Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal Advance
Cristiano Ronaldo busted out of his slump in a big way yesterday – as Portugal beat Holland 2-1 and advanced to the quarterfinals of Euro 2012. The Portugal captain had been held scoreless in the team’s first two group games.
Ronaldo is the 7th player to score in 3 Euros, joining only Ibrahimovic, Henry, Smicer, Postiga, Klinsmann & Nuno Gomes. A fine example of his staying power and consistency over the past decade for both club and country – even though he is still just 27 years old.
