Cristiano Ronaldo did well to put the recent controversy surrounding his departure from Manchester United behind him in an impressive fashion.
Portugal will look to continue their winning momentum when they take on Uruguay in their second Group H match of the FIFA World Cup 2022. Led by their talisman, Cristiano Ronaldo, the Europeans registered a hard-fought 3-2 win over Ghana in their opener. However, Uruguay had to settle for a goalless draw against South Korea in the other match in the group. A win for Portugal on Monday night will seal their passage to the knockout round and in fact, they could even secure the top spot in the group if the other result goes in their favour.

Cristiano Ronaldo did well to put the recent controversy surrounding his departure from Manchester United behind him in an impressive fashion. His opening goal from the penalty spot made Ronaldo the first male player to score in five World Cups. He will hope to continue on that form when they take on Uruguay, however, it will not be an easy fixture. It was Uruguay that knocked out Portugal in the round-of-16 stage in the 2018 World Cup, thanks to an Edinson Cavani double. Portugal now have an opportunity to enact revenge, however, they have to be at the top of their game to get the three points.

There are hardly any injury concerns both sides have to worry about ahead of this encounter. The few changes they make will be more tactical than forced ones. Led by Cristiano Ronaldo, the attacking unit could be the same despite Rafael Leao’s positive impact in the opener. William Carvalho could come in for Otavio in midfield. However, they would have to make do without the injured Danilo Pereira. It is unclear for how long he will be out. Meanwhile, Uruguay will continue to miss Ronald Araujo at the back. Otherwise, the main debate will be about who will play up front – Luis Suarez or Edinson Cavani.
