Cristiano Ronaldo just played one of the best games of his life. He was outstanding throughout today’s Portugal-Spain match, holding up play like a champ, giving life to numerous counterattacks with ingenious flicks and passes, and, oh yeah, scoring three goddamn goals in what ended as a 3-3 tie. His best goal by far was this beauty of a free kick at the end of normal time, which rescued his team a point when it looked like they were out of it:
Six goals, a couple monumental errors, countless swings of momentum, so many brilliant passes and moves and goals. We probably just saw the best game of the tournament. No surprise that it was Cristiano Ronaldo who dominated it.
