Out in Zurich, Cristiano Ronaldo left it until the last possible moment to steal Mohamed Salah’s thunder as two stoppage time goals from the Real Madrid goliath saw Portugal wrest a 2-1 victory over Egypt from the very gaping maw of defeat.

Salah broke the deadlock in the 55th minute with his 12th goal in his last 10 games, clipping a precise finish past Beto from the edge of the Portuguese box…

However, the introduction of Ricardo Quaresma seemed to light a fire under the ‘home’ side, with a couple of pinpoint deliveries onto the Swarfega-smeared bonce of Senhor Ronaldo providing the catalyst for the injury-time turnaround.

The first came in the 92nd minute…

Then, in the 94th, Quaresma repeated the feat from a right-wing freekick, hanging a cross perfectly for Ronaldo to ram home another iron-necked header and seal the win…

That brace saw Ronaldo grab his 80th and 81st goals for Portugual and thus move up into third place on the list of all-time top international goalscorers, nestled in behind Ferenc Puskas (84 goals) and Ali Daei (109).

The man is a machine.
