Portugal 1-1 Netherlands: Ronaldo rescues sloppy Seleccao

Cristiano Ronaldo's late goal earned Portugal a 1-1 draw with Netherlands at the Estadio Algarve on Wednesday night, thus denying the Dutch a first win in the fixture since 1991.

The Real Madrid ace was on hand to finish from close range three minutes from time, cancelling out Kevin Strootman's first-half strike.

It had looked set to be a frustrating night for the hosts, but their reliable talisman grabbed a deserved leveller just when it seemed all hope was lost.

The story is too old to be commented.
