Portugal vs Morocco match preview

Portugal’s second Group B match sees them take on Morocco at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Tuesday.

Iran, who face Spain later on in the evening, will begin the day as Group B leaders following their late 1-0 win over Morocco last week.

Moroccan forward Aziz Bouhaddouz scored a 95th-minute own goal, leaving Herve Renard’s side bottom of the group.

The Cristiano Ronaldo Show

Portugal begin the match level with Spain on one point.

It was all about Cristiano Ronaldo in Portugal’s opening match. The Real Madrid forward scored a sensational hat-trick, carrying his Portugal side to a 3-3 draw against Spain.

Among Ronaldo’s goals was a sensational late free-kick that beat David De Gea.

Now the favourite to win the competition’s Golden Boot award, Ronaldo will be looking to add more to his tally.

By scoring in this tournament, Ronaldo became only the second player ever to score in nine consecutive major international tournaments (Asamoah Gyan was the first).
