Pepe is renowned as one of football's hard men so he would have never gone down unless there was something seriously wrong and it remains entirely likely that Fifa will hit Benatia with a lengthy suspension after reviewing the stomach-churning footage. He got the opener for Ronaldo against Spain in the 3rd minute last week.

Portugal coach Fernando Santos opted to pair Goncalo Guedes with Ronaldo from kick-off in the thrilling 3-3 draw with Spain in Sochi, where the captain of the Euro 2016 victor netted a stunning 88th-minute free-kick to deny one of the favourites, which was reeling from the shock sacking of coach Julen Lopetegui on the eve of the tournament.

The Portugal forward celebrated his goal with a trademark run and soaring leap toward the corner flag at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.
