Football legend Christiano Ronaldo could write another chapter of football history at Josy Barthel stadium on Sunday afternoon: scoring his 100th international goal.
Portugal's national team has arrived in Luxembourg and were training for their European qualifier game against Luxembourg in Bissen this Saturday.
Portugal is yet to qualify for the Euro 2020 so their task for Sunday is a simple one: they need a victory against Luxembourg to secure to entry ticket for the European championship. They also qualify if Serbia fail to beat Ukraine.
34-year-old Ronaldo will aim to reach a historic landmark in Luxembourg: his 100th international goal. He has scored 98 goals for Portugal in 163 games, including 13 in his last seven. Only Iran's Ali Daei has scored more international goals, with 109.
It will be a tough game for Luxembourg - Portugal have lost just three of their last 37 matches, winning 22. Luxembourg are on a six-match losing streak, their worst sequence since a run of seven defeats in 2015–16.
Luxembourg coach Luc Holtz said: ”Many Portuguese live in Luxembourg. The Josy Barthel stadium has been sold out for a long time. It will be a festival of football. We are not afraid of the European and Nations League champions. I promised Serbia that we will score a point [laughs]. We will try not to play as defensively as in the first half in Belgrade.”
