OPINION| WCP PLAYOFFS: Portugal's Automatic Qualifications Miss Could Be A Blessing In Disguise.

Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal passed up a once in a lifetime chance to fit the bill for the following year's World cup occurring in Qatar after their 2-1 loss because of Serbia in Lisbon. Be that as it may, they actually have a possibility of coming to the competition dependent on the result of their season finisher planned for March one year from now.

Portugal took the early lead in the second minutes of the game through Lille Midfielder, Renato Sanches.

The splendid Midfielder had the option to take his risks perfectly after a guarded blunder from one of Serbia's most confided in safeguards, in any case, Dusan Tadic draw the game level in the 33rd moment, after his redirected shot got off a protector bringing about Rui Patricio's erroneous conclusion as the ball rolled gradually into the rear of the net to end the primary half at 1-1.

Many possibilities were made in the second half with Portugal passing up on a magnificent chance after Renato Sanches uprooted a safeguard yet neglected to lay out up Ronaldo for an objective, as his shot was too frail to even think about creating any significant effect, Serbia then again might have covered the game even before the 70th moment in the wake of having their objective precluded for an offside.

One of the most illuminate aggressors in Europe right now; Aleksander Mitrovic turned into the saint of the night regardless of coming on as a substitute, as he headed a splendid ball past Rui Patricio after a great cross from their chief Dusan Tadic. Portugal and Cristiano Ronaldo were left crushed, as in addition to the fact that they were beaten at home should contend with any semblance of Italy, Poland, Russia, Czech Republic, and so on in the end of the season games.

Albeit many may believe Portugal's programmed capability miss is a major hit to the country, and the five time Ballon d'Or champ, I figure it could end up being a surprisingly positive turn of events to Cristiano Ronaldo who will have an additional a chance to expand his worldwide appearances, and perhaps his goalscoring records. Everybody knows how hungry the Manchester United genius is for objectives and his heavenly record in the end of the season games for Portugal will likewise be an additional benefit.

While other Portugal stars will be fretting over nothing, Cristiano Ronaldo will consider this to be a road to keep his objective count broadened. Ultimately, this could be a chance for him to additional show the whole world that he never surrenders when he focuses on something. After the loss to Serbia, the productive goalscorer made an Instagram post, and gave his nation and his allies the full affirmation that they will be in Qatar for the World Cup one year from now.
