Cristiano Ronaldo makes more history as Portugal beat Morocco

Cristiano Ronaldo has tipped the 22-year-old Silva, who moved to Milan from Porto last year, as his long-term successor in the Portugal team. "I occupy spaces, in the movements we open spaces for each other, I hope everything goes back to this way".

Midfielder Joao Mario was included in Portugal's starting line-up for the World Cup Group B match against Morocco on Tuesday in the only change from the team which started the 3-3 draw against Spain.

Russian Federation is the lowest FIFA ranked side at the event, but two games in they are top of their group with six points and are poised to qualify for the next stage.

"We can not underestimate them and must have respect for any opponent".

"If the game against Morocco was the World Cup final for us, the game against Spain will be the Universe Cup final", said the former Real Madrid coach. It was Morocco's first win at the tournament.

"I hope Cristiano Ronaldo will play a great match, we're used to that nearly", Santos said. "(The Portuguese) have two feet, two legs and they are humans like us". "The captain is a very important aspect. but I have never seen a player win a game for his team on his own".

Morocco manager Herve Renard said of the in-form Ronaldo, who scored a hat-trick against Spain, to L'Equipe: "Those who try to mount a plan against him, he always manages to find something to make the difference".

Former global defender Fernando Hierro is now at the helm but barely a week into the tournament Spain - expected to join Brazil, Germany and France in the latter stages - have endured more drama than they would have wanted or expected.

"What I know is that I have given my best, everyone wants to join the XI, but we all agree on the choices of the mister".

"He's absolutely exceptional. Perhaps that word isn't even strong enough but you have to do everything to stop him".

However, fans were up to offer more context on what Ronaldo is doing.

"If it only happens once in our lives to play Cristiano Ronaldo, you have to be the best you can".
