Portugal 3-0 Algeria

Portugal
Portugal's win over Algeria was their first victory in four games

Goncalo Guedes scored twice to boost his chances of starting at the World Cup as Portugal beat Algeria 3-0 in a friendly in Lisbon.

Cristiano Ronaldo had a goal ruled out for offside before Guedes, who spent last season on loan at Valencia from Paris St-Germain, scored from Bernardo Silva's cushioned header.

Midfielder Bruno Fernandes headed home Ronaldo's cross to double the lead.

Raphael Guerreiro's cross was then headed in by 21-year-old winger Guedes.

European champions Portugal's first match in Russia is against 2010 world champions Spain in Sochi on 15 June (19:00 BST).

Algeria, who reached the knockout stage in 2014, failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 2006.
