Portugal 4-0 Malta World Cup 2010 Qualifiers – Video Highlights

Portugal made light of the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo to seal a place in the play-offs by thrashing Malta 4-0 in Guimares.

Nani set Portugal on their way with a left-foot drive and further goals from Simao Sabrosa, Miguel Veloso and Edinho saw them clinch second place with 19 points, two points adrift of winners Denmark but one point ahead of Sweden.

The result completed the first stage of a qualifying comeback for Portugal, who had looked down and out at one stage after winning just one of their first five qualifiers.

With World Player of the Year Ronaldo out injured, Portugal relied on another of their wingers, Nani, to drive them forward.
