It was an intense day of football alright
Well, except maybe for the last minutes of the Portugal-France game. The previous matchday though, was full of important matches, some of which determined teams’ progression near the full time whistle, like for example, the Sweden - Poland match!

Former Real Madrid talisman Cristiano Ronaldo has officially tied Ali Daei’s record
That’s right. Our beloved legend Cristiano, stroke twice from the penalty spot (of which one was won by the man himself) to take his tally for NT to 109 goals. This is the highest amount of goals scored by a player for their National Team, but he is level with Ali Daei, although CR7 will get a chance to add to that.
