Belgium? The World's Best? Portugal Begs to Differ

Cristiano Ronaldo & Co defeated FIFA's top-ranked club in what was a rather intense clash for a friendly.

Portugal may not have the same acclaim -- or depth, really -- but they got the job done, knocking off Belgium, 2-1.

It's gotta be a morale booster with Euro 2016 just around the corner.

In Group F with Austria, Hungary, and upstart Iceland, the Selecção stand an excellent chance of zipping into the brackets. A match like this confirms it.

Nani will be one reason why oddsmakers will fancy Portugal's chances this summer:

Smooth dude.

Portuguese captain -- and Messi’s only rival -- Ronaldo almost always has a knack of popping important goals, so this one was a signal-sender:.

Dude's butter from point blank. And don't take that for granted.

Romelu Lukaku has been stunning everyone with his performance, and he stunned Portugal, too:

It was an equal rival to Ronaldo’s header just before.

But that was all.
