Epic Goals Scored and Pitch Invader in Armenia vs Portugal Encounter

Both sides had their share of spectacular moments in this Euro 2016 qualifier.

Marcos Pizzelli of Armenia opened proceedings with a superb free kick in the 14th minute.

Portugal equalised through a Ronaldo penalty after Moutinho was brought down, with the end of the first half being heralded by a pitch invader who hilariously left a trail of stewards in his wake.

Ronaldo scored his second to put the Portuguese in front, and the current World Player of the Year earned his hat-trick three minutes later with this absolute whopper of a strike.

Tiago got a second yellow and was sent off, and with Armenia pegging one back through Mkoyan, Portugal were under serious pressure. They managed to hold on though to win 3-2 and remain top of Group I. Armenia remain bottom on just one point.
