One hopefully for the future. How to pronounce Fernandes? The two commentators on FIFA 20 pronounce it totally different. Tyler ends on Ďezí while the other one end on something like Ďeshí
As a Portuguese resident for many years, I lean confirm that itís pronounced Fernandeszh. Think fernands but with a bit of a zhusz as the end.
Gomes is the same, it isnít Gomez it rhymes with homes.
Brazilian Portuguese is very very different.
Hugo is pronounced Oogo.

I think he did, not half as annoying as his habit of pronouncing Totti as "toe-tty" though
