Ronaldo, who made his international debut at age 18 in August 2003, continued, “We didn’t play very well but sometimes football is like that.

In the 89th minute, Goncalo Inacio crossed the ball for Ronaldo to score. The goal was initially disallowed for offside, but the ruling was later reversed, and the Portugal captain was surrounded by his teammates.

Portugal is currently leading Group J after scoring 14 goals without answering in four straight victories, and they are already cruising to a spot in the European Championship in Germany next year.
