Cristiano Ronaldo’s late free-kick has earned Portugal a point in their opening 2018 World Cup fixture, as the European champions played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Spain.
Ronaldo had already netted two first-half goals to put his side ahead, only for Diego Costa to score either side and Nacho – at fault for the Selecao’s opener – to complete the stunning turnaround.
On his 36th outing at a major international tournament, however, Ronaldo sent a free kick up and over the wall to beat David de Gea for a third time, meaning the spoiled were shared at the Fisht Olympic Stadium.
Prior to that late twist, Spain through Diego Costa had hit back a brace to put themselves on course for a positive end to a difficult week.
