Mohamed Salah carried his incredible club form onto the worldwide stage, but Cristiano Ronaldo had the last word, scoring two stoppage-time goals to earn the European champions a victory.

And my word, it did not disappoint one bit!

The Portugal captain scored the equaliser in the 92nd minute, ghosting into the area before nodding home.

And my word, twitter erupted!

"We were not so good collectively in the second half but our individual creativity helped us win the game". However, in the second minute of additional time, Ronaldo scored a sensational header from a diagonal cross that Egypt's Ahmed El-Shenawy simply could not save.

There was initial confusion as they referee consulted the video assistant referee (VAR) system for a possible offside before allowing the goal.

"And with Ronaldo, it's about a goal and another goal".


Earlier, Salah, who has shone at Liverpool this season with 28 Premier League goals, broke the deadlock in Zurich after 56 minutes.

Real Madrid forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, wants to be the top earner in world football and wants to earn €1million more than Barcelona's Lionel Messi in his next deal.

Throughout the match, the Pharaohs held off several attacks by Portugal.

Now in third, Ronaldo trails only Ferenc Puskas (84, Hungary and Spain) and the seemingly insurmountable total of Ali Daei (109, Iran).

Egypt coach Hector Cuper was disappointed with the result but happy with the performance.

European Championship runner-up France scored twice inside 26 minutes through striker Olivier Giroud and wide midfielder Thomas Lemar.
