Ronaldo appears to mock Messi with imaginary goat beard goal celebration

Morocco, like Egypt, will now have to arrange an early flight out of Russian Federation, while Ronaldo, with his goal, the 85th for Portugal, becomes the highest global goals scorer ever in European football by overtaking Hungarian Ferenc Puskas.

A Messi fan called Ronaldo "obsessed", writing; 'Messi does an ad with a goat (because he is THE GOAT), and now he makes a "goat" celebration and grows a goatee. Nacho, as he did in the game on Friday night, held his hands up to protest his innocence.

Morocco has zero points through two matches, after a brutal own goal against Iran and a thoroughly game but ultimately fruitless effort against reigning European champion Portugal.

Ronaldo is in World Cup action against Morocco on Wednesday - and will be hoping his country secures victory so it can put itself in the best position to progress to the latter stages.

It was the start to what should be a fantastic Russia World Cup.

The Portuguese scored in the fourth minute of the match at the Luzhniki Stadium to take his team to the top of the table as of now. The main concern would be their defending as it left a little to be desired at times, and that's one of the reasons why I think we will see a few goals this afternoon. "We're not dead", said midfielder Faycal Fajr, one of 17 foreign-born players in Morocco's squad.

"We are a team who wants to do well, not a sum of individuals who want to beat records". This will be the first time Morocco will face Portugal since the 1986 game. "Not only in terms of the last match but his career as a whole".

Spain were not the only pre-tournament favourite to suffer disappointment in their opening game. "You have to believe in yourself, even if the other team is better than you".

Spanish playmaker Isco say Wednesday's (Jun 20) match against Iran will determine their World Cup destiny as they seek to register their first win in Russian Federation following a gripping 3-3 draw against Portugal.
