Armenia 1-1 Portugal: Ronaldo to the rescue

YEREVAN, Aug 22 (Reuters) - An outstanding goal from Cristiano Ronaldo rescued a 1-1 draw for Portugal in their Euro 2008 qualifier against a spirited Armenia on Wednesday.

The Manchester United winger robbed an opponent in the 38th

minute and weaved and jinked his way into the penalty area

before sliding the ball into the net.

Robert Arzumanyan had given the home team the lead when he

headed in a corner in the 10th minute.

The draw kept Portugal in the hunt to qualify from a tight

Group A. They remain third with 15 points from eight games, four

points behind Poland and two adrift of Finland.

Armenia are out of the running on eight points.
