Euro 2024: Cristiano Ronaldo is in top form after scoring a brace against Ireland.

Published on

CR7 is back! Cristiano Ronaldo, who was left out of the group during Portugal's 4-2 win over Finland and was on the bench on Saturday, is back in attack alongside Rafael Leo ahead of Joao Felix in Portugal's final match against Ireland this Tuesday evening.

Author of the brace, he proved once again that he belongs in Portugal's starting XI. If his first period was marked by the opener of Joao Felix's score and a free kick on CR7's post, the Saudi Arabian Championship's top scorer immediately returned from the locker room to make it 2-0, and what a goal! Receiving a great ball from the incoming Ruben Neves, CR7 breaks free of the scales and opens his left foot to score in the opposite corner.

This was before doubling the lead and scoring his side's third a few minutes later, when Ronaldo found himself on the receiving end of Diogo Jota's cross that broke through the Irish defense on the right. With his left foot, Ronaldo once again conquers the Aveiro Stadium, where he will score his 129th and 130th goals for the selection this evening.

Portugal's start to the Euros is still uncertain, and the five-time Ballon d'Or won plenty of points this evening, albeit against a modest Irish side, but it won't go to Germany. Portugal open their Group F campaign against the Czech Republic next Tuesday.
