Seleção aim to put one foot in the knockouts
After the captivating encounter versus their Iberian counterparts, Portugal now face a Morocco side desperate to register points on the board after their unfortunate loss to Iran
Prior to the results for each of these nations in Round One, this tie had been highly anticipated even before a ball had been kicked in Russia. Morocco, many people’s pick as a dark horse to cause a surprise, boast a host of technically gifted players who – under Hervé Renard – have blossomed into quite a formidable outfit.
Cristiano Ronaldo, meanwhile, will be hoping his teammates can step up to the plate in a similar fashion to that of his own display on Friday night to ensure the European Champions have one foot in the last sixteen.
