Cristiano adds and continues - AS.com


Like Madrid and Barça, Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi are communicating vessels. What one does affects the other. If the Argentine, at 34, exhibited himself in Pamplona against Latvia with five goals, the Portuguese, at 37, led the victory of his team against Switzerland in the Nations League. If he didn’t make it to five, it was a miracle. It was left at two, a number too deadly for him.

Contrary to their customs and traditions, Suiza has established itself in the front row of national team football with more workers than goldsmiths. Based on working more clay than chocolate. With players based in the big leagues but without any renowned stars. Seferovic, Xhaka, Shaqiri and Sow, among others, have made the Swiss team a rocky team, which bites in all areas of the field two areas and against which it is not comfortable to play. With that attacking quartet, Switzerland began dominating the match and was even able to get ahead on the scoreboard through Seferovic, but the VAR annulled the former Real’s goal for a handball prior to the shot. It was the key play of the match. From that moment, Switzerland disappeared.

Little was known about Portugal until the play of the goal, after a quarter of an hour. Cristiano launched a free kick on the edge of the area that Kobel rejected as best he could and Willan Carvalho, the smartest, pushed the rejection to the back of the net without any opposition. A blow for a Switzerland that until then had dominated and that collapsed in a dramatic way. Ten minutes later, Cristiano scored his 116th goal for Portugal at the end of a counterattack in which he was assisted by Diogo Jota and scored 117th after taking advantage of a Kobel rebound that fell at his feet with the goal already defeated. The Portuguese star had two very clear chances to go into the break with a hat-trick but his shots grazed the post both times, which is why he went into the break angry.

Cristiano’s hunger did not stop when he returned from the locker room. In fact, he scored another goal in another counter directed by Otavio and Diogo Jota but the latter was offside at the beginning of the play and the goal was disallowed. The one that did go up to the scoreboard was Cancelo’s a few minutes lateryes Bernando enabled him with a pass to the back of the defense and the City player cut Kobel out of place to end up pushing the ball into an empty goal.

Cristiano had two more opportunities but both crashed with Kobel. First, in a foul that was previously designated as a penalty, but that was outside the area. The Swiss deflected what was going to be a great goal with the tips of his fingers to a corner. Then he stopped a half-scissors at close range after a corner kick. And it is that Cristiano, despite his two goals, made the Swiss goalkeeper the best player in Switzerland.
