Rivals Spain and Portugal in epic Group G contest

GETTYCristiano Ronaldo transfer news Real Madrid could opt to sell their star man

He also became the first player to score in eight major tournaments in succession after hitting the target in each of the last four European Championships.

The publication said Ronaldo, who plays for Real Madrid, agreed to the suspended sentence just hours before Portugal was set to face Spain in his first match of the World Cup.

The little Argentinian has been an integral part of one of the greatest football teams of all-time, moulded by coach Pep Guardiola.

The 33-year-old has struggled to produce his glittering best in World Cups, with only three goals from three previous tournaments, against Ghana, North Korea and Iran. Three more goals followed at AFCON 2010, including the victor against Nigeria in the semifinals. The Atletico Madrid player scored a brace against the Portuguese and his performance was excellent for Spain.

A free kick against Mali at AFCON 2012 was then followed by a goal against Niger at the 2013 tournament. The fragility both between the goalposts and individual mistakes in the backline should be fixed, if La Roja are to go all the way to the World Cup trophy.

Drake 'I'm Upset' video features 'Degrassi' reunion
This is one high school reunion you'd probably want to attend. By Thursday afternoon, it had more than 1 million views.

"We are not going to deviate one iota from our footballing concepts and what we've been doing for a long time now", the distinguished former Spain defender Hierro said. We are not the favourites so we will try to do our best.

"It is a record in my sports career but what is most important for me is what the team has done", Ronaldo said.

Against Portugal however - or rather, against Cristiano Ronaldo - De Gea crouched down to catch a rather speculative long-range effort from the Real Madrid forward and fumbled the ball.

Spain thought they had won the game but Portugal had other ideas as Ronaldo provided the ideal end to another extraordinary night in his career. It was a very competitive match.
