A magical and somewhat crazy evening for Cristiano Ronaldo, who became the all – time top scorer in international football, scoring two goals in seven minutes in Portugal ‘s 2-1 return to Group A against Ireland in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in Qatar. The United striker saved a penalty in the first half after Jeff Hendrick fouled Bruno Fernandes. John Egan led Ireland with a header from a corner kick at half time after Diego Jotta hit the post for the hosts.
The 36-year-old broke the record of 109 goals scored by Iranian Ali Dai in the 89th minute with a huge header that looks like a disappointing night for Ronaldo and his team. Then, in the sixth minute, he scored a double with a photocopy to score his 111th goal and give Portugal three points. Ireland are bottom of Group A with zero points from three games. Portugal lead by 10 points after four games, three ahead of Serbia, who have played one game less.
In the big matches of the evening, the spotlights were also on France-Bosnia (Group D) and Norway-Holland (Group G). Both matches ended in a 1-1 draw. Deschamps’ France have, for a long time, responded to Griezmann’s goal with a goal of a temporary achievement for Disco. In the match between Norway and the Netherlands, on the 20th Holland gave the hosts a shot from the edge of the area and took the lead through a left-footed shot that pierced Bijou. At 37, Orange’s reaction with Clanson comes, and he throws a strong right in the middle of the goal, which Hanson has no choice.
In Group F, Denmark won again, controlling Scott 2-0, thanks to goals from Vaz and Mehle. Israel (4-0 in the Faroe Islands), Malta (3-0 against Cyprus), Latvia (3-1 in Gibraltar), Luxembourg (2-1 in Azerbaijan), Austria (2) in Moldova, goals from Bangartner and Arnotovich). Montenegro (Marussic’s goal) fully recovered in Istanbul 2-2. Between Kazakhstan and Ukraine at 2-2 in the afternoon, the guests thanked Yaremchuk (2 ‘) and Sikan (93’) for allowing them to catch Valiul in ’96 after leading twice.
