Ronaldo reaches another career milestone with super goal

Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo reached another career milestone with his 700th goal for club and country when he scored against Ukraine in the Euro qualifiers.

The 34-year-old scored his 699th goal during the 3-0 win against Luxemburg on Friday night. However, the big goal was to qualify for the Euro 2020 and Portugal needed a win against Group B leaders Ukraine.

The home side had the better of the early exchanges and entered into a 2-0 lead courtesy goals by Roman Yaremchuk and Andriy Yarmolenko in a breathtaking first half.

Portugal pushed for a comeback in the second half inside the Stadion NSK Olimpiyskiy in Kyiv and found a way when the referee spotted a handball in the box and awarded Fernando Santos’ men a penalty. Ronaldo stepped up and dispatched the penalty with aplomb.

It wasn’t Portugal’s night despite playing against a 10-man Ukraine side as the match ended 2-1 and Andriy Shevchenko celebrated with his team while Ronaldo and teammates watched in despair.
