Portugal clinched a 2-0 victory over Iceland on Sunday, led by captain Cristiano Ronaldo, to cap off a flawless Euro 2024 qualifying campaign under Robert Martinez.
Portugal dominated Group J, securing 10 wins out of 10 matches while scoring an impressive 36 goals and allowing only two.
Ronaldo, 38, contributed significantly to the team’s success, netting 10 goals and providing two assists.
Ronaldo, Portugal’s all-time leading goalscorer, took to social media to celebrate this momentous achievement.
Sharing a team photo, he captioned the post: “Historic sweepstakes, 100% winning! Congratulations Portugal”. His words echoed the sentiments of the entire nation, basking in the glory of this remarkable feat.
Manchester United playmaker Bruno Fernandes took center stage in Lisbon on Sunday, breaking the deadlock with a fine low finish from the edge of the 18-yard box in the 37th minute.
Braga winger Ricardo Horta continued Portugal’s dominance in the second half, tapping in a rebound after Ronaldo’s attempt for his 11th goal of the campaign was denied by Iceland keeper Hakon Valdimarsson.
Having secured the top spot in Group J, Portugal will be among the top-seeded teams when the Euro 2024 draw takes place on December 2.
