The Portugal legend, who is due to play his first World Cup game this evening, was accused by Spanish prosecutors of defrauding tax authorities of €14.8m (£12.9m).

Cesc Fabregas believes Diego Costa is a genuine contender to win the World Cup Golden Boot with Spain.

Ronaldo scored his 82nd, 83rd and 84th career goals for Portugal to match Puskas, who played for Hungary from 1945-1956 and for whom Federation Internationale de Football Association has named its Goal of the Year Award.

Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo lit up the World Cup in his own inimitable style on Friday (June 15), curling in a late free kick to complete a remarkable hat-trick and earn his team a 3-3 draw in an enthralling clash with neighbours Spain.

"Modesty aside, I think that I am the world's best player", Neymar quipped in an exchange with the hosts of Desimpedidos, a Brazilian YouTube channel.

"I'm happy, it's my best performance in a World Cup", Ronaldo said after the Group B match.

Portugal's all-time record scorer Cristiano Ronaldo was the Man of the Match in the six-goal thriller against Spain, matching an unbelievable worldwide record set by an African superstar.

"They can afford him, certainly", Ronaldo explained to the Daily Star.

His three goals on Friday - which included a fourth-minute penalty and a first-half effort that went in thanks to a mistake by Spain goalkeeper David de Gea - mean he has now scored at four World Cups. People say it's not the same as the other players, he plays too different and blah, blah, blah.

"I have said it so many times", Portugal coach Fernando Santos told reporters.

"More important than his physical form is his mental form, he has incredible mental endurance", Santos said. He will pay a fine of 18.8 million euros ($21.8 million) but likely will not head to prison because, under Spanish law, first-time offenders who are sentenced to less than two years may serve their time on probation.

"The World Cup has only just begun". We are not the favourites so we will try to do our best.
