Jeff Hendrick almost helps stop Cristiano Ronaldo from making history … but not entirely

After just 10 minutes, Cristiano Ronaldo had the opportunity to write another piece of history.

The chance to become the greatest international goalscorer in history with his 110th goal.

Newcastle United’s Jeff Hendrick had given him the chance and brought down Bruno Fernandes, now Cristano Ronaldo’s Man Utd colleague.

VAR was called and declared a penalty. Imagine VAR helping to assign a penalty to a Newcastle player …

In the World Cup qualifier on Wednesday evening, Portugal met the Republic of Ireland, the home team as favorites to win.

Cristiano Ronaldo stepped out to make history only to see young goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu make an extraordinary save, one of many on the night.

Remarkably, Ireland fed on that penalty and while Portugal continued to dominate possession (72% final) and shots (29v6), the visitors had their own problems during the break and had chances to score themselves.

Newcastle midfielder Hendrick and his international team-mates made a great shift in preventing Portugal from getting too close to goal too often (only seven on goal that night despite dominating possession) and then received shortly after Halftime their reward when Egan gave Ireland a shock lead.

A brilliant defensive team continued after the break, Ireland continued to threaten during the break and just when it looked like they were going to reach the finish line, Portugal and Cristiano Ronaldo met.

A cross from the right, hit by a perfect header from Ronaldo, Portugal’s level and Cristiano Ronaldo now with 110 international goals, more than anyone has ever scored for his country.

It was better for the home side to come, because in the sixth minute of stoppage time a cross from Jeff Hendrick’s right was tiredly cleared back to the right, another cross and with the last ball contact an even better header from Cristiano Ronaldo scored 111 international goals for the Man Utd players and a 2-1 win for Portugal.

Many of the Irish players fell on the turf in disbelief, while for Newcastle fans this has all felt like a rehearsal for the nine days when United visited Old Trafford to celebrate Ronaldo’s second home debut after his shock transfer form Juventus.

After a shocking transfer window, in stark contrast to Man Utd’s, Newcastle fans will almost believe to a man / woman that loss and a VAR penalty (for a fourth consecutive Premier League game) are very likely , although she will be leading until the 89th minute with a goal conceded, shouldn’t be as much on the cards.

Elsewhere, two more Newcastle United players were on duty for their countries on Tuesday evening.

Fabian Schar played in the middle of three central defenders and helped Switzerland to a 2-1 win over Greece in a friendly.

In the meantime Denmark outclassed Scotland 2-0 and it could / should have been more, the Danes are playing their first game since leaving the European Championship in England.

Denmark scored two goals in the first 15 minutes but had a shock 10 minutes from time and apparently went to victory. It took a world class save from Kasper Schmeichel to fend off an excellent low left foot from Ryan Fraser. The Newcastle player has a decent game playing the full 90 minutes.

Full schedule of international matches in September with Newcastle United players. Most of the games are World Cup qualifiers as well as some friendlies.
