  Ronaldo scores, Portugal eases past New Zealand 4-0 Cristiano Ronaldo's 75th international goal helped lift Portugal to a comfortable 4-0 win over New Zealand on Saturday and into the Confederations Cup semifinals. Ronaldo scored with a penalty kick in the 33rd minute, four minutes before Bernardo Silva slipped a shot into an unguarded goal.
