Ronaldo ran through on goal and produced a brilliant chip over the goalkeeper to finish. Bernardo Silva and Cristiano Ronaldo both got on the scoresheet as Portugal ran out 3-0 winners over Luxembourg on Friday night.
Silva gave Portugal the perfect start when he opened the scoring on 16 minutes when he controlled and fired home from close range. Portugal were in cruise control and Ronaldo made it 2-0 when he ran through on goal and chipped the goalkeeper brilliantly on 65 minutes.
Despite the comfortable nature of the win, Portugal will be disappointed not to have won by a bigger scoreline after missing a string of chances. Ronaldo had been hoping to get two goals to reach an incredible milestone of 700 goals at club and international level.
The man largely responsible for denying him his landmark goal was Luxembourg goalkeeper Anthony Moris. Moris produced countless fine saves to keep the score respectable after Silva had pounced on a loose ball and steered it past two defenders on the line to fire the home side ahead in the 16th minute.
