Spain Coach Hierro: When You Face Ronaldo, Anything Can Happen

Incredibly, there was more drama to come as Portugal won a free-kick about 20 metres out in the 88th minute.

His final score was especially memorable, a lovely free kick with just a few minutes remaining.

In Spain, where kickoff was 8PM last night for La Roja, Mediaset's Telecinco had 10.4M watching as Diego Costa scored twice and Nacho bagged one goal.

"We don't have any doubts about De Gea and he doesn't have any doubts about himself either", Hierro said. "Everyone in the team and the staff had a good attitude, and I feel like I'm privileged". Uruguay outshot Egypt 14-8 in the Group A match.

He became the first player to score a hat trick against Spain and the oldest to score a hat trick in World Cup history at 33 years and 130 days.

During the celebration, Ronaldo rubbed his chin in an apparent reaction to Adidas' "GOAT" promotion with Lionel Messi.

In the fourth match of 2018 FIFA World Cup Portugal and Spain go head-to-head in an enticing contest. Diego Costa levelled only for Ronaldo to put the 2016 European champions back in front just before half-time. And neither did the Real Madrid man.

"It wasn't an easy situation".

"When you have a star like Ronaldo, a detail can change a game", Hierro admitted. In the first match itself, they have a tough test as Ronaldo and cos will be also looking for a ideal start.

Ronaldo made a nice stepover move to get past Fernandez, his Real Madrid teammate, and was fouled at the edge of the area. Guedes fielded a ball which came in from midfield and dished the ball to Ronaldo, who turned and put a shot right at de Gea's legs. Both the Portuguese and Spanish midfield is full of sheer class.

With one point each, Spain and Portugal share the second and third places in their Group B. Iran is leading with three points. "I'm glad he's Portuguese".
