France and Portugal are both safe through to the last 16 of Euro 2020, as they played an exciting 2-2 draw that saw Cristiano Ronaldo corresponds to Ali Daie’s record of 109 international goals.
Ronaldo scored twice from the penalty spot and squeezed a double from his former Real Madrid colleague Karim Benzema, who scored his first international goals since 2015.
Cristiano Ronaldo gets better games, but he has few more memorable ones. Without being at his best, he converted a couple of penalties, which was crucial for his side to advance to the final 16. In addition, he has equaled Daie’s record of 109 international goals and is well set to win the Golden Boot.
Continues to see a different player than the one who has Manchester United. Set up Benzema’s goal with a brilliant pass and almost even got on the scoreboard with a curly shot that Rui Patricio had little right to claw out of his top left corner.
Karim Benzema came into this game a man under pressure. He had failed to score in his four international matches since returning to France’s fold. Kept his nerve to equalize from the penalty spot as France struggled, then scored with a fine finish early in the second half after breaking the offside trap.
