DOHA: Portugal refused to give any comment on the controversy surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo, apart from the team’s cold relationship with the media, instead its priority was action at the Qatar World Cup.
Fernando Santos’ squad will face Ghana at midnight tomorrow and want the result of the match and the action on the field as the ‘best answer’ to the questions raised.
Portugal, who are also Euro 2016 champions, beat Nigeria 4-0 in the final warm-up before leaving for Qatar, thus giving relief to the supporters following a previous lackluster performance.
Ghana also proved how ready they are for this campaign when they scored a 2-0 win over Switzerland in a friendly.
The match at the 974 Stadium in Doha gave both teams a chance to determine their course to advance to the knockout rounds.
In addition to Portugal and Ghana, Group H is also lined up with Uruguay and South Korea.
“The atmosphere in the dressing room is very good, there are no problems. This group is immune. I took this opportunity to say stop asking about me,” said Ronaldo.
Ronaldo led Portugal to the Euro 2016 trophy, but the Russia 2018 World Cup did not go in his favor and Qatar will be his last field of action at the tournament.- AGENCY
