Preview:

After making headlines for his controversial interview with Piers Morgan and his feud with Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo's focus is now on World Cup. The football legend is playing his 5th World Cup for Portugal and he would be hoping to make it a successful one. 

Despite having some of the biggest names in football in their side, Portugal have failed to go big in the tournament. They have reached the semi-finals of the World Cup only on two occasions and have failed to go beyond the last 16 in four of their last five tournaments. But new tournament brings new opportunity for the side and they will be hoping to make it count this time. 

Meanwhile, Ghana will come into this game as underdogs. They are currently ranked  61 in FIFA rankings but their recent form would be a warning sign for Ronaldo and Co. The side have some in-form  players like Thomas Partey and Mohammed Kudus.
