Cristiano Ronaldo Nets 699th Career Goal, Portugal Beat Luxembourg 3-0
Portugal continued their winning run during Friday’s UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier against Luxembourg, winning 3-0. Cristiano Ronaldo got his 699th career goal in the win.
Bernardo Silva opened the scoring in the first half, but Luxembourg ended the half as the better team. Ronaldo doubled the lead after the break, and Goncalo Guedes put the final score on the board, stretching Portugal’s winning run to five matches across all competitions.
Ronaldo nearly started things off with a bang, blasting a shot over after some nice dribbling just two minutes into the contest.
Silva and Ronaldo both had penalty shouts turned down in a matter of seconds, and Joao Felix wasted two excellent chances before the hosts took the lead.
Nelson Semedo was a little fortunate to stay in possession after a poor touch, and his deflected pass eventually fell to Silva, who slotted the ball home.
