Skipper Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to power his team to an imperative victory. The talismanic number 7 didn’t hide his discontentment at his team’s embarrassing situation while speaking to reporters ahead of Saturday’s qualifier:
“It’s not a tranquil team, as the results haven’t been those we want,” Ronaldo explained.
The Seleccaos are on the brink of loosing out from a place in the finals. Failing to win in Porto this weekend will meen just that.
