Twitter erupts as Cristiano Ronaldo inspire Portugal to their second victory

Andre Silva will relish playing with "the best in the world" Cristiano Ronaldo if he is picked to start alongside the Real Madrid star for Portugal against Morocco at the World Cup.

A Cristiano Ronaldo header was the difference between the two sides at halftime, Ronaldo met a corner with a courageous diving header to put Portugal ahead early in the half.

Renard was involved in discussions with officials over two rejected first-half penalty claims but his side created enough chances to score from open play had they been more accurate in front of goal.

Another Portugal game and Cristiano Ronaldo bailed them out once again.

Hello! Welcome to the Live Updates for Portugal Vs Morocco.

"Portugal have the capacity to do better than we played against Spain and I hope we can correct our mistakes".

Their first match, against Spain, ended in a wild 3-3 draw with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a hat-trick, but while Santos was pleased with some aspects of that game, he expects his team to improve in certain areas.

Good afternoon and a warm welcome to our coverage of the Group B game between Morocco and Portugal.




The victory has moved Portugal onto four points in Group B, while Morocco have been eliminated from the competition with their second defeat in Russian Federation.

Isco has praised interim Spain coach Fernando Hierro for having the wisdom not to make significant changes since taking the reins from the sacked Julen Lopetegui, as it aims to get its first World Cup win against Iran on Wednesday.

More records at the World Cup also shows that the 33-year-old's free header from a set-piece in the 4th minute against Morocco means he has now scored the two fastest goals in Russian Federation.

Morocco, who had several opportunities to score at the Luzhniki Stadium but failed to convert their chances, have no points, having also lost 1-0 to Iran, and can not progress to the second round.

Ronaldo has now scored 85 global goals; one more than Puskas.

Cristiano Ronaldo has become the second leading global goalscorer of all time after finding the back of the net against Morocco.

Morocco and Portugal played each other at the 1986 World Cup in Mexico, and the Moroccans won 3-1 to enter the round of 16 while Portugal finished last.

It promises to be an interesting match as Portugal take on Morocco at the Luzhniki stadium.
