Goal rates the performers on show as Ronaldo salvaged a draw for the Seleccao after Kevin Strootman's opener

  • Beto
    1
    3
    3.00

    Beto

    There was not much Beto could do about Strootman's opener as his defenders allowed the Roma man too much space. Occasionally looked shaky, but did well to deny Huntelaar.

  • Fabio Coentrao
    3

    2.50

    Fabio Coentrao

    Fought out some interesting battles with Lens. Came out on top on the majority of occasions, but beaten for the opener. Occasionally looked frustrated.

  • João Pereira
    2
    2
    3.50

    João Pereira

    Pereira was arguably one of the best players on the pitch with his superb performance down the right. Solid in his defensive duties and just kept on charging forward at every opportunity.

  • Neto
    0
    2
    2.50

    Neto

    Neto did well to shut out Van Persie as the United striker didn't see much of the ball. Made an important interception in the first half after Van der Vaart's shot-cum-cross.

  • Pepe
    5
    3
    3.00

    Pepe

    Strong as ever defensively, yet seemed to lose his head when kicking out at Robben after the latter's dive. Capped a good outing with an assist for the equaliser.

  • Danny
    5
    1
    3.00

    Danny

    Always looked lively and ready to receive the ball. Caused Blind plenty of trouble, but his final ball lacked accuracy.

  • Miguel Veloso
    4
    1
    3.00

    Miguel Veloso

    Veloso was his side's most withdrawn midfielder and did a good job to protect his back four whenever necessary. Booked for a nasty foul on Wijnaldum.

  • Ruben Amorim
    2
    2
    2.50

    Ruben Amorim

    Made a few decent runs forward from midfield but - like his team-mates - often lacked accuracy when it mattered most.

  • Rubén Micael
    1
    4
    2.00

    Rubén Micael

    Should really have levelled the scoring in the first half, but managed to fire wide from close range. Taken off at half-time.

  • Cristiano Ronaldo
    20
    6
    3.50

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    Was his side's main dangerman and salvaged a draw with a calm finish from inside the area. A bit too eager to prove himself every now and then, but there's no arguing that he remains a class act.

  • Hélder Postiga
    1
    5
    1.50

    Hélder Postiga Flop of the Match

    Anonymous performance from the Valencia striker as he failed to trouble Martins Indi and De Vrij. Deservedly axed in the second half.

  • Paulo Machado

    2.50

    Paulo Machado

    Proved to be a fine addition after coming off the bench at half-time. Unlucky not to add his name to the scoresheet after hitting the crossbar.

  • Nélson Oliveira
    2
    2
    2.50

    Nélson Oliveira

    A slight improvement on Postiga, but didn't make much of an impact either. His first touch let him down.

  • Pizzi
    3
    1
    2.50

    Pizzi

    Took Danny's place halfway through the second half and seemed keen to prove a point. Sent in some good crosses from either wing.

  • Michel Vorm
    5
    1
    3.50

    Michel Vorm

    Reacted well early on to keep out Ronaldo's header and once more frustrated the Madrid star halfway through the second half. Could not do anything about the equaliser.

  • Bruno Martins Indi
    4
    0
    3.00

    Bruno Martins Indi

    The Portugal-born defender did well to keep out Postiga with a focused performance. Booked in the first half for a rash challenge on Ronaldo, but made up for it after the break with a superb interception.

  • Daley Blind
    3
    0
    3.00

    Daley Blind

    Was occasionally beaten by Danny as the Zenit man's movement caused him plenty of trouble, while Pereira often doubled up. His intelligent positioning often helped him out and he made some good interceptions, too.

  • Paul Verhaegh
    4
    0
    3.00

    Paul Verhaegh

    Lost sight of Ronaldo once or twice, but did a good job overall on his Oranje debut. Not afraid to charge forward whenever possible. Replaced after the break.

  • Stefan de Vrij
    4
    2
    3.00

    Stefan de Vrij

    De Vrij has been struggling domestically, but led by example in Faro. Hardly troubled in his defensive duties and always comfortable on the ball. Should perhaps have done better for the equaliser.

  • Arjen Robben
    7
    2
    2.50

    Arjen Robben

    Robben struggled to get the better of Pereira and had to track back more often than he would have liked to. Always willing to do his part defensively, but it was not the Bayern star's evening.

  • Kevin Strootman
    7
    0
    3.00

    Kevin Strootman

    Battled hard in midfield as he always made himself available before the break and netted a fine goal to open the scoring. Played a slightly more withdrawn role after the interval.

  • Rafael van der Vaart
    3
    0
    2.50

    Rafael van der Vaart

    Threatened once in the first half after a cross from Verhaegh, but was unable to leave his mark on the game. Taken off at half-time.

  • Jeremain Lens
    4
    1
    2.00

    Jeremain Lens

    Did not have an easy evening against Coentrao, but worked hard and was never afraid to take on his opponent. Set up the opener with some superb work down the right.

  • Robin van Persie
    3
    4
    2.00

    Robin van Persie

    Was kept at bay by Pepe and Neto as he hardly got involved. Taken off around the hour mark following an anonymous performance.

  • Georginio Wijnaldum
    8
    1
    3.50

    Georginio Wijnaldum Top of the Match

    Full of energy in midfield and although he couldn't replicate his scintillating club form at international level, he still put in an encouraging performance as he will not have disappointed Van Gaal.

Substitutions

  • Ricardo van Rhijn
    3
    0
    2.00

    Ricardo van Rhijn

    Replaced Verhaegh after the break and made some good interceptions. Unnecessarily gave away the corner kick that led to the equaliser.

  • Marco van Ginkel
    3
    0
    3.00

    Marco van Ginkel

    Replaced Van der Vaart at half-time and nearly got an assist as he set up Huntelaar inside the area.

  • Klaas-Jan Huntelaar
    3
    0
    2.50

    Klaas-Jan Huntelaar

    Came close to finding the net once after taking Van Persie's place, but was denied by Beto.
