Luxembourg 0-2 Portugal: Ronaldo Reaches 99 International Goals as Holders Qualify

Luxembourg 0-2 Portugal: Ronaldo Reaches 99 International Goals as Holders Qualify for the 2020 European championship finals.

Goals:
Bruno Fernandes (39′) Cristiano Ronaldo (86′)

Cristiano Ronaldo took his tally of international goals to 99 with a late tap-in as Portugal secured a place at Euro 2020 with a laboured 2-0 win over Luxembourg.

Ronaldo fell just short of becoming the second player in history to reach a century for his country after Iran’s Ali Daei on an afternoon when he struggled on a slow pitch at Stade Jose Barthel, where the reigning European champions were made to work hard for the victory.

The creative endeavour of Bernardo Silva proved more of a threat than Ronaldo’s presence and it was the Manchester City playmaker who teed up Bruno Fernandes to break the deadlock late in the first half of Sunday’s Group B clash.
