Fans all say the same thing as Cristiano Ronaldo has hand in South Korea World Cup equaliser against Portugal | The Sun
CRISTIANO RONALDO played a key role in South Korea's equaliser against Portugal at the World Cup.
The 37-year-old free agent has just one goal to his name in Qatar but it hasn't stopped Portugal booking their place in the knockouts.
Wins over Ghana and Uruguay booked the Euro 2016 winners' spot in the last 16 with a game to spare.
But they face a South Korea side still in with a chance of qualifying for the knockouts.
Ricardo Horta handed Portugal the lead but South Korea drew level just before the half-hour mark.
A corner was swung in from the left-hand side and the ball hit off Ronaldo's back and fell to Kim Young-gwon.

A third added: "Class assist by CR7."
Ronaldo won't be as keen to claim his involvement in South Korea's goal as he was for Portugal's first against Uruguay.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner claimed to touch the ball from Bruno Fernandes' cross that ended up in the back of the net.
But upon closer inspection, Ronaldo didn't touch the ball and the goal was awarded to ex-Manchester United team-mate Fernandes.
Ronaldo will also be hoping to have his shooting boots on to attract new suitors.
He had his United contract ripped up on the eve of Portugal's World Cup group opener after his bombshell interview with Piers Morgan.
Ronaldo took aim at United as well as past and present figures, including manager Erik ten Hag.
