    Spain have just sacked their manager. 2 days before their crucial game against Portugal.

    Ronaldo is still just the most incredible player. The class of the man to step up and deliver that free kick in the final few minutes.

    We were very lucky to have him grace our stadium for so long.

    Ronaldo was just phenomenal. When he got that free kick I said, he'll never get that in, it's too close :) guy is a one off.

    Ronaldo is the greatest of all time. People can argue that with me until the cows come home, I won't change my mind in it.

    But who would have thought after round one that Iran would be top of the group!

    I still think this tournament is going to be won by a team who defend well enough and have a guy to win them games. I'm not saying it'll be Portugal but they are one side who fit that.

    The team with the best defence normally wins the tournament and that's also normally the case in the league as well because you will get days where your attack doesn't click and if the guys at the back keep it to 0 the worst that can happen in knockout football is extra time and pens.

    I don't think that Portugal defence is that good Spain put 3 past them in the opening game but Portugal are the masters of counter attack football it's what there culture has been based on for your keep it tight at the back and break with speed down the wings and it's how they won Euro 2016. To me the Spain game acts as a warning for them because a good side put 3 past them quite easily even if one of them was an absolute worldie.
