Cristiano Ronaldo & Bernardo Silva's partnership for Portugal is special

These two guys are on fire right now

Portugal's team is starting to look seriously good.

Prior to their Euro 2016 triumph, the general consensus was that the nation lacked many world-class players aside from Cristiano Ronaldo.

In truth, it was a fair analogy, with Portugal not actually winning a single game in 90 minutes on their route to winning the trophy in 2016.

Eder's goal in extra-time against France in Paris sealed the nation's first major trophy in what as an uninspiring tournament overall.

But three years later - and fresh from winning the inaugural UEFA Nations League - Portugal look like one of the best international teams on the planet.

Ronaldo is still at the peak of his powers, but it's the players around him that have grown in stature.

Bernardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes and Joao Felix as a supporting cast behind the 34-year-old is simply going to be too hot to handle for many teams come Euro 2020.

And it's Ronaldo's partnership with Manchester City star Bernardo that has been particularly devastating in Portugal's last four games against Switzerland, Holland, Serbia and Lithuania.

During that time, the duo have mustered nine goals and five assists between them.

Bernardo has assisted Ronaldo no fewer than four times in that period and it's fair to say they're - right now - the best partnership in international football.

AND AGAIN...

Bernardo brings the sauce, Ronaldo delivers the goals.

And if these two decide to have one of their rare bad games, Fernandes and Felix are waiting in the wings to deliver.

Portugal are overloaded with talent right now.

In midfield, the evergreen Joao Moutinho is still strutting his stuff alongside the likes of Ruben Neves and William Carvalho.

Further back, Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo and Raphael Guerreiro all ooze class, with the dependable Rui Patricio between the posts.

Portugal are going to be a serious problem at Euro 2020.
