Portugal faces off with Morocco

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo, with blue captain's armband, heads the ball to score the opening goal during the group B match between Portugal and Morocco at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, Russia on Jun 20, 2018.

But it is another former Bayern Munich forward, Iran's Ali Daei, whom Ronaldo will need to overhaul as the all-time top scorer in the history of worldwide football.

Ronaldo equalled Puskas' record of 84 - scored in just 89 matches - with a thrilling hat-trick in Friday's absorbing 3-3 draw with pool rivals Spain.

"I think we are stronger than Morocco if we compare the two teams, but I'm not saying the game will be easy for us", striker Andre Silva told reporters at Portugal's training base.

Morocco need to bounce back from their agonising defeat against Iran but Portugal, and Ronaldo in particular, pose Herve Renard's men a monumental challenge at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium.

The Atlas Lions roared in their second 2018 World Cup game against Portugal.

"We have to look at this and we have to talk about it", Portugal coach Santos said.

Senegal remain the only side to have won after the first round of matches.

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo (centre) heads in the match-winning goal in the fourth minute against Morocco. "We have to give our everything".

Ronaldo's four goals tops the individual scoring chart at the World Cup.

Yet aside from the goal, it was not a vintage display by Ronaldo or Portugal, who were caused problems by a spirited Morocco team. 'And I hear from Pepe that he asked in the first half if he should have his shirt, what are we talking about?

What is impressive to Soares about Ronaldo is his efficiency, as the 33-year-old has been able to make the most of his chances thus far in Russian Federation to deliver a huge impact on the tournament.

The 49-year-old Frenchman, who had a spell in charge of Cambridge United in 2004, also had to field questions about how they are going to defend against Ronaldo.
