Watch: Cristiano Ronaldo puts Portugal up 2–0 on Belgium

Tuesday March 29th, 2016

Cristiano Ronaldo, at it again, headed home to give Portugal a 2–0 lead in a friendly against Belgium on Tuesday.

Off a set piece, Ronaldo burst into the box and leapt onto the end of a well-placed cross from Joao Mario, calmly flicking the ball into the opposite corner of the goal before goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois could react.

The goal was his Portugal-record 56th in 125 senior international appearances, and it came in a match that was moved from Brussels to Leiria, Portugal in wake of last week’s terrorist attacks.

Both teams are tuning up for Euro 2016, with Belgium in Group E with Italy, Sweden and Republic of Ireland and Portugal in Group F with Iceland, Austria and Hungary.
