Portugal vs Morocco

Despite lifting the trophy at Euro 2016, Ronaldo's Portugal are not widely viewed as among the favourites in Russian Federation.

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored his fourth goal at the World Cup and Portugal leads Morocco 1-0 in the fourth minute at Luzhniki Stadium.

Ronaldo, who scored a hat-trick in Portugal's opening 3-3 draw with Spain, is now the all-time leading scorer for any European national team.

Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo on Wednesday afternoon made history after scoring against Morocco in their second Group D match in the 2018 World Cup.

Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sunshine, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Skies will remain mostly sunny throughout the day, much like yesterday, and we will also keep around the heat.

"He's very happy to be here with us and every match it's a privilege for us Portuguese to have a player such as him".

"For me the most important thing is to emphasise what the team did against one of the favourites to win this World Cup".

"We can not underestimate them and must have respect for any opponent".

The Atlas Lions manager Renard admits it could be hard for his side to contain Ronaldo as the North African nation look to bounce back from their opening game defeat.

- Morocco had 68 per cent possession in their 1-0 defeat to Iran, the most by a losing team in a World Cup match since June 2010, when Spain had 73 per cent possession against Switzerland but lost 1-0. We're used to that nearly, not only in the last match but his career as a whole.

"I could throw out some examples, like the Argentina draw (1-1 with Iceland)". We've tried to continue improving what we did well and rectify what we didn't do so well, but it's two or three days, we don't have magic dust. "We lost a battle, but not the war". "We're not dead", he added".

Morocco boss Renard is expected to name an unchanged side to the one that faced Iran on Friday.

Morocco will need Renard to conjure up more magic to prevent an early exit, although Fajr says the mood in the camp remains positive. The plan: do Iran over and then see if you can get a result against one of the big boys.

That's it, we have to look at what we need to correct from the Iceland match, but we can't dwell on it. We all remember the 2002 shock result as Senegal beat Les Bleus in the opening game of the tournament.
