Crazy Ronaldo Show: First attack, then penalty, then last minute double pack!
Written by Eric Ranninger
Pharaoh – What a completion! Cristiano Ronaldo (36) The Portuguese proved once again how strange he is in the World Cup qualifier against Ireland on Wednesday evening. Of Man United Returnees With two last-minute hits, the hosts secured a 2-1 victory, but still have a lackluster taste.
It was an exciting fight in Group A of the World Cup qualifiers.
Ireland went to the group leaders after two defeats in the first two matches.
The team around BVB legionnaire Rafael Guerrero (27) and superstar Cristiano Ronaldo wanted to make the next important move to Qatar.

The goal was to score the third of four possible points against Stephen Kenny’s team (49).
And the game started with excitement. At the club level, Ronaldo’s new teammate Bruno Fernandez (26) fell in the penalty area a quarter of an hour later. The situation of the refereeing team around the Slovenian Matej Jag (40) is not so clear. The referee pointed out the matter even after minutes of video evidence.
Of course, Cristiano Ronaldo grabbed the ball and brought it to the penalty spot. Dara Oshia, 22, was spitting on playground equipment.
The 36-year-old suddenly blew fuses and hit the young man in the face. It fell to the ground dramatically.
CR7 attack? The feet cool the mind
It’s not entirely clear if he really got Ronaldo. Still one of the most exciting. CR7 was allowed to continue playing, and then entered with a delay – disappeared.
19-year-old Gavin Banusu solved!
It turned out to be even worse for the home side. Just before the break, John Egan (28) scored the opening goal for the guests (45).
29: 6 attempts to score against Portugal, Ireland with 72% possession: but the final stage kills the guests
Portugal fought against well-organized guests from the island. But the massive holdings of about 72 per cent could not be made a measurable one.
There were enough shots on goal, but that shouldn’t be mandatory for the time being.
The guests’ counterattack was dangerous – until the 89th minute!

After a cross from the right, five-time world footballer Ronaldo climbed to the highest level and was able to put his header in such a way as to eventually overtake the young Banusu.
That should be the beginning of an intense stoppage time. People around CR7, RB Leipzig striker Andre Silva (25), who came on to replace the unlucky Rafa at the break, once again pushed the accelerator.
In the end, among other things, the Portuguese had a crazy 29: 6 shot on the credit side. One of them ended up being the most acclaimed winner on the Irish machine.
Cristiano Ronaldo scores his first goal for the Portuguese
Again it was Cristiano Ronaldo – using almost a copy of his first goal – who scored the golden goal to make it 2-1 (90 + 6).
In the head again, only this time with hysterical joy. At the same time it was a particularly bitter blow to the Irish, who fought tirelessly.
The captain of the 2016 European Champions tore his jersey and not only celebrated his furious goal finish, but finally managed to put the Iranian Ali Dai (52) behind in the history books.
Day (109 goals) is still with the Portuguese, the most successful international goal scorer in the world.
But the 36-year-old Eccentric from Funchal is now in first place, scoring 110 and 111 respectively. With a double strike, he paved the way for his country to reach the 2022 World Cup.
