However, their blanks in their respective games today means the duo have both still never scored a goal in a World Cup knockout game. Then, after Marcos Rojo's 86th-minute victor secured Argentina's place in the last 16, he made a middle-finger gesture with both hands. "You need to really concentrate to make sure he is not successful against you, but that is very hard".

Ronaldo's glittering club career has seen him win five Champions League winner's medals, five top flight titles in Spain and England and several league trophies.
