Ronaldo and Portugal going through the paces during the warm up with the crucial World Cup qualifier just minutes away. Portugal have picked a strong team for the trip to Luxembourg, with Ronaldo, Diogo Jota and Joao Felix ALL starting.
Bruno Fernandes is suspended after reaching the yellow card limit. Remember, Ronaldo is just SEVEN goals shy of the all-time international scoring record. The Portugal superstar sits on 102 goals for his nation – with only Iran’s Ali Daei ahead of him.
It’s Luxembourg up for Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal tonight in their World Cup qualifier. Ronaldo is still licking his wounds after throwing down his captain’s armband in anger during Portugal’s last match, the 2-2 draw with Serbia.
The Juve star was denied a last-gasp winner by the match officials. Ronaldo wrote on Instagram after the incident: “I always give and will give everything for my country, that will never change.
“But there are difficult times to deal with, especially when we feel that an entire nation is being harmed.”
My word that really was right on the stroke of half time. Pedro Neto twists and turns on the left wing before chipping in a cross for former Wolves team-mate Diogo Jota. Jota gets free in the box and powers in an unstoppable header! Devastation for Luxembourg. What a time to score!
