Portugal 2-2 France: Cristiano Ronaldo equals Ali Daei’s record after netting twice from the spot as Karim Benzema bags a brace of his own with Les Bleus finishing as winners of Group F

Portugal and France that ends 2-2, with three of the goals coming from the penalty spot.

It means that both teams qualify for the knockout stages, with France finishing top of Group F and Portugal third.

It was 1-1 at the break, after Ronaldo and Benzema converted their spot-kicks and it took just two minutes for France to go ahead in the second period, with Benzema grabbing another.

Ronaldo composed himself, opened his eyes, darted forward and fired the ball past Lloris before sprinting away to perform a celebratory twirl as more plastic bottles rained down in his direction.

Another incredible record was equalled with this, his second goal of the game, his fifth of the tournament and his 109th in international football, climbing level at the top with Iran’s Ali Daei.

Nor did Karim Benzema, who scored one for France and added a second from open play, his first goals since ending his five-year exile from international football.

However, Kounde handled the ball in the box at the other end and Ronaldo fired in the penalty on the hour mark to make it 2-2.

France finish top of the group with five points, so they will face Switzerland in the knockout stages and Portugal third with four points and they’ll play Belgium in the next round.
