Leon Best: Scored only goal of game for Blackburn

Best tapped in at the far post at the Estadio Municipal in Portimao after good work down the left by Fabio Nunes, who was playing against his former club.

The hosts had already hit the post through frontman Anselmo by the team Rovers scored.

Goalkeeper Simon Eastwood was one of a number of half-time substitutions for Blackburn and he was called upon to preserve the visitors' clean sheet in the closing stages, denying Nelsinho in a one-on-one.

Rovers return home from the Algarve on Sunday and their next friendly is against Crewe on Tuesday night.
