Ronaldo beat Egypt in the last minutes with two goals

Egypt appeared on their way to an international friendly win against Portugal on Friday, but Cristiano Ronaldo scored two late goals in injury time to complete an unlikely comeback..

Portugal’s captain, Cristiano Ronaldo, scored two stoppage-time goals to steal a 2-1 win over Egypt after Mohamed Salah had given the African side the lead in an entertaining World Cup warm-up in Switzerland on Friday. Salah scored with a thumping drive to put Egypt ahead early in the second half.

However, Ronaldo refused to be upstaged and he sneaked in behind his marker to head in Ricardo Quaresma’s cross in the 92nd minute. Not content with that, Ronaldo scored again with another header, once more from a Quaresma pass, with the final move of the game. There was initial confusion as the referee consulted the video assistant referee (VAR) system for a possible offside before allowing the goal.
