Ronaldo is currently without a team at the club level and his performance in the World Cup will play an important role in deciding which team the legend will join in the future. The peak of Ronaldo, who was elected the best player of the year five times, has probably passed, but when he is in his color then no team can stand in front of him.

Ronaldo had said before parting ways with Manchester United by mutual consent that issues related to his club would not affect him during Portugal’s World Cup campaign. Ronaldo is yet to win the World Cup and getting the trophy for the first time will be his motivation in this World Cup. Also attracting a new club would be a bonus for them.

Ghana is also adept at wreaking havoc

Portugal is facing Ghana in the first match itself, which is the lowest ranking team participating in the World Cup but it is being considered as the dark horse. Ghana’s world ranking is 61. There are also teams capable of causing upsets in this group like Uruguay and South Korea. Ghana have players like Thomas Partey and Mohamed Qudus who have done well for European clubs. Portugal has to be careful with these players.
