12 Octobre, 2019, 15:19 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Ronaldo scored his side's second goal in the game as Portugal eased to victory in Euro 2020 qualifying Group B, keeping them second in the group.

Cristiano Ronaldo evolved from CR7 into CR700 on Friday night, bagging his country's second goal in their comfortable win, appropriate doing it in his former home, at Sporting's Estadio Jose Alvalade.

Poor finishing coupled with Moris's heroics kept Portugal at bay before Ronaldo netted his 94th global goal to reach the 699 mark at senior level and Goncalo Guedes sealed the win with an 89th-minute effort.

Cristiano came on for the second half though, and his arrival changed things. Goncalo Guedes scored the third goal in 89th minute to complete a 3-0 win for Portugal.

Luxembourg gave possession away cheaply and Ronaldo chipped home in the 65th minute.

The Universities Minister Sam Gyimah criticised its "staggering" failure to attract more students who are black or from less privileged backgrounds.

The goal was the fourth time that the 34-year-old has scored against Luxembourg in his career, and Ronaldo is already the all-time leading goalscorer for Portugal.

It was a second goal in three internationals for Silva who arrived in Portugal under a cloud having been charged with misconduct by the English Football Association over a controversial social media post comparing City teammate Benjamin Mendy with a black cartoon character.

The 34-year-old is now just 15 goals behind the all-time global record of 109 held by former Iran striker Ali Daei.

Ronaldo could become only the 6th person to reach 700 career goals when Portugal play Ukraine on Monday.
