Result: Portugal ease to win over Norway

Goals from Ricardo Quaresma, Raphael Guerreiro and Eder ease Portugal to a 3-0 friendly victory over Norway.

A Cristiano Ronaldo-less Portugal warmed up for Euro 2016 by beating Norway 3-0 at the Estadio do Dragao this evening.

The talismanic No.7 did not feature because of his Champions League heroics with Real Madrid last night, but his absence was not felt as goals from Ricardo Quaresma, Raphael Guerreiro and Eder did the damage.

It took former Barcelona and Chelsea winger Quaresma 13 minutes to break the deadlock as he cut inside from the left flank and unleashed a curling effort into the top corner of Rune Jarstein's net.

The second goal of the night came after 65 minutes courtesy of Guerreiro, who bent in a free kick from 25 yards out.

Then, the outcome was made safe six minutes later when Joao Mario sent in a low cross that Eder was able to turn in from close range.

Fernando Santos's men return to action this Wednesday against England at Wembley.
