The British public broadcaster “BBC” program “MOTD (Match of the Day)” reported on SNS on the 17th, “Ronaldo overwhelmed Erling Holan in scoring for the club and the national team in 2023 with multiple goals against Bosnia and Herzegovina.”
Portugal defeated Bosnia and Herzegovina 5-0 in the eighth Group J match of the 2024 European Championship (Euro 2024) qualifying round at Bilino Pole in Zenitsa, Bosnia and Herzegovina on the 17th. Portugal, which had already won a ticket to the finals, confirmed its place at the top of the group with two games left. 토토
Ronaldo, who is considered one of the greatest strikers in soccer history beyond Portugal, was the most notable player on the day when Portugal won a great victory. Ronaldo started the game and scored two goals, leading his team to a great victory.
Ronaldo, who played as a front-line striker in the 4-4-1-1 formation, scored the first goal with a penalty kick five minutes into the first half, giving Portugal the lead early on. Ronaldo, who was a kicker, succeeded in the penalty kick obtained by the opponent’s defense’s handball foul. In the 20th minute of the first half, he scored his second goal to build a 2-0 lead. Portugal quickly launched a counterattack, and Ronaldo finished it.
Since then, Bruno Fernandes (Manchester United), João Cancelo and João Felix (Barcelona) have scored in succession, and Portugal finished the first half 5-0. As the score of the first half continued in the second half, Portugal won eight consecutive A matches without difficulty overcoming Bosnia and Herzegovina even though it was an away game.
Portugal, which added three more points, won all eight of its preliminary matches, confirming its top spot in the group. With two games left, the gap with second-place Slovakia (16 points) widened to eight points. Portugal, which showed outstanding performance in both offense and defense with 32 goals and two runs, made us look forward to winning next year’s finals.
Meanwhile, “record maker” Ronaldo has increased his A-match scoring record to 127 goals as he has scored multiple goals in two consecutive games following two goals against Slovakia on the 14th. In addition, the record for the most appearances in A matches has also increased by one more game to 203 games. It widened the gap with 109 goals scored by Ali Daei of Iran, the second highest scorer, and 196 games played by Bader Almuwata of Kuwait.
