Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema shared a heartwarming moment during France's 2-2 draw with Portugal reminding fans of Marco Reus and Robert Lewandowski's bromance.

Defending Euro champions Portugal came up against the World champions France in their final Group F match at the Puskas Arena in Budapest, Hungary, but there was nothing to separate the two teams at full-time.

The former Real Madrid team-mates scored a brace for their respective sides, but eagle-eyed fans spotted the excitement between Benzema and Ronaldo on the pitch prior to kickoff.

Benzema appeared thrilled to see the Juventus superstar, while Ronaldo returned the affection with a cheeky smile at his former strike partner, prompting fans to compare it with Reus and Lewandowski's memorable on-pitch exchange in 2015.

Reus caught Lewandowski's eye during Borussia Dortmund's German Cup clash with Bayern Munich, and started to smile, which prompted his former team-mate Lewandowski to break out into laughter.
