Portugal vs. Ghana will be played this Thursday, November 24, from 11:00 am (Peruvian time), at Stadium 974 in Doha, for the first date of Group H of the Qatar 2022 World Cup. This will be a great challenge for the ‘Lusos’, who aspire to go far, hand in hand with Cristiano Ronaldo, the main figure and captain of the team.
Precisely, the goalscorer was the center of attention in recent days, first for giving an interview in which he criticized managers, coaches and teammates at Manchester United. Later, as a consequence, the English club decided to end the contract of ‘CR7’, by mutual agreement, causing a huge surprise.
The news caused a strong impact, but coach Fernando Santos clarified that external issues have not distracted the Portuguese squad. According to the strategist’s press conference, neither Cristiano Ronaldo nor his teammates have touched on the issue of what happened with the ‘Red Devils’.
As for sports, the Ghanaian team is emerging as a tough rival for Portugal, especially due to the physical strength and speed that the African squad proposes. The ‘Black Stars’ have some nationalized players, such as Iñaki Williams and Tariq Lamptey; and established, such as Mohammed Salisu, Thomas Partey and Jordan Ayew.
In the same way, it is worth mentioning that Cristiano Ronaldo will have the opportunity to put his name in the history of the World Cups: he will join the select list of footballers who played five editions and could set the scoring record in each of those tournaments, something that no one has achieved.
