And now the spotlight turns to Cristiano Ronaldo. After Lionel Messi and his Argentina lost to Saudi Arabia in one of the biggest upsets in the history of the World Cup, it is time for Cristiano. It is time for Portugal vs Ghana. There are loads of controversy surrounding the Portuguese star. And it remains to be seen how this will affect his team in the World Cup.
Portugal vs Ghana
Date: 24 November 2022
Time: 15:00 (GMT)
Venue: Stadium 974 (Doha)
Cristiano Ronaldo arrived in Qatar as a Manchester United player. He will enter the pitch for Portugal vs Ghana as a free agent. He terminated his contract with the Red Devils and there is so much talk surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo’s next team.
Rumour has it that many of his Portugal teammates, including Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes, are fed up with Ronaldo’s antics. Portuguese fans hope that they will leave all that behind when the time comes for the Portugal vs Ghana kickoff.
It is true that Portugal has a complete and deep roster, featuring the likes of Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias, Bernardo Silva, Rafael Leao, Joao Felix, Bruno Fernandes, Danilo, and the extremely hot Goncalo Ramos. They also have an experienced manager in Fernando Santos, the man who led Portugal to the Euro 2016 title.
In the last friendly before the World Cup, against Switzerland, Ronaldo-less Portugal was stunning and looked like a title contender. That being said, there is no doubt that Ronaldo will start at centre forward in this Portugal vs Ghana game.
Being in a group with Uruguay and Portugal is unfortunate for Ghana, a more than competent team, featuring some players who are starters for their European clubs.
Arsenal’s Thomas Partey and Athletic Bilbao’s Inaki Williams are the most exciting young stars, but the likes of the Ayew brothers offer some experience to the team.
Portugal (4-3-3): Diogo Costa; Cancelo, Pepe, Dias, Guerreiro; Neves, Carvalho, Fernandes; B. Silva, Ronaldo, Rafael Leao
Ghana (4-2-3-1): Ati Zigi; Lamptey, Amartey, Djiku, Baba; Partey, Abdul Samed; Sulemana, A. Ayew, J. Ayew; Williams
