Portugal vs Morocco LIVE World Cup 2018: Cristiano Ronaldo scores record-breaking goal - latest score, updates

Is this the World Cup where Cristiano Ronaldo finally sets the world alight on a global stage? Judging by his first appearance in Russia, it seems so.

The Real Madrid superstar's exceptional hat-trick - including a wonderful free-kick - earned Portugal a well-deserved draw in their opening game against Spain last week.

Morocco, on the other hand, were on the wrong end of a shock 1-0 defeat to Iran, meaning they are one defeat away from booking their flights home from Russia.

Prediction

​Portugal 2-0 Morocco. Ronaldo looks on it, make no mistake about it. Just look at how he bullies smaller teams in the Champions League to get a taster of what he could do in the remaining two games in this group. It is feasible Portugal qualify for the Round of 16 with Ronaldo on six or seven goals personally.
