Spain And Portugal Just Gave Us One Of The Most Entertaining World Cup Games Ever

The thing is, lads, there's another month of this. Isn't football the best thing in the world, ever?

Let's just appreciate how bloody good that game was. Like, seriously. This tournament might have started a little slow but it erupted in the most sublime fashion.

Cristiano Ronaldo was cool, calm and collected from the penalty spot to put Portugal ahead after just three minutes.

But it didn't take long for Spain to equalise.

Diego Costa banged in after a mazy individual and then Cristiano bagged again. What a half of football.

Then second 45 minutes was just as good, if not better. That man Costa scored again with a finish from close range and then full-back Nacho hit the goal of the tournament thus far.

Everybody in our office stood, hands on head, screaming "WOWEEEE" as Sergio Ramos and co. surrounded the defender. It was a classic World Cup moment. The technique. The audacity. The sheer thrill of it all.
