IR Iran v Portugal – 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ – Match 35
Португалската фудбалска ѕвезда, Кристијано Роналдо го урна славниот рекорд на Ференц Пушкаш и стана најдобриот европски стрелец во историјата на фудбалот.
По хет-трикот за реми против Шпанија (3:3), ја затресе мрежата и на Мароканците за рекордни 85 погодоци, бројка која ниту еден фудбалер ја нема постигнато носејќи го репрезентативниот дрес. Досега рекордот го држеше Пушкаш со 84 погодоци за Унгарија во периодот од 1945-1954.
Роналдо засега е и прв стрелец на Мундијалот во Русија со четири погодоци. До крајот на кариерата ќе ја напаѓа борјката од 100 погодоци во националниот дрес на Португалија.
Portugal 1 v 0 Morocco – 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ – Match 19
Кристијано Роналдо одигра феноменален натпревар на стартот од СП 2018, постигнувајќи хет-трик против Шпанија и испишувајќи нови страници во листата на рекорди.
Хет-трикот постигнат на возраст од 33 години и 130 дена го направи Роналдо најстар играч кој постигнал три гола на еден мундијалски дуел.
Покрај тоа, Кристијано стигна до неверојатно остварување – запишувајќи се меѓу стрелците на осум големи натпреварувања во низа. Станува збор за серија што започна на ЕП 2004 и продолжи на СП 2006, ЕП 2008, СП 2010, ЕВРО 2012, и сега на мундијалот во Русија во 2018 година.
Марко Гонсалвес, фудбалер на нисколигашот Канелас 2010 од Португалија, нокаутираше судија со колено на сред натпревар. Веднаш потоа, Гонсалвес е избркан од клубот од каде објавија дека никогаш повеќе нема да го носи нивниот дрес.
Се почна по една гужва пред шеснаесетникот на гостите, во натпревар од четвртата лига на Португалија, кога Гонсалвес удри противнички фудбалер. Судијата сето тоа го забележа доделувајќи му црвен картон, по што Гонсалвес веднаш со колено го нокаутираше судијата.
Santos has moulded the new European champions into a well organised, disciplined, cohesive machine who may not be easy on the eye, but are incredibly tough to beat. The football certainly isn’t pretty, however the effectiveness of Santos’ tactics, Portugal’s game plan, along with their envied team spirit, has resulted in the country’s first major tournament success, so no one will be complaining.
However, you’d be forgiven for momentarily thinking that Portugal skipper Cristiano Ronaldo, who was forced off in the first-half with an injury, was the manager following his remarkable touchline antics in extra-time:
Thousands of Portuguese fans celebrated the victory of their national football team against France in the Euro 2016 final in Paris, Sunday.
They’re boring, they haven’t won a game in 90 minutes, they finished third in their group…The barbs had been flying at Portugal from all corners before their Euro 2016 semi-final with Wales.
Even the beaten quarter-finalists chipped in. “Portugal are weaker than Turkey and Czech Republic… we all know we were better,” said Croatia defender Vedran Corluka after their 1-0 extra-time defeat.
The 2-0 victory over Wales in the semi-final quietened a few doubters, but still it has been asked if this Portugal side are one of the worst teams to reach a European Championship final.
Portugal all set to take on hosts France on Sunday’s Euro 2016 final at Stade de France in Paris. The visitors will hope to lift the trophy for the first time. As Cristiano Ronaldo and Ricardo Carvalho have waited a dozen years to reach another final with Portugal. Some teammates will have a more recent Portuguese setback on their minds.
Battling outsiders Iceland enjoyed a memorable big-stage debut as they clinched a shock 1-1 draw against Euro 2016 Group F favourites Portugal in a captivating match on Tuesday.
Cristiano Ronaldo missed a second-half penalty and had a late headed effort disallowed as Portugal’s future at Euro 2016 looked in jeopardy following a 0-0 draw against Austria in a wide open Group F on Saturday.
Portugal have yet to win at Euro 2016 and face a testing last-16 clash against Croatia but Cristiano Ronaldo’s first two goals at the tournament have filled the team with confidence.
A close-range header from Portugal substitute Ricardo Quaresma secured a 1-0 win over Croatia after the game burst into life in the last few minutes of extra time on Saturday to set up a Euro 2016 quarter-final against Poland next week.
A superb shootout save by Portugal’s Rui Patricio allowed Ricardo Quaresma to be the hero again as his spot kick against Poland sent them into the Euro 2016 semi-finals 5-3 on penalties after a 1-1 finish following extra time on Thursday.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored one goal and inadvertently set up the other as Portugal ground out a 2-0 win over Wales on Wednesday to march into the Euro 2016 final.
Tempers flared between Portugal and Wales fans in a Lyon fanzone, during the teams’ UEFA 2016 European Championship’s semi-final.
The altercation, which saw rival fans throw plastic glasses at one another and exchange insults, broke out after Portugal scored their second goal, sealing a 2-0 victory.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Nani netted a quickfire second-half double to secure Portugal’s progression to the Euro 2016 final with a 2-0 win over Wales.
The Dragons struggled to ever get going as they played in the biggest game in their history, and after being dealt such a blow in such quick succession, they never showed an ability to fight back and clinch a remarkable place in the final.
The first half started as it would continue, with the majority of play being focused in the middle of the park, and few shots coming in from either side.
James Collins, starting in place of the suspended Ben Davies, was more than a match for Ronaldo in the centre of defence, throwing his body around to clear a number of crosses sent into the area.
He sent one clearing header away from goal, although on second viewing he appeared to be pulling Ronaldo to the ground, and was lucky to not concede a penalty.
The first real shooting chance came courtesy of the impressive Joao Mario, who was a major thorn in the Welsh defence in the opening half.
The midfielder played a give-and-return with Ronaldo, but after breaking into the right side of the box he could only drag his attempt wide of the far post.
Gareth Bale was doing all he could as Wales’ main playmaker, registering the first chance for Chris Coleman’s men; Joe Ledley’s low corner was met by the Real Madrid man, but his off-balance shot flew over the bar.
The chance seemed to spur Bale on, and he sent a cross into the box which only narrowly evaded the onrushing Andy King. King was then beaten in the air by Jose Fonte, failing to send Hal Robson-Kanu’s cross on target.
Bale then recorded the only on-target attempt of the half, charging into space in the Portugal half and cutting onto his left shot; however, his left-footed strike was straight down Rui Patricio’s throat.
The game petered out as the half wore on, Wales happy to sit deep and watch as a number of long-range attempts flew wide of Wayne Hennessey’s goal.
Portugal started the second half with much more directness to their play, and they claimed the advantage five minutes into the period – naturally through Ronaldo.
A left-wing corner was sent into the area, and the superstar leaped highest to thump a header past Hennessey, who was facing his first test of the evening.
Before Wales could recover, they fell two behind, Nani converting a Ronaldo shot which fortunately deflected into his path in the six-yard box.
Ronaldo then skimmed the top of the bar from a free-kick, and Danilo flashed a rebound wide after Hennessey spilled a Nani shot – although he really should have hit the back of the net.
Coleman made changes, looking to get Wales back into the game, but despite bringing on both Simon Church and Sam Vokes, their attacking play continued to flounder.
Bale struck a dipping volley which Patricio easily held, before testing the keeper with another attempt, but they were merely half-chances, as the Portugal defence held firm and prevented any real shots on goal.
As in the first period, the game ebbed to a close rather than increasing in intensity despite Wales’ need to score.
Lobbed balls into the box were cleared again and again, and the final whistle went to send Coleman’s men home from France – where, despite this result, they will return as heroes
Portugal sealed their place in the semi-finals as they beat Poland 5-3 on penalties. The two sides cancelled each other out after a lively first-half that promised much but petered out into a tight and tense affair. Lewandowski gave Poland a dream start as Grosicki, a constant menace from the left, sent in an inch-perfect cross for the Bayern striker to end his seven-game drought and slide the ball past Rui Patricio.
The early strike set the stage for an exciting, end-to-end half full of attacking intent. Renato Sanches, who was given the nod to start in the Portuguese midfield, produced the moment of the half and topped off an impressive display with a left-footed effort that curled past Fabianski, albeit with a slight deflection.
Despite both sides looking to stamp their authority on the tie, the game began to follow a familiar pattern marked out in the previous round, where both were taken into extra-time. Poland went all the way to penalties as they beat Switzerland, while Portugal almost stared at the same fate but for a last-gasp Quaresma winner. The evening took on an air of inevitability, despite both sides’ best efforts to avoid the shootout, and Cristiano Ronaldo in particular had a number of efforts he surely would have put away in days gone by.
Blaszczykowski missed the crucial penalty for the Poles and it was left to Quaresma to slam the ball into the roof of the net and send Fernando Santos’s men into the semi-finals without actually winning a game in 90 minutes at Euro 2016.
Cristiano Ronaldo cut a peripheral figure throughout until a quick counter-attack immediately after Ivan Perisic headed against the foot of a post saw his shot – the first on target all evening was saved by Daniel Subasic only to pop up to Quaresma two yards out.
Even the goal had an element of luck as it looked like it was a mis-hit shot from Nani which fortuitously found its way to Ronaldo, who put in yet another disappointing performance at this tournament.
He managed just 19 touches in the first half – none in Croatia’s penalty area – and that was symptomatic of the opening 45 minutes which saw Pepe head over a Joao Mario free-kick and Perisic fire into the side-netting.
There was little improvement after the break as Marcelo Brozovic fired over from quickly-taken corner after Portugal’s defence switched off and Domagoj Vida headed wide a Darijo Srna free-kick.
Even in extra-time there was little ambition with Perisic volleying wide a Luka Modric cross and Vida heading over a corner.
The match turned on 30 seconds in the dying moments as Perisic headed against the upright and Portugal launched an attack up field.
Renato Sanches carried it forward, offloaded to Nani, becoming the fourth Portugal player to win 100 caps, whose toe-poked effort seemed to be an intended shot but somehow found its way to Ronaldo at the far post.
His strike rebounded off Subasic to present Quaresma with the easiest of chances.
Croatia had one last chance to force penalties but Vida hooked a shot across the goal and wide of the far post.
A Zoltan Gera half-volley put Hungary in front but Ronaldo set up Nani to fire in an equaliser before the break.
Two deflected Balazs Dzsudzsak strikes twice restored Hungary’s lead early in the second half, but a Ronaldo flick and header levelled on each occasion.
Hungary progress as Group F winners, with Portugal through in third place.
Portugal had been on course to play England in the last 16 as they occupied second place in the group at the final whistle in Lyon, but it was Iceland who claimed the runner-up spot with a dramatic injury-time winner against Austria in Paris.
Portugal, who would have crashed out had they lost to Hungary, have now reached the knockout stage in all seven of their European Championship appearances.
Hungary, who were denied a winner when Adam Szalai’s shot hit the post, will now play Belgium, who finished second in Group E.
Ronaldo appeared to be feeling the strain of not having scored at the tournament when, during a team stroll ahead of the Hungary match, he grabbed the microphone of a reporter and threw it into a river.
The 31-year-old came into the match with no goals from 20 attempts in the first two matches – including a missed penalty against Austria – and cut a forlorn and frustrated figure after Hungary took the lead through Gera’s superb strike.
But the Real Madrid star set up Portugal’s equaliser when he played a piercing ball for Nani to drive in a low shot which beat Gabor Kiraly at his near post.
And when Portugal twice fell behind to Dzsudzsak after the break, Ronaldo responded by rediscovering his scoring prowess just when it was needed.
His first goal – a deft flick from Joao Mario’s cross – made him the first player to score in four different European Championship finals tournaments.
“A crazy game, we were out of the European Championship three times, and we were always chasing the game,” said Ronaldo.
“It’s not every team that manages to beat Spain, so we respect them [Croatia]. But we know our strength, we know our worth, and we’ll look them in the eyes.”
Unfancied Hungary have emerged as one of the feel-good stories of the Euros and have advanced from the group stage of a major tournament for the first time since the 1966 World Cup.
They conceded 63.2% of possession to Portugal but they scored three goals and caused Portugal’s defence plenty of problems, even though manager Bernd Storck did not play four players on yellow cards.
They went ahead when 37-year-old former West Brom and Fulham midfielder Gera chested down a half-cleared corner before drilling home from 25 yards, while a free-kick and left-footed strike from Dzsudzsak went in off Andre Gomes and Nani respectively.
Akos Elek and Gergo Lovrencsics also went close, while a shot from Szalai effort struck the post in a pulsating game.
Cristiano Ronaldo is known for throwing the occasional hissy fit. But even by the Real Madrid megastar’s standards, the tantrum he throws in the clip above is remarkable.
Out for a stroll with his Portugal team mates, CR7™ is approached by a journalist seeking comment from the world’s most famous footballer (sorry, Leo).
Nothing unusual in that. Ronaldo has journalists asking him questions all the time.
What IS unusual is Ronaldo’s response to this particular reporter. He grabs his microphone…. and THROWS IT INTO THE RIVER.
The journalist in question is from CMTV – and Ronaldo is not a fan of their work. The Portuguese captain, unhappy with some of their coverage, has refused to answer questions from them in the past.
However, the question on this occasion was: “Ronaldo, are you prepared for this game today?”
Not exactly outrageous, is it?
Clearly, the mere approach was the final straw for Cristiano. It seems the pressure of leading his nation at Euro 2016 is all getting to be too much.
Fernando Santos’ side drew with Iceland in their opener on Tuesday, while the Austrians were hoping to bounce back from defeat to Hungary.
It was an action-packed game, the Portuguese having over 20 shots once again but they could not find the breakthrough.
Nani hit the post with a first-half header, while Cristiano Ronaldo failed to find the back of the net with a number of chances – the Real Madrid forward missing a penalty in the second half before having a header ruled out for offside on his record-breaking 128th appearance.
A goal for the Portuguese forward would make him the first player to score at four European Championship finals – but he could be pipped to the achievement by Sweden’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
It was an exciting start to the match at Parc des Princes, the Austrians very nearly taking the lead after four minutes. Marcel Sabitzer lost Pepe in the box to meet Martin Harnik’s cross, heading it wide when he should really have been hitting the target.
Robert Almer was in for a busy night and he was called into his first piece of action on 12 minutes, first stopping Vieirinha’s deflected shot before making an excellent save to deny Nani in a one-on-one.
Ronaldo had a relatively quiet half and he was furious with himself after missing a great chance for Santos’ side, meeting Nani’s cross from the left, letting the ball run across his body and side-footing the ball past the near post from eight yards.
On the half hour Nani – recently linked with a return to Manchester United – headed a cross against the post, Portugal’s best chance of the half and the rebound was smashed over from 20 yards by Andre Gomes – another reported target for United and Chelsea.
Austria continued to look dangerous on the attack, Bayern Munich left-back David Alaba marauding forward and he was fouled on the edge of the area on the right-hand side. The angle for the resulting free-kick was too acute to shoot from and the resulting cross fizzed across goal, Vieirinha eventually heading it clear off the line.
As Ronaldo operated in a wider position early in the second half with Nani central, the Real Madrid legend sent a 25-yard, left-footed drive towards goal – Almer saving again. From the following corner, the 31-year-old headed on target but it was straight at the ever-present goalkeeper.
Portugal piled on the pressure after the break, Ronaldo failing to hit the target with a couple of trademark free-kicks.
The star man was then fouled in the area by Martin Hinteregger and he stepped up to take the resulting spot-kick, with the continent expecting him to set the record ahead of Man Utd-bound Ibrahimovic. But he dragged it wide from 12 yards, rattling the frame of the goal.
The Madrid man soon started celebrating as he finally headed past Almer, but this time he was denied by the flag. It was not his day and not Portugal’s, as Austria settled for a hard-earned point ahead of their final group match with Iceland

Euro 2016: Portugal 1-1 Iceland: Birkir Bjarnason strikes to secure valuable point
Birkir Bjarnason scored Iceland’s first ever tournament goal as Heimir Hallgrimsson and Lars Lagerback’s men fought back to a 1-1 draw with Portugal in Saint-Etienne.
Luis Nani had opened the scoring in a dominating performance from the favourites, but a defensive mishap allowed Iceland back into the game, and they held on valiantly to claim a point from the hardest game in Group F.
It took over half-an-hour for Nani to grab the opener, but Portugal will rightfully feel they should have been much further ahead by that point – although it was Gylfi Sigurdsson who came closest to breaking the deadlock.
Finding space in the inside-left channel, he hit a powerful drive towards the near post, although Rui Patricio dealt with the shot, before claiming the rebound which Sigurdsson failed to direct into the back of the net.
Following that chance for the tournament debutants, Portugal dominated the half; Andre Gomes and Joao Mario were heavily involved in much of the attacking play.
Vieirinha had their first real attempt, smashing a strong shot at goal from 25 yards which goalkeeper Hannes Thor Halldorsson did well to punch away.
Halldorsson was Iceland’s most involved player in the half, following up that punch with a series of impressive catches from Portugal crosses.
He then made one of the saves of the tournament, to keep the score level.
Cristiano Ronaldo showed his first real glimpse, making space for himself on the left wing and sending the ball into the box. It was perfectly weighted for Nani to head home, but Halldorsson came flying across his goal to deflect the ball with his foot.
However, the keeper could not hold his own for much longer, and Nani soon beat him with a sidefooted finish from Gomes’ well worked cross.
Portugal continued to apply the pressure, Ronaldo going closest to grab the second, but Iceland’s back-line held firm, entering the dressing room at half-time in need of some severe changes.
And although Iceland started the second half in the same manner they ended the first, it was they who got the all-important next goal.
A counter attack saw Birkir Bjarnason lashing home a Savarsson cross from close range, having been given all the time in the world to set himself up thanks to some woefully poor defending from Vieirinha.
The goal brought a renewed vigour to Portugal, although they struggled to break through a sold defence.
Ronaldo and Nani each had two opportunites to retake the lead, although Iceland looked dangerous on the counter without ever really threatening the goal.
Portugal pushed for the next goal, introducing Renato Sanches and Ricardo Quaresma from the bench, whilst Alfred Finnbogason came on as Iceland themselves continued to attack when presented the opportunity.
And Finnbogason was so close to bagging a winner, forcing a fine stop from Patricio with a powerful left footed shot from inside the area.
Ronaldo had the last opportunities for Portugal, but two successive free-kicks hit the wall, and following the latter the referee blew the whistle to great cheers from the Iceland players.
