Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo, has promised that Fernando Santos’s men will book their qualification for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar after a draw with Ireland.
Ronaldo said this while reacting to Portugal’s World Cup qualifier 0-0 draw with Ireland at the Aviva Stadium on Thursday. The result against Ireland means Portugal still top Group A with 17 points from seven games. Behind Portugal is second place Serbia with 17 points from the same number of games.
Portugal will now host Serbia on Sunday in their next qualifier. And Ronaldo believes with the help of home fans, Portugal will beat Serbia and secure qualification for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Ronaldo wrote on Instagram after the game;
“It’s always difficult to play in Ireland, but the point earned leaves all goals at our mercy.
On Sunday, in front of our audience and in our house, we will stamp our presence at the World Cup in Qatar! Go ahead, @portugal,”
