Ronaldo scores two against Republic of Ireland in Portugal’s final Euro 2024 warm-up match

Cristiano Ronaldo scored two brilliant goals as Portugal secured a 3-0 win over the Republic of Ireland in a friendly to ensure their preparations for Euro 2024 are complete.

The 39-year-old had earlier hit the post with a deflected free-kick, but it was his 129th and 130th international goals and his 207th cap.

Superb goals from the Al Nasr forward in the 50th and 60th minutes, combined with Joao Felix’s first-half opener, gave Ireland a comfortable victory in Aveiro and brought the second phase of John O’Shea’s audition for the Ireland managerial position to a solemn close.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo will be looking to continue his goal-scoring form in Germany this summer as he aims to win European Championship for the second time since lifting the trophy in 2016.

Roberto Martinez’s side open their Euro 2024 Group F campaign against Czech Republic in Leipzig on Tuesday 18 June, before taking on Turkey and Georgia.
