Cristiano Ronaldo's stunning double with Portugal in a friendly against Ireland

Published on

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a brace in Portugal's 3-0 win over Ireland in a friendly on Tuesday. After a magnificent sequence he cleared the opponent's top corner.

At 39, Cristiano Ronaldo is still hungry. The Portuguese striker scored an impressive brace in Portugal's 3-0 win over Ireland in a friendly on Tuesday. After Joao Felix opened the scoring in the first period, CR7 excelled in the second, especially with his first spectacular goal. Alerted to a long ball by Ruben Nevesin, the elusive Al-Nasser star on the right side of the area eluded Liam Scales with a series of leg passes before sending a left-footed shot into the opposite corner.

“One of my best goals? I don't know, I want to see them all again.”

“Is it one of my best goals? I don't know, I plan to review all my goals, but it has to be,” he said after the match. It's a lot to see again for the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, who scored 759 runs in his incredible career. He doubled that tally on Tuesday after doubling the Selecao's stake with a sharp strike from the left (60th) on a serve from Diogo Jota. He has now scored 130 goals in 209 appearances for Portugal. A sixth career Euro is enough to keep his ambitions intact ahead of 2024.

“The most important thing is that the team played well and it is important to win regardless of who scored the goals,” he added. “The team is in sync, the goal was victory and confidence. Saturday's loss against Croatia (2-1) , nothing, they always want Portugal to win, because a defeat is always bad, but that's where the losses come from, if not we can't learn. Learn, we always keep our feet on the ground. Our thoughts should be heavenward.

The former Royal star is aiming for the second crown after 2016. “Of course, I dream like that! Playing for the national team is my love, my passion. Of course, the European Championship is special, it's my sixth, it's also a record, but since 2004, in my first match, playing for the Portuguese, the thought and the pride remain the same, We need to think positively for the Euro stage, this team has to dream, they have the talent and have worked hard, because talent is useless without work. Portugal is in Group F with the Czech Republic, Georgia and Turkey.
