IT looked like it was going to be a dark night at Windsor Park after Bruno Alves scored against Northern Ireland.
But Gareth McAuley rose above the Portuguese defence and fired in a header to give Northern Ireland a way back into the game.
The Windsor Park stadium started to rock in support of Michael O’Neill’s men.
However, Portugal lost the plot when Hilder Postiga head–butted Northern Ireland’s goal scorer and was given the red card.
And to make matter worse, Ronaldo was furious at the referee and got a yellow card to talking out of school.
