Portugal will look up to its captain and all-time record goal-scorer Cristiano Ronaldo to get the team off to a positive start.

Portugal will take on Ghana in its Group H FIFA World Cup opener in Stadium 974 in Doha on Thursday.

Portugal will look up to its captain and all-time record goal-scorer Cristiano Ronaldo to get the team off to a positive start.

Ronaldo, who mutually terminated his contract at Manchester United on Tuesday, hasn’t had the best of the 2022-23 season, with just three goals in 18 appearances for both club and country.

The 37-year-old has two goals against Ghana from two appearances, which came in the 2-1 win over the Black Stars in the 2014 World Cup group stages and in the 3-2 win in the 2022 World Cup group stages.

In 2014, the scores were level 1-1 when Ronaldo scored the match-winning goal in the 80th minute. But the goal wasn’t enough, as Portugal failed to progress into the knockouts.

In the first match of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Ronaldo scored the opening goal from the penalty spot.

Portugal will seek to start strong as its placed in a challenging group alongside Uruguay, South Korea and Ghana.
