Things went horribly, horribly wrong for Rio Ave striker Helder Guedes in his desperate attempt to emerge as the hero during his side's Portuguese Primeira Liga match against Tondela on Monday night.

Out in Zurich, Cristiano Ronaldo left it until the last possible moment to steal Mohamed Salah's thunder as two stoppage time goals from the Real Madrid goliath saw Portugal wrest a 2-1 victory over Egypt from the very gaping maw of defeat.

Salah broke the deadlock in the 55th minute with his 12th goal in his last 10 games, clipping a precise finish past Beto from the edge of the Portuguese box.

Pacos de Ferreira pulled off a shock 1-0 win over Porto in the Portuguese top flight on Sunday, chiefly by employing every spoiling tactic known to man.

Moreirense earned themselves a valuable point in their ongoing fight against relegation by battling to a 0-0 draw with Primeira Liga leaders Porto on Tuesday evening.
