Can CR7 lead Portugal to last 16?

26 June 2018

Instead, he said the system allows referees to "wash their hands" of controversial calls, and was upset that coaches get no timely information.

Entering the final matchday, both teams are +1, so whichever team's margin of victory is higher would win Group B. If the goal differentials are identical, then it comes down to goals scored in group play-entering the final matchday, both teams are level. The record still lies with Ramos' former team-mate Iker Casillas, who has played 17 World Cup matches for Spain.

Ronaldo, who looks a favourite to win a sixth world player of the year award, will be desperate to top the goalscoring charts in Russian Federation. A draw would be enough if Portugal beat Iran in the other Group B match.

Mohamed Salah is likely to start Egypt's final match against Saudi Arabia on Monday in a fixture between two eliminated sides in Volgograd.

Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal and 2010 winners Spain can lock down spots in the World Cup last 16 today, as hosts Russian Federation ride a wave of national euphoria into their clash with Uruguay.

The Atlas Lions will be desperate to salvage something from what has been a miserable World Cup for Morocco when they take on Spain in Kaliningrad on Monday in their final Group B match.

Substitute Iago Aspas scored in stoppage-time to earn Spain a point against the North Africans which gave them top spot in Group B and a knockout game next against hosts Russian Federation.

However, that glory was short lived after Iago Aspas spared Spain's blushes in stoppage time.

Leaders France area already through but will want to beat Denmark on Tuesday to take top spot in style, although a draw would also keep them clear.

The suspect went on to try stealing another vehicle in the Walmart parking lot before being approached by two armed bystanders. Another witness told KIRO her husband watched the shooter "take his last breath" after being shot by the armed citizen.

France have qualified. Denmark, who play the French, need a point to join them.

Peru have been eliminated but will finish third with a win.

What's the likelihood? Argentina are 48 per cent, Nigeria 45 per cent and Iceland 7 per cent to make the next stage. Argentina need to win, and hope Iceland don't beat Croatia.

Spain needs one point against Morocco to go through to the last 16. If it loses to Sweden, Mexico still advances if Germany loses to South Korea, or wins but with a smaller goal differential.

Nigeria will advance with a win over Argentina.

Group D remains interesting.

Group E Only one thing is certain in Group E and that is Costa Rica, without a point, will be going home.

Brazil would be safely through with a win or a draw against Serbia and will top the group unless Switzerland better their result, or match it with a better goal margin - the Selecao's goal difference is now one better.
