TONI KROOS and Cristiano Ronaldo enjoyed their first catch-up for years on the pitch after Germany's win over Portugal.
Fans noticed the pair immersed a long chat immediately after the final whistle of the Group F epic.

Speaking on the Einfach mal Luppen podcast Kroos shares with brother Felix, via AS, he recalled: "I played with Ronaldo for four seasons.
"And I am not exaggerating when I say that I had the greatest successes with him and thanks to him.
"We were neighbours in the dressing room throughout that period and I was glad to see him.
"We haven't seen each other for a long time, [Real] haven't played against Juventus.
"We talked briefly about the match and the upcoming matches.

In that time, they won a trio of Champions League crowns plus a LaLiga title.
