Forward Goncalo Guedes staked his claim for a place in Portugal’s starting line-up with two goals in the win over Algeria, who missed out on Russia, at a soggy Stadium of Light in Lisbon.

Guedes fired the European champions ahead from Bernardo Silva’s cushioned header and nodded in the third from Raphael Guerreiro’s cross.
