Cristiano Ronaldo He Helped Secure A 3-1 Victory For Portugal In Luxembourg

Cristiano Ronaldo edged closer to Ali Daei’s international goals record as he opened his account for the World Cup qualifying campaign in Portugal’s 3-1 comeback win over Luxembourg.

Ronaldo had a last-gasp winner disallowed against Serbia on Saturday, but the Juventus star had no need to throw his captain’s armband to the floor in anger this time around, nudging home to make it 2-1 to Portugal five minutes into the second half.

Fresh from his goal in Luxembourg’s victory over the Republic of Ireland, Gerson Rodrigues had put the minnows who had Maxime Chanot sent off late on – ahead with a smart header.

Diogo Jota levelled proceedings on the cusp of half-time to pave the way for Ronaldo’s 103rd international goal and Joao Palhinha’s header to send Portugal top of Group A.
