Cristiano Ronaldo was on the score-sheet as European champions Portugal beat Israel 4-0 on Wednesday in their final warm-up for the defence of their title. Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes bagged twice as Ronaldo and Joao Cancelo added for a comfortable win in Lisbon.
Ronaldo`s 44th-minute strike was his 104th international goal in 175 matches and leaves him five short of the record held by Iran`s Ali Daei. “We put things right from the match against Spain,” Portugal coach Fernando Santos said regarding the 0-0 draw with Spain in their previous match in Madrid.
“I know what we have to do to win, and I have great confidence in this team,” he said. Portugal are in the tricky looking Group F at the Euros with Hungary their first opponent on June 15 before they take on Germany four days later and then the reigning World Cup holders France June 23.
