While the Real Madrid superstar can usually be relied upon to find the net, Al Hain-Cole expects his Swansea City counterpart to pose a real threat at the other end of the pitch

After inspiring Portugal to a 7-0 victory over Estonia on his return to international duty fresh from winning the Champions League, Cristiano Ronaldo is again expected to take centre stage against Iceland in Tuesday’s Euro 2016 clash.

Top scorer for the Seleccao with 58 goals in 126 internationals, the Real Madrid superstar is NetBet’s 12/5 (3.40) favourite to open the scoring in Saint-Etienne, and priced at just 4/5 (1.80) to strike anytime.

Following on from a 1-0 defeat against England, the Estonia result only underlined the captain’s importance to Fernando Santos’ outfit, although it would be unfair to label them a one-man team.

New NetBet customers can take an enhanced price of 6/1 (7.0) on Ronaldo finding the net. Simply open a new account using the links provided, depsoit using bonus code CR7 back the Portugese captain at the usual price shown on site and if he scores, the returns will be topped up to the enhanced value.

Having ended the season in prolific form for Lille while on loan from Swansea City, Eder is priced at 21/10 (3.10) to find the back of the net for the third game in four internationals.

On the scoresheet in three of his last seven appearances for his country, Nani is available at 23/10 (3.30) to grab the headlines at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard, while Ricardo Quaresma can be backed at 53/20 (3.65) to add to his recent record of three in three internationals.

Although lacking the star quality available to their opponents, Lars Lagerback and Heimir Hallgrimsson also have plenty of firepower to call upon at the other end of the pitch.

With an impressive international record of 20 goals in 39 caps, Kolbeinn Sigthorsson looks like an appealing 12/1 (13.00) long shot to break the deadlock in his country’s first ever major tournament, or at generous 9/2 (5.50) anytime odds.

Alternatively, Augsburg striker Alfred Finnbogason’s record of hitting the net in five of his last eight matches for club and country suggests odds of 21/4 (6.25) are certainly worth considering on him proving the hero for Strakarnir okkar.

However, having scored six goals in 10 qualification matches and boasting an unerring ability from set pieces, Gylfi Sigurdsson looks like the pick of the anytime bets at 21/4 (6.25), with the Swansea City man having just enjoyed a particularly prolific season in the Premier League.
