Cristiano Ronaldo-led Portugal are set to open their 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign with a meeting against Ghana in what will be a repeat of the 2014 World Cup. These two sides were also in the same group at the time and the Portuguese won 2-1 , but were still eliminated from the tournament.
Amid all the noise surrounding their captain Ronaldo’s interview and his subsequent departure from Manchester United, the Euro 2016 winners will try to stay focused on the task at hand. On the other hand, Ghana has reached the post-2014 FIFA World Cup after missing the previous edition in 2018.
The Black Stars are led to Otto Addo, who made his first appearance in the Ghanaian team at the World Cup in 2006, so he will know a thing or two about the biggest podium. Ghana hopes to upset Portugal, who will rely on Cristiano Ronaldo’s ability to silence his haters and make a statement.
