Morocco need to bounce back from their agonising defeat against Iran but Portugal and Ronaldo in particular pose Herve Renard´s men a monumental challenge at Moscow´s Luzhniki Stadium.

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.

The five-time world player of the year bagged a sublime treble against Spain in the heat of Sochi on Friday in Russian Federation 2018´s stand-out match so far, the 51st of his glittering career.

"I am very happy, it's a nice personal record to have, one more in my career", said Ronaldo. I hope this World Cup will be Cristiano's. Just as it looked like Iran would cling on for an admirable goalless draw, Morocco substitute Aziz Bouhaddouz stuck the ball in his own net in the 95th minute to gift the most unlikely of victories.

Next up for Ronaldo and Portugal will be Morocco, who will surely be facing elimination if they are defeated.

Santos refused to reveal if he would make changes to his team, but he was joined at Tuesday's press conference by Pepe, who added: "They're strong as a whole".

Renard lamented that Morocco were "crucified by our own errors" in the loss to Iran, but the Frenchman is used to defying the odds, having led outsiders Zambia to a surprise triumph at the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations. You should know that only top 2 teams from each group will qualify for the knockout round of 16. Renard said he was still smarting from the disappointment but said that the players alone were not to blame.

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.
