Cristiano Ronaldo remains coy about his Real Madrid CF future

Mourinho guided Real Madrid to the 2011/12 LaLiga title, returning to manage Chelsea after leaving the Bernabeu in June 2013 before taking over as Manchester United boss last summer.

A defensive lapse by Russian Federation allowed Raphael Guerreiro's cross from the left to find Ronaldo at the far post, and he made no mistake with his point-blank header.

The soccer star is due to appear in court on July 31.

He was adjudged the Man-of-the-Match and thus had to attend the post-match press conference.

The speculation made me think, which can often prove a tough task for someone as simple minded as myself - where would Ronaldo fit into Antonio Conte's side?

The Argentinian, who now plays for Paris Saint-German, is unlikely to spend any time behind bars though - most sentences under two years in Spain are suspended for first-time offenders. "We played against a team playing at home with a home crowd, a team that pressured us but we were better". He could also prove to be a much cheaper alternative to Kylian Mbappe as he is valued at just £50 million compared to the Frenchman's valuation of over £100 million.

In March, a day after being summoned to answer a judge's questions regarding the fraud investigation, Di Maria paid 1.45 million euros ($1.6 million) to Spain's Tax Office.

Marcelo has spent practically his entire senior career at Real Madrid, having moved to the Spanish capital in 2007 as an 18-year-old.

"He is here to talk about the game, full stop, not about his life and his family. You will have other opportunities", Santos added.

Portugal's last group game is against underdogs New Zealand on Saturday.
