Bento - We deserved to win

Published Add your comment

Portugal coach Paulo Bento felt his side deserved their 3-2 victory over Denmark in Lviv, insisting it would have been "unjust" had his side been held to a draw.

Goals from Pepe and Helder Postiga had their team 2-0 ahead but Nicklas Bendtner pulled one back just before half-time and, after Cristiano Ronaldo had missed a couple of straightforward chances, the Arsenal striker scored a second.

Substitute Silvestre Varela snatched a winner three minutes from time and Bento felt that did justice to their performance. "The team were focused throughout and showed real quality," he said.
