  • Portugal striker Cristiano Ronaldo

Portugal began their World Cup campaign with a thrilling 3-3 draw with Spain, during which captain Ronaldo scored an incredible hat-trick, including a fantastic free-kick in the final few minutes of the game. "Portugal have the capacity to do better than we played against Spain and I hope we can correct our mistakes". "He's very happy to be here with us and every match it's a privilege for us Portuguese to have a player such as him". 'And I hear from Pepe that he asked in the first half if he should have his shirt, what are we talking about?

Portugal now move a single point above Iran in Group B, who play Spain this evening - while the North African remain without a point after two games. "We have to look at this, we lost control of the game", he said. "We have to give our everything. It was a surprise at the start because they were so strong".

"If I have a good memory, he was injured in the final against France and his team-mates managed to make the difference anyway".

Spain beat Iran 1-0 with Costa's third goal of World Cup
It is a formula that nearly thwarted Spain and should be good enough to trouble Portugal in a match that is now win or bust. But, Iran's defence was packed and frustrated their opponents, who couldn't find a way to break through.

And Renard said: "Even if you conjure up the best plans to halt Ronaldo, he will find a way to break free".

Portugal struggled to impose themselves and ended up defending for long spells, leaving coach Fernando Santos unimpressed. "He knows himself well and what he needs to do".

Cristiano Ronaldo leaps high in the air after scoring his 85th goal for Portugal, the second-most in global football.

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.

This is the World Cup, where the lovely game is showcased, and there is no place for attacks like this with kids watching from home.

"Of course, he is the essential element. but we need to sleep well tonight, eh!" Things do not work like this. "If you don't do that, then you get into trouble". It's a quality the defender does not believe is matched by anyone in the world. Renard said he was still smarting from the disappointment but said that the players alone were not to blame.
