Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo found the back of the net in Germany’s 4-2 win over Portugal which means he is just two goals away from equaling Ali Daei’s all-time record of international goals, Sky Sports reports.

The Portuguese captain cleared the ball from his own box and sprinted ahead of everyone on the pitch to score the opening goal in less than 15 minutes.

However Germany responded with four goals following own goals by Ruben Dias and Raphael Guerreiro later in the first half and then Kai Havertz and Robin Gosens scored each in the second half.
