Man United on alert ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo’s meeting with Real Madrid

GETTYCristiano Ronaldo rumours have been addressed by former Man Utd team-mate Rio Ferdinand

Cristiano Ronaldo broke the record for most global goals scored by a European player on Wednesday, as he found the net in the fourth minute of Portugal's World Cup match against Morocco. Now, if Iran loses, then Spain and Portugal make it out without an issue.

Cape Town - Spain put their World Cup ambitions back on track with a hard fought 1-0 victory over Iran in a match that they certainly didn't have everything their own way.

Amidst the wild celebrations of fans, after Portugal managed to earn a draw against Spain, a young boy stood with tears in his eyes.

Iran's win over Morocco in the first match made this group a bit messier than expected.

In fact, if it had not been for a stunning one-handed save from Wolves' new goalkeeper Rui Patricio, they could well still be fighting for a place in the knockout stages.

It is likely to be a fourth and final World Cup for the 33-year-old, although he is showing little sign of decline after a fourth Champions League title in five seasons with Real Madrid.

His player-option salary ($35,607,968) is slightly higher than his projected max salary as a free agent (about $35.35 million). You can make the case that going after rings, namely with the hope that he'd beat the Warriors to get them, is a bad idea.

Ronaldo's goal on Wednesday came in the 4th minute, when the Portuguese captain found himself unmarked in the Morocco penalty box on a corner kick and powered a thunderous header past the keeper.

Thankfully, there's plenty more matches left to be played.

Diego Costa scored a lucky goal in the 54th minute, getting a favourable bounce off a defender's leg. Whilst Iran had a goal ruled out thanks to VAR.

It was far from a convincing Portuguese display and Santos admitted nerves played a factor, insisting they can not overlook Iran in their final group game on June 25.

Socceroos coach Bert van Marwijk isn't ruling out changes to face a World Cup opponent he rates as a better team unit than France.

"The Danish, they are a strong team", van Marwijk told reporters. "I think we are ranked 41st now." said the Frenchman, who took over in February 2016.
