International Matches: Live Thread

Discuss Cristiano's key match right here. Benzema and Varane fighting for a spot in the 2014 World Cup as well.

Casillas, Arbeloa, Ramos and Alonso all start for Spain, even though Alonso had a knock that took him out of the match against Equatorial Guinea. Another questionable decision by Del Bosque, starting all Real Madrid players available just days before playing at Almería.

On the other hand, Cristiano Ronaldo, Pepe and Coentrao will fight for a spot in the 2014 World Cup against Ibrahimovic (20:45 CET). Portugal hold a 1-0 advantage, so a draw would be enough for them to be in Brazil next summer.

Benzema and Varane have a much difficult task. They lost 2-0 against Ukraine (only Benzema took part in that match coming off the bench), so they will have to overcome that deficit in Paris.
