The Mountain from Game of Thrones to crush Ronaldo's heart

The Mountain from Game of Thrones to crush Ronaldo's heart

Cristiano Ronaldo may be known around the world for his muscles but that's nothing compared to The Mountain (Hafthor Julius Bjornsson) from Game of Thrones, who has promised the crush the Portugal attacker's heart if he impresses against the six foot nine brute's native Iceland at Euro 2016.

Hero O'Shea the toast of world's elite

In a week of international football which boasted drama, goals and even a brawl, John O’Shea’s stoppage-time leveller against Germany in his 100th appearance for the Republic of Ireland was a fitting finale.

The Sunderland centre-back, having defended resolutely for much of the encounter in Gelsenkirchen, expertly guided the ball beyond Manuel Neuer to salvage a 1-1 draw and heap more misery on the World Cup winners.

O’Shea was not the only player to enjoy a stellar Tuesday, with Cristiano Ronaldo bagging a last-minute winner against Denmark, Lionel Messi striking twice in Hong Kong and Neymar claiming four (yes, four) goals against Japan.
Ronaldo also celebrated reaching a 100 million fans on facebook.

Ronaldo lights up the World Cup...with a new haircut?

While Barcelona team-mates Lionel Messi and Neymar have been lighting up the World Cup for Argentina and Brazil respectively, Cristiano Ronaldo has endured a frustrating tournament with Portugal.

The Real Madrid star has made just one notable contribution, a stoppage-time assist against USA, while Neymar and Messi have both leapt to the top of the goalscoring charts with four strikes each.

However, highlighting his enduring stardom, Ronaldo could overshadow his rivals' achievements merely by his latest trip to the barbers. The 29-year-old has gone for a dramatic new Mohawk hairstyle that could prove a welcome distraction from his nation's struggles.

Ronaldo stops USA in their tracks

USA were on course to reach the last 16 of the World Cup before Cristiano Ronaldo, who was subdued for the majority of the encounter, whipped in a sublime cross for Silvestre Varela to head home in the 95th minute and salvage a draw for Portugal.

Despite the draw, Jurgen Klinsmann's side are still in the driving seat to reach the knockout stage but they must still get at least a point out of their final game against Germany to ensure that goal difference will not be a factor in dumping them out of the competition.

Half-fit Ronaldo overrun by ruthless Germany

Poor Ronaldo. He spent all week battling an ongoing knee problem to make Portugal's opening game in Group G against Germany, only to be shackled over the course of a 90 minute 4-0 defeat.

Tendonitis may have restricted his training time in the lead up to the game but the 29-year-old looked fit enough and did draw Manuel Neuer into a couple of good saves.

But when all was said and done (and Pepe had received his marching orders), Ronaldo could do nothing to drag his side away from a heavy defeat.
