Watching football with women can be very sweet and painful at the same time, she's asking me why they are scoring many goals in a very short time and then they don't count all the goals.
How do I explain to her that some of the goals are replays? Please help a brother#PORESP

Ronaldo’s Diary be like:
Got fined 18.8m euros,
Accepted a two-year suspended jail sentence,
Scored a hat-trick at the World Cup.

Fair play to Cristiano Ronaldo. It just goes to show that if at first you don't succeed then try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try again.

The question now of course is whether Spain or Portugal can hope to topple group leaders Iran.

Really looking forward to the day when Diego Costa retires to become a character actor in #Hollywood. 🔮
