Nottingham Forest drew 0-0 with Bournemouth at the City Ground – and afterwards, supporters raved about Tobias Figueiredo on Twitter.

The defender was excellent alongside Joe Worrall and showcased the sort of form that people know he is capable of.

Figueiredo arrived at the club from Sporting Lisbon in 2018, turning a loan move permanent after just six months.

He’s endured mixed fortunes during his time on Trentside but currently seems to be in good form.

The Portuguese powerhouse has made 85 appearances in total for the Reds, scoring three goals.

Here is what Forest supporters were saying about the uncompromising centre-back after the clean sheet against Bournemouth.
