  • Spain Coach Hierro When You Face Ronaldo Anything Can Happen

Portugal were awarded a free-kick in the 87th minute, which Ronaldo lined up to take with his usual dramatic flair.

One sheriff’s deputy killed, another critical after shooting outside Kansas courthouse
The deputies haven't been identified yet, but we know a male deputy died and a female deputy is in critical condition. Wyandotte County sheriff's deputy Patrick Rohrer was shot and killed in Kansas City, Kansas, June 15, 2018 .

Portugal are looking to become the fourth side to win back-to-back European Championships and World Cup after West Germany, France and Spain. Spain scored twice to retake the lead in the second half, but Ronaldo scored from a spectacular free kick late in the match to salvage a point for his team, marking another historic outing for the Real Madrid legend.

'Ronaldo has a habit of throwing himself to the ground'.

Spain nearly took the lead when Isco crashed a shot against underside of crossbar but Ronaldo put Portugal back in front just before the break, although Spain goalkeeper David de Gea will be haunted by the terrible way he spilled a shot he should have gathered. The third was a magisterial free kick that disappeared into the top corner, leaving De Gea flat-footed.

The 33-year-old produced a remarkable display as his hat-trick rescued a point for the Euro 2016 winners. And he equals the legendary Ferenc Puskas, the most prolific European-born global goalscorer in history and the second most-prolific overall. "There must be debate as things go better when there is competition for places".

Spain struggled to contain Portugal's counterattacks, but it showed it remained a solid team despite Lopetegui's absence. Prison sentences not over two years in Spain are often suspended for first-time offenders. Bouhaddouz was positioned in front of the net and knocked the ball into his own goal to give Iran the stunning victory in the Group B match.

"We saw two teams that were very good in all faculties, the defence, midfield and attack", he said.

Spain ultimately controlled much of the game and can chalk up two of the goals conceded to uncharacteristic individual errors.

As for Portugal, it was always going to be a dog-fight of a group. "Spain are one of the favourites and we have started with a draw after coming from behind".
