Portugal vs Ireland: Ronaldo nets brace to becomes international top scorer
Portugal 2-1 Republic of Ireland. Cristiano Ronaldo misses penalty and scores two goals, then he becomes all-time top international scorer. John Egan’s header for Ireland.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s 110th and 111th international goals were enough for Portugal to complete a dramatic late comeback to see off a resilient Ireland on Wednesday evening. His first on the night saw him overtake Ali Daei as international football’s record goalscorer.
The Manchester United forward had endured a frustrating night for 89 minutes, then equalising in the 89th and scoring the winner in the 96th minute, after the five minutes added had passed.
A sloppy piece of Irish defending 10 minutes in presented Portugal with a penalty, but Cristiano had his spot kick saved by 19-year-old goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu, who is currently on loan at Portsmouth.
John Egan then gave Ireland a shock lead on the stroke of half time, and Stephen Kenny’s side stood firm for the majority of the second half.
But Cristiano arrived when it mattered most. In the last minute of the 90 he headed in an equaliser, then went on to win the game with another header deep into stoppage time.
