Cristiano Ronaldo ended his season by scoring Monday in Portugal's 1-0 win in an international friendly over a Croatia team featuring 16-year-old prospect Alen Halilovic making his debut. Ronaldo scored in the 36th minute with an angled left-foot shot into the bottom right hand corner of the goal. It was the 28-year-old Portugal winger's 39th international strike. Still, the match might be remembered as the night the highly touted Halilovic started his international career. The Dinamo Zagreb midfielder stepped on to the stage as a second-half substitute, and showed his potential by firing a left-foot shot just wide of the goal in the 87th minute. The match marked Portugal's national holiday and was played in Geneva because the Swiss city has a large Portuguese population.
