Great time for Portugal football and especially Cristiano Ronaldo fans.
The Portuguese national football team made their fans proud once again by winning on a dramatic triumph over Denmark and it was their captain’s added-time header that snatched the win for his country.
The dapper Portugal captain rose steadily to meet Quaresma’s cross & bury ball past Schmeichel which claimed all needed 3 points for his team in 95th minute. This very goal upped Portugal off table bottom & allocated a great seat in the 3rd place in the 5-team group on 3 points. The lost team remained 2nd, level on 4 points with the leaders Albania.
Ronaldo’s shenanigan at the Denmark match naturally received kudos from the Portugal coach. “Ronaldo is Ronaldo”, remarked a happy Fernando Santos as the Portugal coach was approached to share his thoughts on the team captain after he struck the winning goal. “He is a great winner & there is no adjective that could describe him.”
The Portugal captain declared his very presence within the 7th minute of the game with a great thumping shot prior to teeing up Daniel Agger 6 minutes later. The efforts were deftly saved by Schmeichel, right in Danish goal. The Danish national football squad lost their defender Boilesen (Nicolai) ten minutes into 2nd half while the left-back player had to be stretchered off given a knock out from Danny.
The Danish team relished ample possession post that, passing the ball well on rain-soaked, slick Parken pitch. They got their optimum chance when Hojbjerg (Pierre) muscled his route through & fed Eriksen (Christian), who quite teed up Krohn-Dehli (Michael) to fire up in the shot which came right back off far post.
Ronaldo came up on stage with time flying off & score the very decisive goal within minutes.
