Cristiano Ronaldo and the Portugal team could not triumph in the Irish capital, in a match that had many curious elements and a special gift for a fan, by the Portuguese crack
Portugal did not go from a tie to zero this Thursday against Ireland in qualifying match for the Qatar 2022 World Cup, but that point allows them to lead group A by goal difference compared to Serbia, which they will receive on Sunday in the last date in a duel whose winner will be in Qatar.
But at the end of the ninety minutes, the one who got the best part was an Irish girl, who came down to the pitch and ran into the arms of the player who greeted her, took off her shirt and handed it to her, something that woke up the Joyful crying of the infant, who left happy and even fans encouraged her with the garment that will now be in a special place in their home.
The game also had the interference of another fan on the field of play, who was shot down by the security forces, who had a tough task for the match that took place in Dublin, but that on the field did not transcend on the scoreboard .

The two nations have 17 points, but with a difference of +12 to the +8 of the Serbs, Fernando Santos’ team will be served a draw to seal his ticket to Qatar. In case of defeat, the Portuguese team led by Cristiano Ronaldo would access the playoffs.
Portugal’s performance in Ireland was disappointing in any case, with only two shots between the three sticks. And it could have been worse, after the red card received by Pepe for a double yellow. The 38-year-old center-back will thus miss the decisive clash in three days.
