Wednesday was a busy day of international friendly action as we continue to count down the days until the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
The highlight of the day came when Cristiano Ronaldo broke the Portuguese scoring record 21 minutes into the clash with Cameroon.
Across Europe, some of the continent's top teams collided and some standout stats came out of them as well.
Here is a roundup of all the standout stats from a busy day across the world of football.
Ronaldo's Record Breaker
The inevitable occurred in the 21st minute in Leiria as Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 48th-career international goal for Portugal.
The goal broke the previous record that was held by Pauleta:

Ronaldo went on to score his 49th goal for Portugal in the 83rd minute of his team's 5-1 over Cameroon.
England's 1-0 Oddity
England took down Denmark, 1-0, at Wembley thanks to a late strike from Daniel Sturridge.
Sturridge's goal ensured the Three Lions a result with Denmark that they have achieved in five of their six clashes with the Scandinavian nation at Wembley.
The sixth matchup saw the Danes win by the same scoreline:
6 - All six international meetings between England and Denmark at Wembley have ended 1-0 (five wins for England, one for Denmark). Tipped.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) March 5, 2014
Italy Continues To Limp Toward World Cup
Italy's trip to the Vicente Calderon did not go as planned as it fell, 1-0, to Spain on a second-half goal.
The loss extended the Azzurri's winless streak to five games, a streak that contains one loss and four draws:
5 - Italy are without a win in their last five games: four draws followed by tonight's defeat against Spain. Drop. #SpainItaly— OptaPaolo (@OptaPaolo) March 6, 2014
France Continues To Build A Home Fortress
France continued its buildup to the World Cup with a 2-0 victory over the Netherlands at the Stade de France.
With the win, Les Blues extended their home unbeaten streak to four games for the first time since 2006:
4 - France have won 4 home games in a row for the 1st time since May-November 2006 (6 home wins in a row). Landlord.— OptaJean (@OptaJean) March 5, 2014
The match also marked the fourth time in a row where the Oranje failed to score after the 47-minute mark:
47 - In their last 4 international games, the Netherlands haven't scored a goal after the 47th minute. Flawed.— OptaJohan (@OptaJohan) March 5, 2014
Bad Luck Dempsey
Clint Dempsey was non-existent in the United States' 2-0 loss to Ukraine in Larnaca, Cyprus.
The loss by the Yanks extended Dempsey's poor run of form as an individual and as a team member:
This run can't be easy for Clint Dempsey. In his last 10 games played for Seattle, Fulham and the USMNT, his teams have gone 0-9-1.— Joshua Mayers (@joshuamayers) March 5, 2014
