All yesterday’s action

Moment of the day

All eyes were on Cristiano Ronaldo in his first since leaving Manchester United in controversial circumstances. The Portugal captain already has a handful of records to his name and he added another as he slammed in a penalty to become the first man to score in five World Cups.

Today’s fixtures and how to watch

Wales v Iran (10am, BBC)

Qatar v Senegal (1pm, BBC)

Netherlands v Ecuador (4pm, STV and STV Player)

England v USA (7pm, STV and STV Player)

One to watch

Wales already have a point on the board after their hard-fought draw with USA in the opening game but hopes of progress are likely to rely on taking something from the Iran match.

Carlos Queiroz’s team took a thumping from England but the two goals they scored in their 6-2 defeat should be a warning that they aren’t without some threat.

England may be heavy favourites to win Group B but this morning’s clash in Ahmad Bin Ali is going to have a huge say in who progresses to the knockout rounds.

Social media reactions:

Safe to say Brazil weren’t feeling the nerves ahead of their opening game against Serbia.

Wales loves a rousing anthem and they are already heating things up ahead of their early start against Iran.

Louis van Gaal’s achievements have earned him plenty of fans in his long career but this is probably the first time a journalist in a press conference has told him he loves him.
