The World Cup is officially eight days old! They grow up so fast.
On Wednesday, Group A was decided, we saw the ultimate attack vs defense exercise and two La Liga heavyweights made history.
Here’s how it went down…
So yesterday, I was really busy pretending to do laundry, can you tell me what I missed?
Despite being 33 years of age, Ronaldo continues to show the world that he can do it at the highest level for club and country. The Real Madrid man is now the highest scoring European player at international level after his winner against Morocco. Watch out, Ali Daei.
85 – Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored more international goals than any other European player in the history of football (85 goals for Portugal). Historic. #POR #MAR #PORMAR #Ronaldo #WorldCup pic.twitter.com/I3wsEJTGlQ

Suárez also made history for his country after becoming the first Uruguayan player to score in three different World Cups. His form has been iffy to say the least, but with him and Edinson Cavani up front, you can’t rule La Celeste out.

OK. Sounds interesting. If you had to pick the best moment though, what would you go for?
Diego Costa scoring again for Spain. He’s the complete opposite of everything they believe in, but it makes him so hard to defend against.
Did anyone say anything interesting yesterday?
“I do not know what he is used to, but he was very impressed by Cristiano Ronaldo, and I hear from Pepe that he asked in the first half if he should have his shirt.
“What are we talking about? At the World Cup? It’s not a circus here.” – It’s fair to say Nordin Amrabat wasn’t impressed with referee Mark Geiger.
This may surprise you but I’m into visual art. Can you show me a picture from yesterday that evokes all the emotion of the World Cup?
Could Morocco be the best side in World Cup history to finish on 0 points? They gave their all against Portugal but it wasn’t enough.
You know what? I am all footballed-out. What else could I be watching today?
Relive your youth and go and watch Incredibles 2. Just be prepared to shield your eyes, because apparently it’s giving everyone seizures.
