Superstar’ Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nasr) of the Portuguese national soccer team showed off his strength by scoring multiple goals in two consecutive matches in A-match.
Portugal defeated Luxembourg 6-0 on the 27th (Korean time) at Luxembourg Stadium in the away game of Group J of the UEFA Euro 2024 (2024 European Football Championship) preliminary group stage.
Ronaldo was responsible for two goals in the first half alone and took the lead in the big win.
In the 9th minute of the first half, he scored his first goal by pushing Nunu Mendes’ header pass from the goal.
In the 31st minute, he received Bruno Fernands’ forward pass and kicked it into the left corner of the goal to make it 4-0 and shouted ‘Hoowoo’.

Ronaldo’s record for most goals in an A-match has increased from 120 to 122.
Ronaldo also added a number to the record of the most appearances in A matches made in the last game, increasing it to 198 games. There are only two games left until the notice of ‘Participation in 200 matches in A’.
After Portugal’s quarterfinal exit at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Ronaldo is expected to retire from his national team.
The fact that the team moved to Al Nasr, Saudi Arabia, rather than the European stage after the World Cup, also strengthened this prospect.
However, Ronaldo was also called under the new manager Roberto Martinez (Spain), and although he played against the weak, he scored four goals in two matches and lived up to his name.
Coach Martinez expressed his intention to continue to use Ronaldo after the match. Ronaldo’s many A-match records are likely to be broken again and again in the future.
“Ronaldo has amazing international experience, as his record of 198 A-match appearances suggests,” Martinez said. “His experience is very important to our locker room.”
With two wins (six points), Portugal rose to first place in Group J.
Slovakia, with 1 win and 1 draw (4 points), is in second place in Group J, with direct tickets to the finals given to the second place in each group.
