Cesc Fabregas Questions Cristiano Ronaldo's World Cup Goals

Cesc Fabregas Questions Cristiano Ronaldo's World Cup Goals

It is likely to be a fourth and final World Cup for the 33-year-old, although he is showing little sign of decline after a fourth Champions League title in five seasons with Real Madrid. As always we welcome your questions, there will be much to break down and discuss after Iran, when Portugal will hopefully be looking forward to a Round of 16 clash against Russian Federation or Uruguay.

Lionel Messi failed in help Argentina bag three points against Croatia as Luka Modric inspired his team to 3-0 victory in the Group D clash on Thursday night, leaving Albiceleste on brink of elimination from the FIFA World Cup 2018.

Contrast that with rival Cristiano Ronaldo, who had a hat trick in his first game and needed only four minutes against Morocco to score his fourth to now become Europe's leading worldwide scorer.

Portugal drew 3-3 against Spain in their opening match last Friday and won 1-0 over Morocco in the Group B second match on Wednesday. "We know that we have to change and get more possession of the ball".

But Portugal survived two Morocco penalty appeals and the north Africans created a number of chances, notably a Younes Belhanda header that was superbly kept out by Rui Patricio.

Ronaldo has netted four times in two matches after scoring a hat-trick against Spain, becoming the second Portuguese player to have scored at least four goals at a single World Cup, following the footsteps of Eusebio in 1966.

It was far from a convincing Portuguese display and Santos admitted nerves played a factor, insisting they can not overlook Iran in their final group game on June 25. "I´m very happy with the performance".

"I think then Messi would go down as one of the greatest in all-time history along with Pele, (Johan) Cruyff and (Franz) Beckenbauer".

I'd like to see Morocco show some pride here and at least get a win for their home faithful and for the fans that made the trek to Russian Federation.

Sports looks at three things we learned today at the World Cup.

"Fraud. He (Messi) has been a fraud internationally since he started his career and we're seeing it really come to the surface now".
