Portugal coach Fernando Santos opted to pair Goncalo Guedes with Ronaldo from kick-off in the thrilling 3-3 draw with Spain in Sochi, where the captain of the Euro 2016 victor netted a stunning 88th-minute free-kick to deny one of the favourites, which was reeling from the shock sacking of coach Julen Lopetegui on the eve of the tournament. Cristiano Ronaldo rightly gained all the plaudits in the game for his hat-trick including a stunning last-gasp freekick equaliser.

All 23 players took part in Portugal's final training session ahead of their clash at the Luzhniki Stadium.
