All Spain’s fans could do, after it was over, was applaud. There was no sense wallowing in disappointment, worrying about what it all might mean. Spain had victory snatched away at the last moment, denied a cathartic moment by its nearest neighbor, and yet there was no bitterness, no sorrow: only admiration to the superman effort.

It was all Christiano and Diego Costa show till 50 minutes to put scores on 2 – 2
Second half started with a bang. Spain recovered with another goal. Same man again, Diego Costa. Then before Nacho Fernández scored the sort of goal that is supposed to be beyond the skill of a stand-in right back. The goal gave Spain the lead for the first time in the match and put Fernando Hierro, the Spanish coach, on course for an immense victory only one game, and two days, into his job.

Portugal vs. Spain 2018 World Cup: Cristiano Ronaldo nets hat trick in Portugal 3 – 3 Spain thriller
There was needed a superman performance to put Portugal back into play. Yes, the same man again – Christiano Ronaldo, yet again, intervened. Cristiano Ronaldo’s free kick in the 88th minute swerved around a wall of Spanish defenders and dipped under the crossbar to complete his hat trick and give Portugal a well-earned point in a game that seemed destined to be a loss.
Fact : Christiano Ronaldo had taken 44 free kicks in previous World Cups. He had scored on none of them. But the 45th time’s is a charm to watch
Portugal, which is now best thought of as a nation established long back so that it might one day produce Cristiano Ronaldo, would have its draw. More important, the 2018 World Cup had its spark. The afterglow of a game like this can last for a couple of weeks, at least; on this stage, it can resonate around the world.
Spain would have been forgiven for feeling like a victim. It had been the better team in this game, had more of the ball, created more opportunities, played the slicker, smoother soccer. But when Spain’s players had left the field, and Portugal’s stood in the center circle, the Spanish fans remained standing, and they kept clapping, as every single Portuguese player sought out Ronaldo, to clasp his hand, to ruffle his hair, as though just to touch him was to brush against something holy.
See all goals details of Portugal Vs Spain World cup football match:
- 3’: Goal! Ronaldo Makes Spain Pay. Well, we said there would be drama, and that’s it from the start. A foul, a whistle and a penalty for Ronaldo! He converts, and just like that Spain’s World Cup somehow manages to get even worse.
- 24’: GOAL! Diego Costa Levels for Spain. Diego Costa gets behind the defense and dances around two defenders until he can get a look at the goal. Spotting it, he buries a shot past Rui Patricio.
- 44’: GOAL! Ronaldo Does it Again. A howler from De Gea and Portugal leads 2-1. Ronaldo gets the ball near the top of the area, and wangles a hard low shot at De Gea. Eminently savable, he instead lets it skip off him and in. That’s a terrible mistake from an outstanding goalkeeper, and it’s cost his team badly here in the closing second of the half.
- 55’: GOAL! Diego Costa Makes Portugal Pay. He’s got two now, just like Ronaldo, and we’ve got a game again. Spain: 2, Portugal: 2.
- 58’ GOAL! Nacho Gives Spain the Lead. Nacho steps into a failed clearance, puts his laces into the ball and pings both posts with a shot through traffic. A rocket and, for the moment, a potential winner.
- 88’: GOAL! Ronaldo Equalizes. Christiano !!!!!!!!!!!!!! woooooowwwwwwww! Ronaldo completes his hat trick with a stunning free kick, curled around the wall’s right edge. De Gea never had a chance. It’s 3-3.
