was a brilliant effort into that far corner.”
Wright added: “You know what it was as well? How dynamic he was.
“He blast past the defender and then the composure to calm himself down and whip it into that far corner – it’s a beautiful goal.”
