Cristiano Ronaldo wins games on his own

When John Mc Enroe arrived on the world stage at Wimbledon to challenge Swedish great Bjorn Borg for the world No.1 spot he quickly became the Superbrat in British media

Time for the likes of Griezmann, Pogba and Messi to step up and take center stage?

Portugal resumed their 2018 World Cup campaign, following the dramatic 3-3 draw against Spain, by beating Morocco thanks to the man himself. It's great news for subscribers of the theory that for a World Cup to be successful, you need the host nation to progress.

One person wrote: 'Messi does photoshoots but Ronaldo grows an actual goatee hahah [sic]'.

After the original bust of the Real Madrid and Portugal forward was revealed a year ago to commemorate Madeira Airport's rebranding as Cristiano Ronaldo International Airport, sculptor Emanuel Santos described his work as "a matter of taste".

"Football is not an individual sport, it is a team sport". Just why was Ronaldo stood sideways during the national anthem?

Portugal's final match in Group B is against Iran at Mordovia Arena in Saransk on Monday.

A defensively-minded Iran may pose some hard challenges for Spain compared to a Portuguese side that played an open, attacking game, but it may not be enough. They are well organised with a lot of technical quality.

That should make it an easier day for Suarez, who has 51 global goals and is Uruguay's all-time top scorer.

On Friday, the Portugal captain celebrated his opening goal against Spain with a "goat beard" brush to the chin, a gesture which was interpreted by some as a dig at the Argentinian forward.

Herve Renard's men face a monumental challenge, with games to come against Portugal and Spain.

"It is a privilege for us to have Ronaldo in our team".

The five-time world player of the year bagged a sublime treble against Spain in the heat of Sochi on Friday in Russian Federation 2018's stand-out match so far, the 51st of his glittering career. "He has to help us as best as he can". It's good to play alongside him.

"Look at all the surprises: Mexico, Iceland, Senegal, Japan". It would require some special effort from Saudi Arabia to outsmart Uruguay - if they still believe that they can better their 1994 record, when they finished in the round of 16.

The Moroccans went down 1-0 to Iran as after starting brightly, they faded and then scored an own goal in injury time to gift the Iranians the three points.
