Ronaldo aging like 'port wine' at fourth World Cup

Ronaldo aging like 'port wine' at fourth World Cup

Federation Internationale de Football Association have denied claims a World Cup referee asked Cristiano Ronaldo for his shirt during Portugal's win over Morocco.

He has now scored Portugal's last five World Cup goals, while his bullet header in the fourth minute was his 85th goal for his country, meaning he is now Europe's all-time leading male goalscorer.

Ronaldo is now tied with Denis Cheryshev on three goals at the World Cup after Cheryshev scored in Tuesday's win over Egypt in Russia's second game.

"He is constantly evolving, contradictorily to the other players", said Santos.

The Real Madrid star scored a stunning hat trick for Portugal in their Group B opener and his celebration caused a bit of a stir.

Day 7 of the World Cup threw up plenty of talking points as three teams staked their place in the round of sixteen.

Former Israeli Cabinet Minister Charged With Spying for Iran
In order to obtain information, Segev maintained contact with Israeli citizens in the defense, security, and diplomatic sectors. Israel's internal security service has indicted one of the country's former cabinet minister on suspicion of spying for Iran .


Ronaldo is intent on leaving his mark on this tournament, two years after helping Portugal to a first major title at Euro 2016. "There are no words to describe him", said Portugal team-mate Bernardo Silva.

The FC crew examine how Cristiano Ronaldo has adjusted his game with age to remain one of the world's elite players.

That is the message from Patrice Evra, who played alongside the Portugal national team captain for three and a half seasons at Premier League club Manchester United.

Morocco made fools of those expecting an easy victory for Portugal. "We gave it everything but you saw (the ball) just didn't want to go in", he added. "We knew how to suffer".

"Nobody is winning easily at the World Cup, we've had it as hard as we thought", Hierro explained in a post-match interview with Telecinco. You could argue that Ronaldo is the greater goal scorer even though their numbers are similar, but there is no contest when it comes to who is the best footballer.
