Sanches came on as a sub after 55 minutes and made an immediate impact on the match. After 73 minutes the 21-year-old whipped a free-kick into Scotland's box, Eder heading home to make it 2-0. Helder Costa had put the reigning European champions in front shortly before half-time. Leipzig's Bruma netted Portugal's third with five minutes to go, Steven Naismith scoring a consolation goal for the Scots in injury time.
