Goal machine Cristiano Ronaldo Euro 2020 qualifiers, playing his first match after a long time from the European champions Portugal team, could not show off in the match. The match between Portugal and Ukraine left on a non-goal match.

Ronaldo did not play any match on behalf of the national team since Portugal lost to Uruguay after the 2018 World Cup. The Euro 2016 champion, Portugal, was left out of group B in their own field.

Ukraine's goalkeeper Andy Pyatov failed Ronaldo's two attempts in the first half and also with one hand best defense on Andre Silva's effort. With the help of Pyatov, Ukraine was successful in collecting a score against a tough opponent. Now Portugal's second match will take place from Serbia on Monday.

Now the pressure to qualify over and defend the title has now increased over Portugal. Ukraine has to face Luxembourg, which is the first place in the group. Luxembourg defeated Lithuania 2-1.
