Cristiano Ronaldo overtakes Ferenc Puskas' international goal record

It is likely to be a fourth and final World Cup for the 33-year-old, although he is showing little sign of decline after a fourth Champions League title in five seasons with Real Madrid. Each week we will have an update of the tournament in action.

If both European sides win then it will come down to goal difference between the pair. With his second goal coming in extra time at the 91st minute. To get the three points. 38 goals were scored in the first set of 16 matches, and we've already seen some big shocks along the way.

Two Group C matches will take the stage first, as France will play Peru at 8 a.m. EDT on FS1, and Denmark will face Australia at 11 a.m. EDT on Fox.
