12 things we loved on day seven: Isco, Keane, Ronaldo, Wright & more
One week on from the opening match of the tournament, all three matches ended 1-0 as Portugal beat Morocco, Uruguay bested Saudi Arabia and Spain were victors against Iran.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch in Russia.
There are seconds left, your team are 1-0 down in a World Cup game and you win a throw-in. Why wouldn’t you do this?
Literally the whole country of Iran: 20 seconds left, c’mon hurry up and throw in the ball

A wonderful footballer and good with animals. Form an orderly queue. We love it when animals invade the pitch.

Just look at Keano’s reaction. “Must not let my guard down, must not let my guard down.”

A good day’s work, you have to say.
A look back at Cristiano Ronaldo's day:
– 85th international goal, most by any player in European history
– 2nd player to score 4 goals at a #WorldCup after 33rd birthday
– 1st player w/ 4 goals through team’s 1st 2 games at World Cup since Miroslav Klose for Germany in 2002 pic.twitter.com/F1Ad9pAvW1
