Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal will begin their World Cup campaign on Thursday against Ghana at Stadium 974. The European nation has one of the most exciting squads among the 32 teams that have made it to Qatar. They have immense quality from back to front, with most of their players establishing themselves as regulars in top European clubs. However, the headline surrounding Portugal talisman Ronaldo in recent days has been for the wrong reason following his explosive interview with Piers Morgan about Manchester United. However, with Ronaldo set to leave Old Trafford and the matter seems to be resolved, Portugal fans will hope that incident will not act as a distraction for their star striker or the rest of his teammates.

Portugal have arguably one of the best squads in their footballing history, which is more than capable of going all the way. However, they have never won a World Cup, hence it will be interesting to see if this team can create history. They won their last game against Nigeria 4-0 in a friendly. Having said that Portugal would be disappointed at missing out on the top spot of League A Group 2 in the Nations League after losing to Spain in their final fixture. On the other hand, Ghana are heading into this World Cup on the back of producing some impressive results, including a 2-0 win over Switzerland in their last match. However, they face a difficult task in getting out of Group H which also consists of Uruguay and South Korea.

Possible Lineups

It is not only off the field but even on the field, all the headlines were about Ronaldo recently. The former Real Madrid striker had to sit out the win over Nigeria due to an illness. However, it is believed that the 37-year-old will be fit enough to start for Portugal on Thursday. It will be interesting to see who among Rafael Leao, Joao Felix and Andre Silva plays alongside Ronaldo up front. Besides, they have an interesting battle in goal, with one of Rui Patricio and Diogo Costa will be chosen there. On the other hand, Ghana have more or less everyone available for this contest, hence they could name a strong lineup. 

Portugal possible line-up: Costa, Dalot, Pepe, Dias, Cancelo, Carvalho, Neves, Fernandes, B. Silva, Leao, Ronaldo

Ghana possible line-up: Ati Zigi, Lamptey, Amartey, Djiku, Baba, Partey, Abdul Samed, Kudus, Sulemana, J. Ayew, Williams
