Cristiano Ronaldo is bidding to lead Portugal to World Cup glory in Qatar as he seeks the one major title missing from his trophy cabinet… but he’ll probably have to watch on from the bench.

All the talk off the pitch has been about Cristiano Ronaldo’s next club after the 37-year-old left Manchester United following his controversial interview with Piers Morgan.

But he’s also attracted headlines on the field by becoming the first player in history to score at five World Cups when netting against Ghana, as well as trying to nick one of Bruno Fernandes’ goals against Uruguay, before being dropped for the Switzerland match.

Portugal’s next match at the World Cup

Portugal progressed to the last eight of the World Cup by topping Group H before battering Switzerland in the last 16.

Cristiano Ronaldo was on the scoresheet in the 3-2 win against Ghana, Bruno Fernandes bagged a brace as Portugal secured a 2-0 victory over Uruguay, before the Euro 2016 winners suffered a 2-1 defeat to South Korea. Ronaldo was dropped for the Swiss match for his petulant reaction to being substituted against South Korea and his replacement, Goncalo Ramos, hit a hat-trick in the 6-1 rout.

Portugal’s reward for thrashing Switzerland is a last-eight fixture against Spain’s conquerers Morocco.

The match will take place at the Lusail Stadium on Saturday, December 10.
