Cristiano Ronaldo is going to be the danger-man for Portugal when they begin their World Cup campaign in Group B as they battle Morocco, Iran and Spain.
They kick-off their competition against Spain in Moscow on June 15 and Ronaldo plots to add to his 81 goals from 149 caps.
However, they were few concerns over the form of the Portuguese this season as Real Madrid struggled for consistency in Spain’s domestic competitions.
Ronaldo’s form may have been the reason why Real Madrid legend, Ronaldo Nazario has surprisingly left him out of his yearly World’s Greatest XI team.
The bold statement from the Brazilian was even more shocking when a look at the list saw Lionel Messi included. Messi was the only player from this generation that made the list.
Other legendary names like Diego Maradona, Pele and Gianluigi Buffon were mentioned. While there was no place for the likes of Xavi and Iniesta in midfield.
