New Records & Milestones Cristiano Ronaldo Can Set in Russian Federation

One man has stood out so far in Russian Federation and that is none other than Cristiano Ronaldo.

Spain earned its first win at the 2018 World Cup on Wednesday, narrowly beating Iran 1-0 on a fortunate goal from Diego Costa.

His effort against Morocco moves him onto 85 goals across 152 outings, one more than the legendary Ferenc Puskas (though his 84 goals came in 85 matches), which only leaves Ali Daei of Iran (109 goals) ahead of him in the all-time standings.

It took just four minutes in Portugal's second match for Ronaldo to score his fourth goal of Russian Federation 2018. "They created many chances but we managed to get the victory and that is what matters most", Ronaldo added.

Cedric admits the European champions will rely on Ronaldo to take them as far as possible in Russian Federation because he is more ruthless than any other striker out there right now.

Iceland drew Argentina (1-1): With a population of just more than 300,000, Iceland's first World Cup match ends in a draw against the fifth-ranked team in the world, Argentina.

Morocco had their chances, but ultimately couldn't finish the job.

Portugal reached the semi-finals in 2006, losing to a Zinedine Zidane penalty against France, but exited in the last 16 four years later before crashing out at the group stage in Brazil.

Uruguay and Russian Federation have both clinched a spot in the round of 16 of the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation on Wednesday thanks to the 1-0 win over Saudi Arabia by La Celeste in their second group stage match.
