Cristiano Ronaldo’s Last-Minute Goal Saves Portugal Vs. Denmark (Video)


October 14, 2014

Cristiano Ronaldo has done it again.

Ronaldo, 29, scored a last-minute, game-winning goal Tuesday to help his country, Portugal, beat Denmark 1-0 in UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying.

In the fifth minute of second-half stoppage time, Portugal winger Ricardo Quaresma sent a cross from out wide toward Ronaldo, who had darted into the goal mouth. Ronaldo then rose above defender Simon Kjaer and headed Quaresma’s delivery past goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

Ronaldo and his teammates appropriately went bonkers after his goal, as it gave Portugal a vital win in Group I.

Ronaldo’s goal was the 51st of his international career. We suspect there are many more to come.
