THE BIGGER PICTURE: The goal was Ronaldo's second of the game, as he opened the scoring early on when Nuno Mendes' header landed perfectly for him to nudge home from close range. The 38-year-old now has 124 goals from 199 appearances for Portugal.
WHAT NEXT FOR RONALDO? Ronaldo will now return to Saudi Arabia to continue the season with his new side Al-Nassr, before returning to Euro 2024 qualifying action with Portugal in June when they take on Bosnia-Herzegovina.
