Being the first priority of the national team is not everyone’s cup of tea. The match is almost getting slipped from the hands of Portugal.

But in the 88th minute, a cross comes in from the middle of the pitch and Inacio head the ball down to Ronaldo’s path and he didn’t make any mistake to slot it home.
