Cristiano Ronaldo will score against Netherlands, says Rui Patricio

Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio has declared that he is sure that team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo will score in Sunday's match against Netherlands.

The Real Madrid star has come under fire after failing to impress in the Seleccao's first two matches at Euro 2012, missing clear chances on goal.

He has yet to find the back of the net in the tournament, but Patricio believes that the 27-year-old will break his duck in the decisive match against the Oranje.

"Cristiano always plays well," he told Uefa's official website. "Things not always go the best way, also when it comes to finishing, but only those who play miss chances.

"Still, Cristiano had an excellent game, he tried hard and I believe that he will score on Sunday already."

Questioned about Netherlands, Patricio said that he trusts Portugal's chances for the match despite acknowledging that the Oranje are a tough side to beat.

"We will have to approach this game the same way we did against Germany and Denmark," the Sporting Lisbon goalkeeper continued.

"We will have to give our all, we will need to be aggressive and do everything that we have done so far. We will have to believe until the end that we can beat Netherlands.

"They are a very strong team, with excellent players and great attackers.

"Our main goal has always been to reach the quarter-finals. We know we have a very hard game ahead, but we will do everything to progress."
