Cristiano Ronaldo must have smelt blood in the water when he lined up against Spain.
The Portugal star scored his 100th and 101st goal for his nation when club football last assumed a lower priority and there was the opportunity to expand his count with an all-Iberian conflict on Wednesday.
That is on the grounds that Ronaldo lined up against the very team he incurred a hat-trick upon at the 2018 World Cup, protecting a point at the Russian competition when it appeared to be unthinkable.
Portugal versus Spain
The 35-year-old had opened a sensational 3-3 attract Sochi with a clinical penalty, before profiting by a David de Gea clanger and adjusting things with one of his most prominent actually free-kicks.
It was the umpteenth update that regardless of how well you’re playing against a Ronaldo group, you’re just a couple of snapshots of enchantment away from having the game flipped on its head.
Tragically, however, there were no indications of a Ronaldo masterclass during the early trades in Lisbon, and Spain, in spite of neglecting to score during the main half, was serenely the more prevailing side.
Ronaldo’s tip-top attitude
In any case, Ronaldo being Ronaldo, there was still an ideal opportunity for him to stand out as truly newsworthy with a second that supports precisely why he’s frequently alluded to as a definitive footballing machine.
Close to enough every partner of Ronaldo’s throughout the many years has vouched for his tip-top mindset, taking note of how he shows up to prepare sooner than others and spotlights on every last detail.
Indeed, that couldn’t have been more than evident than when the arbitrator blew for half-time during Portugal versus Spain a couple of moments too soon with Ronaldo’s response being gotten on camera.
Ronaldo whines to the ref
The Juventus genius couldn’t conceal he sicken as he traded words with the official and highlighted what was apparently a big screen or screen that showed the untimely time.

Ronaldo is one of only two players, alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic, to have scored in every single minute of regulation time in football history from the first to the 90th.
As a result, Ronaldo is probably the best-placed player in the world to be complaining about such a bizarre time-keeping decision and it’s impossible to know what difference it could have made.
Ronaldo shines for Portugal
One thing we do know, however, is that it didn’t stop Ronaldo from flying out the blocks in the second-half and he came inches away from scoring one of his finest goals in Portugal colors.
The former Real Madrid player saw his blistering shot fly past Kepa Arrizabalaga, only for the crossbar to deny him the glory, which is the same fate Renato Sanches suffered soon after.
Ronaldo had created a glorious opportunity for his compatriot with a superb outside-of-the-foot pass, but the crossbar once again stayed resolute to keep the game poised at an exciting 0-0.
