World Cup Update: Spain vs Portugal, How It Went Down

  • First crunch match of Russia 2018 lives up to expectations
  • Hat-trick for Ronaldo, brace for Costa

  • Cristiano Ronaldo was Portugal’s savior once again as he scored a hat-trick to secure a draw against Spain. It was the Real Madrid man’s highest goal tally in a FIFA World Cup™ match.
    He kicked off with an early penalty, deceiving Nacho inside the box to win it and then stroking the ball home from the spot. Fortunately for *La Roja*, Diego Costa was also at his bristling best, getting the better of the Portugal defense to level the scores. Isco then thumped a rasping drive against the bar. Yet while Spain dominated possession they were vulnerable on the counter, and it was on the break that Ronaldo put his side back in front, firing in a drive that David de Gea was unable to hold.  
    Costa scored his second equalizer of the night just after the restart before Nacho atoned for his penalty-box trip on Ronaldo by powering a superb half-volley in off the post, his first goal for Spain. As the clock ticked down, however, Gerard Pique brought down CR7 just outside the box, with the Portugal star dusting himself down to complete the scoring with a sublime free-kick.
  • The Task is set, the bar is set, it's now left for Lionel Messi to respond en-frantically.
