International round-up: Fonte's Portugal hit four in friendly win

Jose Fonte

Jose Fonte's Portugal warmed-up for their FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Latvia in style by beating Cyprus 4-0 in a friendly on Saturday.

West Ham United defender Fonte, a UEFA Euro 2016 winner last summer, played the full 90 minutes in Estoril to earn his 23rd cap for Portugal.

The result was never in doubt once Joao Moutinho had fired Fernando Santos' men in front with just three minutes played.

Another goal for Monaco's Moutinho doubled the advantage in the first half, before further goals from Pizzi and Andre Silva rounded off the victory after half time.

Portugal take on Latvia on Friday night, looking for the win which would keep the pressure on Group B leaders Switzerland.

Elsewhere on the international scene, Darren Randolph's Republic of Ireland face Uruguay in a Dublin friendly on Sunday night, while Dan Kemp and England U20 - already qualified for the semi-finals - take on Japan in their final Toulon Tournament group fixture on Sunday afternoon.
