Portugal Vs. Bosnia, Euro 2012 Qualifying Playoffs: Ronaldo Restores Portugal's Lead

Cristiano Ronaldo has put Portugal 3-1 up with another great goal, Moutinho playing him a pass as he surged in from the left flank, rounded Begovic, and put the ball into the empty net. He made it look easy - a remarkably calm finish from the winger, who has been superb tonight - a far cry from the player we saw during the Carlos Queiroz regime.

And you can call that game over now, because to make matters worse, Lulic has been sent off for his trash-talking towards the referee. Bosnia might've had a faint hope with eleven players, but with ten, they've no change. Portugal, and Ronaldo, are going to Euro 2012, and they have the Madeira fruitcake to thank for getting them there.
