Watch: Former team-mates Ronaldo and Kroos embrace after Euros classic


Former Real Madrid team-mates Cristiano Ronaldo and Toni Kroos embraced after Germany defeated Portugal 4-2 in an instant European Championship classic.

Ronaldo and Kroos struck up an effective working relationship in Spain, winning ten honours together including four Champions League titles.

And the two legends acknowledged each other following a rip-roaring contest in Munich on Saturday afternoon.

Ronaldo opened the scoring, and ended Antonio Rudiger’s career with a no-look backheel, but Germany came from behind to secure a vital victory.

After the final whistle had blown, the Portugal forward and Germany midfielder embraced on the pitch and Kroos also found the time to chat to another former team-mate Pepe.

Germany’s victory means all four teams in Group F have a chance of progressing to the next round of Euro 2020.
