One of the most sought after teams of the FIFA World Cup, Portugal, will be playing their first group match against a formidable opponent Ghana today. Portugal has a star-studded line-up with them which includes Cristiano Ronaldo, Bernardo Silva and Andre Silva, among others. Despite being a popular team in the football world, they have reached the World Cup semi-finals only two times — in 1966 and 2006. What makes this game even more interesting is that this could be CR7’s last World Cup.

The last and the only head-to-head till date between these two teams took place in 2014 World Cup where the outcome favoured the Portugal side. Notably, Portugal have won only three of their last 14 World Cup matches and each of their victories came in the group stage. On the other hand, this will be Ghana’s fourth appearance in the FIFA World Cups.
