It is incredible how single-handedly Ronaldo earned a win against Ireland last night. I have not seen a poorer performance from the Portugal side in recent times.
He pops up twice mid-air after a sedate game and missing the early penalty to finish off Ireland clinically. The heading is an attribute that is not a part of Messi’s game, nor is holding the record for most goals ever to be scored by an international football player for a country.
Gutted for Ireland. They put their heart and soul into this game and did not deserve a defeat. That is what world-class footballers can inflict upon you.
