Ronaldo has the best record in the history of football! I also marked it with a fancy double

Cristiano is in great shape ahead of Euro 2024.

The Portuguese team completed its preparation for the Euro Cup with an important home victory over Ireland, with a double from Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo, who missed Portugal’s two previous friendly matches (the 39-year-old forward rested after the season in Saudi Arabia), played in the team’s final match before Euro 2024. Against Ireland he started. The Portuguese tactical scheme changed: Roberto Martínez returned to a scheme with three central defenders. Probably because in the last four friendly matches the Portuguese team lost two goals. Exactly as much as for the entire qualification cycle for Euro 2024.

In the home team’s attacking trio, Ronaldo was placed on the right, Rafael Leao on the left and Félix slightly below them, but sometimes it was João who was in front. From the first minutes, Cristiano was the center of attention, showing that he was in good physical shape. He launched a quick counterattack, which he himself would have completed after an impressive run if Cancelo had made a more precise pass into the area. Then the Al-Nasr forward made an assist, but the goal was rightly disallowed for offside: Ronaldo himself was offside. And halfway through the first half, Cristiano hit the post (taking advantage of a rebound) with a free kick.

Before this brilliant banner, Ronaldo participated in the episode that ended with a goal for the Portuguese team. After a magical penetrating pass from Cristiano, Dalo flew one by one, but the right back made a mistake in the area. Martínez’s team only deserved one corner kick and still scored. The hosts played a set piece and Irishman Smodic wasted Félix in the area. João received the ball and skillfully placed it in the far bottom corner.

How the Portuguese lost to Croatia without Cristiano:

Modric reigned while Ronaldo got bored. The Portuguese team has a problem before Euro 2024

The Portuguese dominated, possessing the ball twice as much. Cristiano could have deserved a penalty: the referee made the controversial decision not to award the penalty. The Irish also played with three central defenders, and in front they only had a forward with the nickname Ida. But the powerful trio of Pepe, Antonio Silva and Gonçalo Inácio are not intimidated by an interjection. You need to burn with the verb: press, beat. Irish manager John O’Shea, who played with Ronaldo at Manchester United, shouted something like “Attack!” Press!”, but nothing went well for the visitors: 0 shots on goal before the break. The Portuguese risked bravely, taking advantage of a pass from the goalkeeper when the Irish team was as high as possible.

According to the IFFHS, the match against Ireland was Ronaldo’s 1,226th in the top flight, surpassing former Brazilian goalkeeper Rogerio Ceni’s record. On a day like this, the Al-Nasr striker could not leave the field without scoring. And he didn’t leave! Ronaldo scored early in the second half, his goal largely thanks to a miraculous pass from deep by substitute Ruben Neves. In the area, Cristiano beat Celtic defender Skales one by one and shot perfectly into the top corner. Beauty!

The happy stadium chanted “Cristiano Ronaldo”, and the Portuguese scorer himself led the half-renewed team. Martínez made five changes at half-time, apparently keen to ensure a large group of players got good game time ahead of Euro 2024. Leau and Félix were on the pitch for just 45 minutes – Jota acted up front in a duo with Ronaldo . It was a brilliant pass from Zhota with the outside of his foot that helped the hosts’ star star score a brace at the end of the hour. Cristiano opened up masterfully and hit the ball.

With the score 3:0, the Portuguese played simply for their own pleasure, with ease, freedom and artistic elements. Apparently, Martínez will maintain this scheme for Euro 2024, at least in the 1st round. However, the Irish did not test the home defense. Only in the end they had something similar to a shot on goal. The final statistics of shots is 20:5 (on goal – 9:1).

Ronaldo had 41 touches on the ball in 90 minutes, took five shots, made two passes and made one dribble. He is definitely approaching the European Championship in optimal conditions.
