Joao Cancelo should only be able to play in games when the TV watershed starts after producing utter filth for Portugal against Azerbaijan tonight.

The Manchester City defender/false-full-back/midfielder pulled off a disgusting double nutmeg in the first half of the World Cup qualifier.

Pressed on the touchline, Cancelo skilfully slotted the ball through the winger’s legs and sent him to the shops for a loaf of bread and some milk.

But the former Juventus man wasn’t done there with his pannas. After the slight contact from the frustrated forward player, Cancelo played on and decided to claim another victim.

 

 

The second nutmeg may well have been the better one. Cancelo flicked the ball from one foot to the other and megged another opponent in a full on FIFA Street sequence.

And as we see in another angle, he actually played the ball into the path of teammate Bernardo Silva to set up a Portugal attack down the right.

 

 

This was just five minutes into the fixture and Cancelo was out there taking liberties.

Without the suspended Cristiano Ronaldo after the removal of his shirt following his winner against the Republic of Ireland, Portugal went 1-0 up courtesy of a sensational volley from Bernardo Silva.

The City midfielder snuck in at the far post to get on the end of a Bruno Fernandes and displayed a ridiculous level of technique to open the scoring.

 

 

Andre Silva made it 2-0 minutes later with his tenth goal in 13 World Cup qualifying matches and his 18th in 45 games for the national team on the whole.
