Ronaldo Seeks Encore Against Morocco

Tehran's largest football stadium is to admit thousands of women together with men for the first time since the the Islamic revolution of 1979 as World Cup fever grips Iran for its Wednesday evening group game against Spain. But as this World Cup has shown thus far, the unexpected has come to be expected.

Hakim Ziyech also tested the Portugal goalkeeper from distance in the 22nd minute, and Morocco were the team on the front foot as they attempted to level the scores.

Ronaldo fired high and wide of the Morocco crossbar early in the second half, before Belhanda tested the reactions of Patricio down the other end as the match gathered pace once again.

Morocco, who will become the first team who are unable to progress to the next stage if they lose, found space to attack but had trouble getting into the Portuguese box.

They must be more clinical against Portugal if they are to take anything from the game as it seems unlikely to be a 0-0 draw.

"They're very well organised, they know the game technically and tactically".

Portugal XI: Rui Patrício, Cedric Soares, Pepe, Jose Fonte, Raphael Guerreiro, Bernardo Silva, Joao Moutinho, William Carvalho, Joao Mario, Goncalo Guedes, Cristiano Ronaldo.

But his plans were torn apart within minutes at the Luzhniki Stadium as Ronaldo wriggled free of the imposing Da Costa to bury an unstoppable header past a helpless Monir El Kajoui.

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

Fernando Santos has no injury concerns heading into the game.

Central defender Medhi Benatia looked impressive against Iran, and the experience of the Juventus man is going to be crucial if Morocco is to get their World Cup back on track.
