Ronaldo won the opponent’s goal.
Portugal did not have a good start in the Qatar World Cup qualifiers. Despite winning, Cristiano Ronaldo could not win the hearts of the supporters.
Portugal have started the 2022 World Cup qualifiers with a 1-0 home win over Azerbaijan. But this goal was forgotten by the opponent — that is, a suicide goal.
In the 37th minute of the match, Portugal took the lead through a suicide goal by Maxim Medvedev. By capitalizing on this goal, they finally won.
Medvedev had to digest a suicide goal as compensation for a misunderstanding with goalkeeper Shahruddin Mahamadaliyev.
The match was not held in Portugal due to the outbreak of corona. Portugal managed to pick up 3 full points from the match held at Juventus Stadium.
Portugal dominated the whole match. Ronaldo himself has managed to put 3 shots in the goal post with 8 shots.
Throughout the match, the Portuguese players took 29 shots aimed at the goal post of Azerbaijan. They were able to put 14 shots in the post.
Ronaldo got a chance to score once from a free kick.
At the end of the match, the Juventus star could not take advantage of that opportunity.
Ronaldo was disappointed with the strength of the opposing goalkeeper.
Azerbaijan goalkeeper Mahamadaliyev also blocked the efforts of Bruno Fernandez and Huao Felix.
Although Ronaldo did not score a goal against Azerbaijan, he did not play badly.
Juventus forward created 3 chances by getting the ball 59 times.
However, Ronaldo had to return to his club ground twice in the last four matches with disappointment. Juventus beat Benevento 1-0 on Sunday.
Ronaldo wants 7 more goals to break the record of highest goals in international football. Former Iran striker Ali Daiyi tops the list with 109 goals.
