Cristiano Ronaldo Ready To Help Portugal Take On Norway

Portugal is counting on Cristiano Ronaldo to maintain his prolific scoring run when they meet Norway on Saturday in their Euro 2012 qualifier.

Coach Paulo Bento has engineered a remarkable turnaround, improving the side’s morale after replacing the sacked Carlos Queiroz in September and is heavily relying on Ronaldo to deliver.

Bento told a news conference : “It is a key opportunity to go first in the group,” .

“We are under pressure but it is a much better kind of pressure than what we had back in October.”

Ronaldo has been on fire at Real Madrid this season, netting 40 goals to set a La Liga record, and the Portugal captain revealed that he had one last job to do before going on holiday.

“The season is not over yet. I have an important game to play for Portugal and I want to win it,” he said.
