As Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job at the helm of Manchester United continues to be under pressure, one name has emerged as a clear favourite among fans to be the club’s next manager: Zinedine Zidane.

Ronaldo and his side pushed for a late winner, but against all the odds it was Aleksandar Mitrovic that stepped up as Serbia snatched it right at the death to stun Portugal.

The 36-year-old was furious, as Portugal now face a play-off to secure their place, and face the potentially of missing out altogether.
