Ronaldo scores, Portugal beats Qatar

Cristiano Ronaldo scored and helped lead the Portuguese national team to beat Qatar in a friendly match.

Ronaldo, who was starting from the first minute, managed to open Portugal’s advantage over Qatar in the 37th minute. Ronaldo’s goal showed CR7’s ability to read opportunities.

This goal stems from the decision of Matheus Nunes to send feedback to the far post. Diogo Dalot sprinted after the ball and immediately sent it in front of goal.

As the Qatar defenders couldn’t pass the ball well, the ball fell in front of Ronaldo who easily rattled the goal.

But Ronaldo’s action did not continue because coach Fernando Santos decided to pull out Ronaldo at half-time. Rafael Leao is believed to be playing in place of Ronaldo.

After three minutes of the second half, Portugal scored the second goal against Qatar through Jose Fonte. Jose Fonte took advantage of a wild ball that occurred in front of goal.

Other Portugal star players such as Bernardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes and Joao Moutinho in the middle of the second half.

A number of substitutions made Portugal could have an additional goal in the 90th minute through Andre Silva.

Victory in this friendly match is a valuable asset for the Portuguese national team. On Wednesday (13/10), Portugal will continue the struggle in the 2022 Pre World Cup by facing Luxembourg.

Cristiano Ronaldo set several other records after scoring for Portugal in a 3-0 win over Qatar.

One goal scored against Qatar made Ronaldo sharpen the record as the player who scored the most goals in the national team. Ronaldo has now scored 112 goals. If you look at his performance which is still slick at the age of 36, it is not impossible that Ronaldo will continue to extend his record on this one.

Ronaldo is now three goals ahead of Iran national team legend, Ali Daei. Previously, CR7 officially became the record holder for the most goals after recording 111 last September.

Contribution of one goal against Qatar also made Ronaldo carve another record. Ronaldo for the first time scored against Qatar.

Ronaldo has now scored against 46 different countries during his time for Portugal.

In addition, Ronaldo also managed to break the record as the player with the most caps in European football. The Portugal national team captain already has 181 caps, ahead of his former team-mate, Sergio Ramos, who has 180 caps with the Spanish national team.

After the record, Ronaldo expressed his ambition. He wants to take Portugal through to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
