That Hilariously Bad Cristiano Ronaldo Statue Has Finally Been Replaced

That Hilariously Bad Cristiano Ronaldo Statue Has Finally Been Replaced

Ronaldo's personal success has come at an event in which he has previously struggled to be at his best, and he has eclipsed his goal tally from his previous 13 World Cup appearances before this tournament combined.

Spain head to Kazan to face Iran still counting the cost of a chaotic run-up to the tournament during which Julen Lopetegui was sensationally sacked just two days before they opened their campaign.

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

He was suspended for four months after a group match in 2014 for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini.

"That's Ronaldo, that's why I'm not surprised he wants to win another golden boot and why he wants to win the World Cup".




Ronaldo, 33, unveiled his fresh look ahead of Portugal's World Cup clash against Morocco with the superstar forward aiming to build on his stunning hat-trick against Spain.

"We won't focus only on Ronaldo", said Da Costa. "The most important thing is that the team protects him, supports him to death". Both teams should in all likelihood make it to the Round of 16, but nothing can be predicting keeping the unpredictability of the matches so far.

Iran has never beaten a European side at a World Cup - their only previous victory was a 2-1 win over the United States in France in 1998.

Portugal kick off the feast of football when they take on Morocco. Iran gave up only three goals, two in the last match after it had already qualified for the World Cup.
