Ronaldo has been at the centre of a transfer storm all week but he showed another side to his character as he planted a kiss on the forehead of ten-year old mascot Polina before the game.

Cristiano Ronaldo stole the headlines once again as he scored the crucial winner to help Portugal move above Russia in Group A and made it a day to remember for a disabled mascot.

Ronaldo has been at the centre of a transfer storm all week after reportedly growing frustrated with a lack of recognition in the Spanish capital as well as the impending tax dispute with the authorities.

The Real Madrid superstar was booed by Russia fans at the start of the game but he silenced his critics in the best possible fashion by scoring the only goal of the game on eight minutes.

Ronaldo was in the right place at the right moment as he met a cross from Bruno Alves and made no mistake directing a close-range header past Russia keeper Igor Akinfeev.
