World Cup Qualifiers 2014: Portugal and Cristiano Ronaldo maintain the course!

By beating Northern Ireland last night (4-2) at the end of a particularly lively game, Portugal and Cristiano Ronaldo, the author of a triplet, keep the course in view of the World Cup 2014!


Three weeks ago, Cristiano Ronaldo was already saving Portugal against the Netherlands, evening at the end of the meeting. But it was only a friendly one. After his triplet, which contributed greatly to the victory of his team (4-2) last night in Belfast, Portugal and its star attacker keep heading for the world 2014, an appointment that is now approaching big step! While the encounter has long seen the Portuguese doubting, following in particular the expulsion of Mastiga, Ronaldo reassured a whole nation by offering an express triplet, made in a quarter of an hour watch in hand (68th, 77th and 83rd)! With this victory in the face of Northern Ireland, the Selecçao takes over the head of group F, with 17 points. Two more than Russia, which largely defeated Luxembourg (4-1) on its side last night.


Nothing is done however in these qualifications. For the time being, the Russians played a match less than the Portuguese (7-8) and therefore have all the cards in hand. Portugal, which dreams of the world 2014, must therefore win its last two meetings hoping to see Russia stumble. Not a thin case … Cristiano Ronaldo, who wants a salary increase at the Real, did not spare his efforts last night, proof that the Portuguese jersey is particularly dear to him. His triplet allows him to enter a little more in the history of football Lusitanian. With now 43 goals in national selection, the scorer of Real Madrid dethrones another legend in the person of Eusebio, author of 41 goals. The absolute record, established by Pauleta (47 achievements), still stands. For how long?
