Cristiano Ronaldo Breaks Record for Most International Goals by European Player

Cristiano Ronaldo Breaks Record for Most International Goals by European Player

Best of a bland match.

Diego Costa scored the only goal for Spain after 54 minutes when he was tackled by Ramin Rezaeian, only for the ball to ricochet back off Costa's shin and into the back of the net.

That's all before the second round of matches continues with three more contests, including the return of Cristiano Ronaldo's thighs, Luis Suarez's Uruguay and 2010 world champions Spain.

Ronaldo after the game against Morocco cleared the air concerning his facial hair, noting it was simply for the good luck.

It took just four minutes in Portugal's second match for Ronaldo to score his fourth goal of Russian Federation 2018. Now, if Iran loses, then Spain and Portugal make it out without an issue.

Mehdi Benatia forced a smart low save from Rui Patricio at a corner for Morocco before Hakim Ziyach skipped his way into the Portugal area, his goal-bound effort blocked by an outstretched leg.

That result also saw Russian Federation advance, with the hosts and Uruguay to meet on Tuesday morning to decide who tops Group A.

Ronaldo bagged a staggering 15 goals in European World Cup qualifying as Portugal reeled off nine consecutive wins to seal a fifth consecutive appearance. It sets up a fantastic final day of Group B, with three teams alive to advance.

With Spain and Portugal on four points, Iran just behind on three, and Morocco on zero points, Hierro said the group had proved one of the trickiest ones. However, an audacious Iran did not let the Europian giants get away with a barrage of goals.

Costa, who scored twice in a 3-3 opening draw with Portugal in Sochi, courted controversy early in the Group B encounter when he stepped on the toes of Iran 'keeper Ali Beiranvand. Both matches can also been seen on Fubo.tv. The former forward top-scored at the 1968 Olympics with seven goals, including a brace in a win in the bronze-medal match against Mexico.

"They have already dropped points and there isn't much scope for them to miss out on more opportunities, so we expect Argentina to be very aggressive, and since they do have the best player in the world, we are aware that they can make life rather hard for us", the Croatia midfielder said ahead of the Group D clash at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium. "If we have the possibility of scoring, we will try our best to do it".

The victor of this match will be guaranteed a spot in the knockout stages. A win for the Danes, who won 1-0 over Peru, will give them six points. Our first aim is to get out the group stage because there are very unpredictable results.
