Watch: The Entire Stadium screamed “SIIU” with Cristiano Ronaldo after he scored a goal for Portugal last night vs Luxembourg in the Euro 2020 Qualifiers.
Defending European Champions Portugal, completed their 3rd on the trot. Their 3-0 win against Luxembourg has put them in firm command at 2nd position in their group, just behind Ukraine who have a lead of 5 points with a game extra.
Bernardo Silva, who has been brilliant for both club and country, opened the scoring in the 16th minute. The team however, lost their depth soon after and even though they never seemed in danger of conceding, they didn’t look threatening thereafter.
The team came back with a vengeance in the second half and doubled their lead in the 65th minute of the match through their skipper Cristiano Ronaldo who notched up his 94th international goal to bring himself all the more closer to the illustrious 3 digit figure.
