LEIRIA, Portugal (AP) — First-half goals from Nani and Cristiano Ronaldo gave Portugal a 2-1 win over Belgium in a friendly game Tuesday that was moved from Brussels after attacks in the Belgian capital killed 35 people.
Nani broke down the left flank and curled a right-foot shot beyond the reach of goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois in the 20th, and five minutes before the interval Ronaldo got his 56th international goal with a glancing header.
Romelu Lukaku pulled one back for a lackluster Belgium side with a header in the 62nd minute as a series of substitutions weakened the home team’s first-half dominance.
The game was switched to Leiria, in central Portugal, from the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels because of security concerns following airport and subway attacks there.
