Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal are not a one-man team - Fernando Santos

Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal are not a one-man team - Fernando Santos

Should the script be stuck to, wins for Portugal and Spain would see them sit joint-top of Group B before the final game, eliminating Morocco completely. We can expect the same combination and team today with no injury concerns for Santos.

They had to defend that solitary goal for over 90 minutes in a game filled with adrenaline and never lacking in emotions.

That win puts them at the top of their group ahead of Spain's clash with Iran, and Ronaldo sees no reason why they can not make the position their own.

It all started with Ronaldo's celebration after netting a hat trick against Spain to single-handedly carry Portugal to a 3-3 draw with the world powerhouse.

The Portuguese is now only behind Ali Daei of Iran, on 109 goals, in the global all-time scoring charts.




He added, "I'm very happy, but we had the game tied up and a foul let them equalise".

Iran goes into the match at Kazan Arena leading Group B after its victory over Morocco and hopes its stingy defence keeps the team on track to advance to the next round.

"You can't compare Messi with Ronaldo", Leicester City midfielder Silva said Sunday. Another big concern for Morocco is Nordin Amrabat who could miss this clash after suffering a concussion in the opening game against Iran.

Speaking to ITV's 2018 FIFA World Cup podcast, via MARCA, Evra said that Ronaldo asked him to come to his house one day after training, between 2006 and 2009, before the striker left United for Real Madrid. It's really between two players: Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, unless you have a nostalgic longing for the return of Diego Maradona and take the stance that he was better than both. "He has to help us as best as he can".

After Portugal, Morocco will play against La Roja (Spain) on June 25.
