Cristiano Ronaldo scores early in Portugal's win, Morocco eliminated

Posted June 20, 2018

Ronaldo started his world cup campaign by scoring a hat-trick against Spain and managed Portugal to claim a 3-3 draw.

Morocco does not have any chance to move to the next round of the 2018 World Cup after losing its first and second game.

Ronaldo's goal against the North Africans means he has now scored 85 worldwide goals, more than any other European player in the history of football. Ahead of him, only Iran's Ali Daei, whose seemingly unbreakable total of 109 looks that little bit more vulnerable now.

Portugal, on the other hand, are looking good in Group B. They got in a point in their opening game against Spain and added three more on Wednesday.

The 33-year-old scored a first half header in four minute for Portugal against the Lions of the Atlas.

If Ronaldo plays at the same level Wednesday at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, a Portugal victory would ensure elimination for Morocco.

Morocco will rue giving Ronaldo too much freedom in the six-yard box.

Federation Internationale de Football Association regulations, as well as the graphic content of the violent attack, mean that we can not show you the footage but Pepe will do well to recover in time for their final group game against Iran on Monday.

Morocco Will Complete 2026 World Cup Infrastructure Projects Despite Defeat
Morocco, on the other hand, promised a "European" World Cup in Africa, playing on the north African nation's proximity to Europe. Not to mention the 2026 World Cup will coincide with the 250-year anniversary of the U.S.' independence.

Mehdi Benatia forced a smart low save from Rui Patricio at a corner for Morocco, before Hakim Ziyach skipped his way into the Portugal area, his goal-bound effort blocked by an outstretched leg.

The Real Madrid superstar has never been one for facial hair, and it seems unusual that he would opt to make this change midway through a World Cup tournament.

Portugal looks well set to advance to the round of 16 while Morocco will certainly be going home.

A canny run from the Portugal's No. 7 bamboozled Manuel da Costa, leaving Ronaldo on his own to send a stooping header into the net.

Warriors Willing To Give Kevin Durant Any Contract He Chooses
Will Barton - one of the most underrated players in the league, who might get squeezed in a tight free agent market. I want him to be happy and want him to know we want him as long as he wants to be here.

The centre-back pairing of Jose Fonte and Pepe (who, once again, did himself no favours in terms of his reputation by throwing himself to the ground when Benatia tapped him on the shoulder late on) needs protection and they did not get it.
