World Cup Cristiano Ronaldo victor against Morocco

Cristiano Ronaldo in training

Ronaldo, with his fourth goal of the tournament, is now the most prolific European goal scorer at global level.

Portugal's four points from their first two games mean they, too, are tantalisingly close to a place in the next round. La Roja will now face Morocco in the final group game for a chance to reach the round of 16.

Social media speculated that the goatee had something to do with a gesture he made after scoring the first goal against Spain, when he stroked his chin.

The Real Madrid star followed up his stunning hat-trick against Spain with the victor in a 1-0 win over the North Africans that left his coach purring with pride.

Suarez tapped in midway through the first half after keeper Mohammed Al-Owais failed to grab the ball on a corner.

Among players from all continents, Ronaldo now trails only Ali Daei, who scored 109 goals for Iran from 1993 to 2006.

The inmate was shackled and in handcuffs, and police believe the inmate used one of the deputies' guns to shoot them. Sunday in Kansas City, Kansas, for the deputies, who both were parents.

They scraped through the group stage with three draws, then beat Croatia in extra-time, Poland on penalties, Wales with two second-half goals and France with another extra-time victor.

The 33-year-old Portuguese forward raised a few eyebrows after putting the European champions in front against Spain a game that ultimately ended 3-3 with the Real Madrid man bagging yet another hat-trick.

After two very different opening World Cup matches, the FC guys talk about Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's differing roles for their national teams.

With three points from two matches, Iran still have a chance of qualifying if they can get a result against Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal on Monday. Whilst Iran had a goal ruled out thanks to VAR.

Spain coach Fernando Hierro defended their performance for victory over World Cup opponents Iran.

And he says the Danes are better team than world No.7 France, who pipped Australia 2-1 in the tournament opener. I'm not so sure they can, I am not sure if they are so strong defensively, okay when you're brining on the likes of Higuain, you are strong, I'm just not sure defensively Argentina are strong enough, I don't think we'll see Messi lifting the trophy.
