Cesc Fabregas Questions Cristiano Ronaldo's World Cup Goals

It was Ronaldo's fourth goal of the tournament, more than his combined tally at three previous finals, and left him trailing just Iran's Ali Daei (109) on the list of top worldwide goalscorers.

Portugal and Spain lead Group B with four points each, followed by Iran with three and Morocco with zero points so far.

Messi had a penalty saved in Argentina's 1-1 draw with Iceland on Saturday, one day after Cristiano Ronaldo had a hat-trick in Portugal's 3-3 draw with Spain.

"Ronaldo embraces the pressure of playing for Portugal". Both sides actually have very good ones with Spain's only yellow card dished out to Sergio Busquets in the draw with Portugal. Well, now is another aspect of the World Cup that I like, football math.

For while sporting success in a single tournament is a matter of contrasting luck and split seconds - Messi striking a penalty at the Iceland goalkeeper, arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal burying one in the Spanish net - results in Russian Federation will do little in themselves to damage brand "Messi", nor perhaps much to enhance the global standing of Ronaldo's "CR7".

Courtesy of a Luis Suarez goal in the 23rd minute, Uruguay did enough to gain their second three-pointer to join Russian Federation on six points and ensure their progress to the round of 16. "I hope you will tell Messi to play a better match against Nigeria", another person commented, referring to the upcoming third and final Group D game in St. Petersburg.

For Morocco, a second successive defeat condemned them to an early exit in their first World Cup appearance since 1998. "The important thing is the Iran game. He more than anyone would give everything for this to be his World Cup".

Host Russia will join the South Americans with 6 points, while Egypt are eliminated along with Saudi Arabia, with a game still to play. "Queiroz has been working with them for seven years and they won't make things easy for anyone".

"For me you always have to look at Brazil for what they can produce at tournaments", said Edinburgh.
