Cristiano Ronaldo (38, Al-Nasr) of the Portuguese national team delivered the news of the A-match goal.
On the 27th (Korean time), Portugal defeated Luxembourg 6-0 in the away game of the second leg of Group J of the Euro 2024 qualifying group held at the Stade de Luxembourg in Luxembourg.
Portugal, who previously defeated Liechtenstein 4-0, won two games in a row. They announced their smooth sailing by running first in the group with two consecutive victories.
It was Ronaldo who opened the fire. In the 9th minute of the first half, a cross from the side was headed by Nuno Mendes. Ronaldo, who was at the door, easily pushed it in. Portugal, who scored the opening goal early, opened the attack with plenty of time. Joao Felix and Bernardo Silva added to the scoring streak to widen the gap. 먹튀검증
Ronaldo’s toes shone once again. In the 31st minute of the first half, he quickly penetrated the space between the defenses. With a clever move, he evaded even the pursuing defender and then confronted the goalkeeper. Ronaldo finished with his left foot and managed to score multiple goals. Ronaldo withdrew in the 20th minute of the second half. Portugal then added two more goals to celebrate their victory by six goals.
Ronaldo, who scored two goals against Liechtenstein last time, managed to score multiple goals in two consecutive matches. His record breaking continued. Having become the most capped player in an A match in his last game, he extended his appearances to 198. His A-match all-time record of 122 goals is still ongoing.
Coach Roberto Martinez (50), who became the new head coach of the Portuguese national team after the World Cup in Qatar, also raised his thumb. He selected Ronaldo again after his retirement from the national team was predicted after the World Cup.
After the game, manager Martinez said of Ronaldo, “He is a special player with the most A-match appearances,” and “His experience is very important in the dressing room.”
“Every player plays an important role,” said coach Martinez.
