Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal will start their World Cup campaign today against their group rivals Ghana at Stadium 974 in Doha. Now, this is probably the last World Cup for the Portuguese legend Ronaldo and he knows that winning the first game would be very crucial for the team as they are in a difficult group with the South American giants Uruguay and Hieung Mein Son’s South Korea. Hence, Fernando Santos’s men need to win against the African side to gain the winning momentum for the tournament.
However, defeating the African side won’t be that easy cause Portugal haven’t won their first match in the 3 FIFA World Cup’s which is a big positive for Ghana and they’ll surely take advantage of it and put pressure on the European side. Ronaldo had recently given an interview criticising Manchester United and recently it was announced that he has left the club and is now a free agent, hence this chaos off the pitch might just affect Cristiano and Portugal’s squad mentally. Ghana could take inspiration from Serbia who defeated Santos’s men at the last minute in the World Cup qualification encounter. All in all, it would be an interesting game.
