Cristiano Ronaldo reacts to Portugal’s draw with Ireland, sends message

Cristiano Ronaldo has had his say after Portugal were held to a 0-0 draw with Ireland.

Ronaldo was unable to add to his 115 international goals and repeat his heroics from the previous win over Ireland.

The Manchester United star had a header go inches wide of the post in the second half, before his injury time effort from a tight angle was saved by Gavin Bazunu.

Ronaldo said after the game that it is ‘always difficult’ to play in Ireland, a sign of respect towards his opponents.

Portugal set up for crucial game

Ronaldo is motivated for a huge game on Sunday as Portugal take on Serbia.

Both teams are level on points and the winner will qualify automatically for the World Cup, and the runners-up most negotiate the play-offs.

Ronaldo’s Portugal have home advantage and just need a draw to proceed.

A win against Ireland would have put Portugal in the same situation, still needing either a win or a draw against Serbia, so the result was a bit of a non-event where they were concerned.

Bruno Fernandes played and was substituted after 70 minutes after a quiet game, while Diogo Dalot played 90 minutes at left-back.

Ronaldo shows kind heart

Ronaldo was approached by a pitch invader after the game, which seems quite common nowadays where he is concerned.

This time it was a young girl, and Ronaldo showed his kind side, giving her his shirt, and a memory she will never forget.
