The fortunes of Portugal’s national team have been inextricably linked with Cristiano Ronaldo for nearly two decades. Is a new era upon us? Ronaldo was in tears as he made his way to the locker room following Portugal’s 1-0 loss to Morocco in the World Cup quarterfinals on Saturday. It remains to be seen if that was the last time the world saw Ronaldo on soccer’s international stage. If it is, it marks a huge moment for the Portugal team, given Ronaldo is its captain, record scorer and greatest ever player. Read: FIFA charges Argentina for disorder at World Cup match There’s a chance the team might also have a different coach for the first time since 2014 when qualification for the 2024 European Championship begins in March. EXPECTATION VS. PERFORMANCE Reaching the quarterfinals was the minimum expected of Portugal considering the depth of talent in its squad. The team sailed through the group phase by winning its opening two games. Coach Fernando Santos rotated most of his starting lineup for the final group-stage match against South Korea, which won 2-1 on a late goal, and then thrashed Switzerland 6-1 in the round of 16. Despite Morocco’s strong defense and status as the surprise of the tournament, Portugal was still expected to beat the North African nation in the quarterfinals so, in that sense, it is another missed opportunity and probably an overall underperformance by Ronaldo and his team. WHO’S OUT The world is waiting to see if the 37-year-old Ronaldo retires from international duty after scoring 118 goals — a record in men’s soccer — and making 196 appearances in his 19 years with the national team. If Ronaldo does continue, most likely it’s only for Euro 2024 and not also the 2026 World Cup, by which time he will be aged 41. At 39, center back Pepe is likely to have played his final major tournament. What’s more in doubt is the future of Santos, who took charge of Portugal in 2014 after four years at the helm of Greece’s national team. He has a contract through 2024 and repeatedly deflected any talk about leaving his post earlier after the loss to Morocco. “I will have a discussion with the (Portuguese soccer federation) president and when we go back to Portugal, we will deal with the issue of the contract,” Santos said. Read: US soccer journalist Grant Wahl dies at World Cup WHO’S NEXT A future without Ronaldo might be an alarming proposition but there’s talent coming through. Up front, there’s the 21-year-old Gonçalo Ramos, who scored a hat trick against Switzerland when standing in for Ronaldo in his first start for the national team. There’s much excitement about the development of António Silva, a 19-year-old center back at Benfica who seems the natural replacement for Pepe — a player more than twice Silva’s age. João Félix is only 23 so has time on his side, while full backs Diogo Dalot and Nuno Mendes are only 23 and 20, respectively. WHAT’S NEXT With or without Ronaldo, Portugal is the favorite in a kind-looking qualifying group for Euro 2024. Portugal opens group play in March with a home match against Liechtenstein. The other teams in Group J are Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iceland, Slovakia and Luxembourg. If Portugal reaches the tournament in Germany, expect the team to be among the favorites — even without its most famous player.
As Morocco's dream run continues, becoming the first ever African nation to qualify for the World Cup semifinals, one of the biggest names in the game has become a headline casualty of their incredible feat. Cristiano Ronaldo, at the age of 37 and what surely seems to be his last World Cup has crashed out of the tournament in the Quarter Finals stage along with his Portuguese teammates. Touted as one of the favorites to lift the trophy come December 18, thanks to Cristiano’s unmatched legacy and a new golden generation consisting of superstars like Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva, and Joao Felix, this comes as one of the massive upsets of this tournament which has already provided underdog stories for the ages. Portugal’s reputation as a footballing heavyweight though is something of a folklore built on the legacy of one man’s unquenchable thirst to be the absolute best there ever was. A brief look at the nation’s footballing history shows that the country has qualified for the World Cup seven times. The first was in 1966, the second time was 20 years later in 1986, and the third was in 2002. Since 2002 though, which can be termed as the beginning of the Cristiano Ronaldo Portuguese revolution, the team has consistently qualified for the world tournament. Therefore there is an assumption by the newer generation that Portugal as a footballing country has always been heavyweights as the fans today have never experienced the truly dark days of Portuguese football where they used to consistently fail to even make it to the tournament let alone dream of winning it. Ronaldo ever since breaking onto the scene has sometimes almost single handedly carried the country to the biggest stage in world football with repeated individual heroics to help them across the line. Most memorably in a World Cup qualifiers play off against Sweden back in 2013 where he scored a memorable hat trick to help his nation past a Sweden team bolstered by famous talents such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Read: Ronaldo benched against Morocco in World Cup quarterfinals Cristiano Ronaldo though is at the very top of the footballing legends food chain where even the little factors make a telling difference, and this is the World Cup we are talking about. His comparisons are with the likes of Pele, Maradona and Messi, with two of the three having won the World Cup and Lionel Messi proceeding to the semis in what seems to be his one last dance as well. One trophy though won’t be the one which defines the illustrious career of a champion athlete who has broken records of all sort in both International and Club levels. If this was the last time we saw Cristiano Ronaldo donning the Portugal shirt, he will be leaving with his head held high not only as the highest scorer in the history of Portuguese football but also as the highest goalscorer in the history of football period. Read: Portugal look to end Morocco’s World Cup run Even his most ardent critics and doubters may have shed a tear or two watching this absolute legend of the game leaving the World Cup stage for one last time in tears. Football may have won with Morocco proving yet again that the beauty of the game lives on, and that it belongs to everyone but the price fans around the world had to pay has been a big one. One of the most loved and the greatest players in history has bowed out of world football’s biggest stage for the very last time. No matter where his career takes him from here, the world of football will forever be grateful for the unimaginable, unforgettable and unbelievable contributions Cristiano Ronaldo has made for the beautiful game.
Cristiano Ronaldo was dropped from Portugal’s starting lineup for the second straight match at the World Cup. The 37-year-old Ronaldo won’t play from the outset in the quarterfinal match against Morocco on Saturday, after starting on the bench and then coming on as a substitute for the round-of-16 match against Switzerland. Gonçalo Ramos, who scored a hat trick on Tuesday in Portugal’s 6-1 win over Switzerland on his first start for Portugal, was again selected ahead of Ronaldo. Ronaldo is playing in his fifth and likely final World Cup. He was left out of the lineup against the Swiss after coach Fernando Santos expressed frustration about his team captain’s attitude in the previous game. Read more: Which World Cup starlet can replace Messi, Ronaldo? Santos later said Ronaldo was “not happy” to be told he was being benched, but never threatened to leave the World Cup because of the decision. Ronaldo, the all-time leading scorer in men’s international soccer with 118 goals, eventually came in as a replacement in the 74th minute. He had looked somewhat disconnected from the rest of the squad after the match, and had already shown a poor attitude after being substituted in the last group game against South Korea. Ronaldo was coming off lackluster performances in the group stage, though he scored in the 3-2 win against Ghana to become the first player to score in five World Cups. He has played in every edition of the tournament since 2006. Portugal’s other starters against Morocco at Al Thumama Stadium included João Félix, Bernardo Silva, Bruno Fernandes and Otávio.

Morocco is spending the World Cup like a dream. For the first time, the African team is playing in the quarterfinals at the World Cup stage. Portugal, who have never been able to play a final in a global tournament, are also in great form. These two teams are going to meet in the last eight of FIFA Qatar World Cup 2022. The whole world is waiting for a very enjoyable match between Portugal and Morocco in the quarter-finals. Let’s take a look at the Morocco vs Portugal Quarter-final match preview and where they are standing. Morocco vs Portugal: Head-to-Head Record So Far Before this, Morocco and Portugal met twice in the World Cup. The country of Arab heritage beat Portugal 3-1 in the 1986 World Cup. And in the last 2018 Russia World Cup, Portugal defeated Morocco by 1-0. Cristiano Ronaldo's only goal gave Portugal a win in that match. This time Portugal and Morocco are meeting in the quarterfinal! Where is the Venue of Morocco vs Portugal Match? Portugal and Morocco will meet in the fight to reach the semi-finals. The match starts at 9 pm Bangladesh time at Al Thumama Stadium in Doha. Read More: FIFA World Cup 2022: Quarter Final Overview Morocco's performance So Far in the 2022 World Cup Morocco debuted in the 1970 World Cup. In 1986, they became the first African country to pass the group stage of the World Cup. Morocco's last win in the World Cup was in 1998 against Scotland, and after that, they got their win in this World Cup against Belgium in the group stage. In the round of sixteen, Morocco defeated the former world champion Spain in a tiebreaker and made it to the quarter-finals. They are the first Arab country to reach the last eight of the World Cup. Walid Regragui is the first Arab coach to take a team to the knockout stages. He took charge of Morocco last September. The undefeated African team has played seven matches so far under his coaching. After drawing with Croatia in the group stage, they defeated Belgium and Canada, who were among the favorites of the tournament. That is why they are also called the dark horse of this World Cup. They have only conceded one goal so far, which was against Canada in the last match of the World Cup group stage. So far, the opposition has not been able to send the ball into the Moroccan net. Their only goal in four matches was a 2–1 loss against Canada in the group stage. The own goal was scored by defender Nayef Aguerd. Morocco's players to watch: Yassine Bounou, Achraf Hakimi, Sofyan Amrabat. Morocco's players carrying yellow cards: Abdelhamid Sabiri, Romain Saiss, Sofyan Amrabat. Read More: England vs France Quarter-final Preview: FIFA World Cup 2022 Portugal's Performance So Far in the 2022 World Cup 2016 Euro champions Portugal have never reached a World Cup final so far. Their debut on the world stage was in 1966. The team gave a great performance in the first season itself. They beat champions Brazil 3-1 and eliminated them from the group stage. They won all three matches and qualified for the next round. Portugal played in the semi-final in the same event. However, their journey ended with a 2-1 loss against England. After defeating the Soviet Union 2-1, the Portuguese finished third in the tournament. Which is their best success in the World Cup so far. They played in the semi-final in 2006 as well. On the other hand, Portugal started their World Cup journey by defeating Ghana 3-2 in the first match of the group stage. Then they beat the former world champion Uruguay 2-0. However, despite losing 2-1 to South Korea in the last match, the Portuguese reached the knockout stage as group champions. And Portugal showed world-class football in the round of 16 games against Switzerland. Portugal's 21-year-old forward Gonzalo Ramos scored the first hat-trick in the current season. He achieved this in a knockout stage match, in which Portugal beat Switzerland by 6-1. The Benfica forward became the first player since Germany's Miroslav Klose in 2002 to score a hat-trick in the starting XI for the first time in the World Cup. Scoring a goal will make Cristiano Ronaldo the all-time leading scorer for Portugal on the world stage. Currently, this record is held by Eusebio, he scored 9 goals in the World Cup, and he scored all in the 1966 tournament. It was his only World Cup appearance. Pepe scored a goal in an easy win over Switzerland. This Portuguese defender made history by scoring the goal at the age of 39 years and 283 days. He now holds the record for the oldest goal scorer in the knockout stages of the World Cup. Portugal has no injury report for the quarter-final game. It means the Portuguese will begin the game with full force. Portugal's players to watch: Gonzalo Ramos, Cristiano Ronaldo, Ruben Dias. Portugal's players carrying yellow cards: Danilo Pereira, Bruno Fernandes, Ruben Neves, Joao Felix, Ruben Dias. Read More: Ronaldo did not threaten to leave World Cup: Portugal coach Squad of Morocco and Portugal in the Quarter-final Match Probable starting squad of Morocco Bounou, Hakimi, Aguerd, Saiss, Mazraoui, Amrabat, Amallah, Ounahi, Ziyech, En-Nesyri, Boufal Probable starting squad of Portugal Costa, Dalot, Pepe, Dias, Guerreiro, Neves, Otavio, Silva, Fernandes, Felix, Ramos Quarterfinal Morocco vs Portugal match Result Prediction Although Portugal is the favorite in this match, Morocco's goalkeeper Yassine Bounou will be an obstacle to them. According to Opta Analyst's data, Portugal has a 55.8% chance to win in the 90 minutes, while Morocco has an 18.8% chance. If the game reaches a penalty shootout, Morocco has a 25.4% chance of winning. Final Words Both sides have the technical ability and quality to make it an exciting and unpredictable game. Morocco has a consistent recent record in this World Cup. However, with Ramos on the side, Portugal will be tough to beat. Hence, FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 quarterfinal’s Morocco vs Portugal match will be a close game.

Despite not knowing where he'll play beyond Qatar, Ronaldo eyes glory in possibly his last World Cup
Another game, another personal milestone. For all the turmoil that has surrounded Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of what is likely to be his final World Cup, the Portugal great continues make his mark. On Thursday he became the first man to score in five World Cups. Earlier this season he registered the 700th club goal of his career. Read more: Ghana coach slams ref after Ronaldo’s record World Cup goal Not bad for a 37-year-old, who doesn’t know where he will be playing beyond Qatar after having his Manchester United contract terminated in the wake of his incendiary interview criticizing manager Erik ten Hag and the club’s owners. A win against Uruguay on Monday would secure Portugal’s qualification from Group H to the knockout stages with a game to spare after its opening 3-2 win against Ghana. “This is just the beginning,” Ronaldo said in an Instagram post, adding that “there are no impossibilities.” But if soccer’s ultimate numbers man is to achieve his ambition of lifting the one major trophy that eludes him, he cannot do it by himself. That much was clear against Ghana, when Portugal also needed goals from Joao Felix and Rafael Leao to hold on for victory. Read more: Ronaldo makes history, becomes first male player to score at five World Cups Felix is the likeliest heir to Ronaldo’s throne as Portugal’s inspiration-in-chief – and has even been linked with a potential move to United. If Qatar is Ronaldo’s last World Cup dance, the moves are not quite as fluid as they once were. His goal against Ghana came from the penalty spot, rather than a moment of the type of individual brilliance on which his career has been built. That being said, FIFA Technical Study Group member Sunday Oliseh still described as “total genius” his ability to win a disputed foul from Mohammed Salisu that Ghana coach Otto Addo insisted should not have been awarded. Ronaldo’s celebrations suggested he does not care where the goals come from, so long as they keep on coming. But Portugal cannot solely rely on such moments — and amid the noise that surrounds its most celebrated player, it can be forgotten how much talent coach Fernando Santos has at his disposal. Not least Atletico Madrid forward Felix, United midfielder Bruno Fernandes and Bernardo Silva of Manchester City. Read more: Ronaldo's next club options after leaving Manchester United “A selection with the quality of ours has to be favorite in any game,” said Portugal forward Goncalo Ramos ahead of Uruguay at the Lusail Stadium. “It’s important to win the second game now.” Uruguay drew 0-0 with South Korea in its first game of the tournament. Like Portugal, Uruguay is blending the old and the new. Ronaldo’s long-time rival from their time at Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively, Luis Suarez, is in an attack that also features the country’s new generation of talent in Darwin Nunez and Facundo Pellistri. At 35, Suarez is no longer the force he once was and he was substituted just after the hour against South Korea. Another 35-year-old in Edinson Cavani replaced him, but Uruguay still couldn't find a goal. Ghana exposed vulnerabilities in Portugal’s defense – but Uruguay will need to be much more clinical if it is to capitalize on Monday. Ghana exposed vulnerabilities in Portugal’s defense, but Uruguay will need to be much more clinical if it is to capitalize on Monday. Besides, Cristiano Ronaldo can pose a real threat to the Uruguayan defense and is now motivated to continue to thrive in his last World Cup.

The World Cup trophy has been in Europe for a long time. Brazil became the champion in 2002. After that, four European countries took the cup in the following four tournaments. From that point, it seems Latin teams are having a bad time in World Cup. In addition to that top four European teams, such as Germany, Spain, France, and Portugal, have an excellent squad at Qatar World Cup. So, there is a good chance that the FIFA World Cup trophy 2022 may remain in Europe.

While one of the favorites, Italy, is out of the tournament, Germany, Spain, France, and Portugal join the tournament as favorites. However, the other 9 teams also have a good chance to surprise the world. But we will focus on these four teams.

France Table: France Squad at a glance Positions Players Who can Make the Difference Defend Rapahel Varane, William Saliba Midfield Eduardo Camavinga Attack Kylian Mbappe, Antonine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele French coach Didier Deschamps has announced the final squad for the 2022 World Cup with 11 players from the team that won the World Cup in Russia. The 25-member squad was announced at a press conference in Paris. Midfielders N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba are out of the squad due to injuries. However, Karim Benzema, who won the Ballon d’Or this year, returned to the attack. But Benzema is also out of the tournament as he was injured during the training session. Defending champions France have not performed much better in the Nations League. However, some uniqueness has been noticed in their game. Their previous formation seems to have 4-2-3-1. However, with Benzema’s inclusion, Deschamps might have played a 3-4-1-2 formation. Now that Benzema is out, the manager will have to think of a new formation or use the 4-2-3-1.

As Varane is doubtful, Arsenal defender William Saliba could come in that place. He is also young, which is both positive and negative for the team because of his experience level. Young players can also be seen in front of the stoppers. Since Pogba and Kante are gone, Real Madrid’s Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni will play in their place. Both of them are solid midfielders. Deschamps always introduces new tactics using young players. But it must also be said that Deschamps is the kind of coach who decides the formation after seeing the opponent. At this stage, however, there is not much room for experimentation. But they have much more talented footballers. All 23 of France’s squad are world-class players. There are some of them who have the ability to turn the match at any time. Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele are two of the best young players in the world of football today. Apart from this, there are great players like Nabil Fekir and Antoine Griezmann. Any one of them has the power to influence the outcome of a match in a moment of magic. Read More: Qatar Squad analysis for 2022 FIFA Football World Cup Overall, Coach Didier Deschamps is the biggest tonic of the France team who was the captain of France’s winning 1998 World Cup team. He has been the coach of France since 2012. As a result, Deschamps got the opportunity to organize his own team for a long time. And we have seen the outcome of the 2018 World Cup. Hence, France has a great chance to retain the World Cup. Spain Table: Spain Squad at a glance Positions Players Who Can Make the Difference Defense Jordi Alba, Pau Torres Midfielder Sergi Busquets, Gavi, Pedri, Koke Attack Ferran Torres, Pablo Sarabia, Morata Spain grabbed their long-deserved World Cup in 2010. There isn’t much history in football that won so many top tournaments within a decade. With Cassius, Iniesta, Puyol, and Xavi, Spain has passed its golden time. But, they failed miserably in the following two World Cups as they struggled to pass the group stage and second round. However, under the coaching of Luis Enrique, a new group of stars has started to make the Spanish dream of winning the World Cup again. Will they get their second title? Read More: Messi or Ronaldo: Who has better chance at leading team to FIFA World Cup win? Time will answer that question. But, the Spain team, built with a mixture of youth and experience, has the ability to do great things. Goalkeeper Unai Simon will be Enrique’s first choice under the posts. However, the Spain coach has excellent options in the goalkeeper position. Robert Sánchez and David Raya are also capable of playing their own roles if needed. Spain is also very strong in defense. Cesar Azpilicueta, Pau Torres, Erik García, and Jordi Alba are very effective in adapting to any situation. Pedri and Koke will be upfront with Sergio Busquets in the midfield.

How Enrique utilizes the Manchester City star, who has great passing ability, could also play a role in shaping the course of Spain’s game. And in the forward line, Enrique will rely on Ferran Torres, Pablo Sarabia, and Morata. They can be seen in multiple roles, even by changing positions. Apart from this, stars like Dani Olmo, Ansu Fati, Gavi, or Nico Gonzalez will be waiting for an opportunity from the bench as an alternative even if they do not get a place in the eleven. It can be said that Enrique has all the enviable options in his hands, which can cause this coach to have a lot of trouble in arranging the eleven. All in all, the mix of youth and experience in the Spain team is quite good. Read More: FIFA World Cup: 5 players who can win the Golden Ball in Qatar All in all, Spain’s way of attacking may be in a 2-3-5 formation, where the fullbacks come forward as an attacking and possession-based team, and the wingers play inverted roles. In the recent matches they have won, the results seem to be seen that they have struggled. But Enrique’s team was much ahead of the opponent in possession of the ball in almost all the matches. However, scoring does not reflect such strong football. Apparently, Spain is heading a team like the 2010 World Cup. After France, they have a huge chance to win the World Cup.

However, this year Portugal has a young, energetic team under Cristiano Ronaldo’s captaincy. This may be the last World Cup for the 37-year-old star, Ronaldo. He will definitely want to grab the desired trophy. However, in addition to Ronaldo, there are a few other stars in the Portugal team who can change the game. Read More: Portugal Squad Analysis for 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar With Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva, Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias, Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes, and AC Milan’s Rafael Leao, this time Portugal has a promising team. All these players have been in great form in their club matches. Although the squad is good, Portugal has never played a World Cup final before. Overall, team Portugal mostly depends on Ronaldo. Other players’ lack of experience in big tournaments may hold the team back. Also, Portugal’s knockout against Belgium in Euro 2021 also portrays a poor team performance. However, they have easy opponents in the group stage. Despite being a good squad, Portugal has a 50-50 chance.

Never since World War II has Germany been eliminated before the quarter-finals of two consecutive international football tournaments. There is not much optimism about Germany in this year’s World Cup in Qatar. Even the German team doesn’t have much hope for themselves. This is evident from the words of Antonio Rudiger, one of the most important stars of the team. The German defender of Real Madrid thinks that it will be a big ‘shock’ if Germany becomes the champion in Qatar World Cup. Read More: Germany Squad Analysis for 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar This time, such a Germany is going to play the World Cup in Qatar, about whom the British media, The Guardian says, “The Germany team are at a historic low.” Germany was knocked out in the group stage at the FIFA World Cup in Russia four years ago and failed to make it past the second round after losing to England at the Euros. After winning the World Cup in 2014, many of their golden generations quit the game. In those places, the replacement was not really done that way. Muller is still their hope in scoring goals. The team did not do well in the Nations League either. All in all, nothing big can be expected from them. But it is also true Hansi Flick will try to build a combination with this team. Read More: 5 rising stars to watch for in FIFA World Cup 2022 Apart from Muller, 19-year-old midfielder Jamal Musiala is another hope for the team. Musiala’s big strength is his build, and he can move through defenses quickly because of his physical build. Another special thing about Musiala is that he is good with both feet; his shot power is quite good at this age. Overall, Germany has almost zero chance of surviving in this World Cup unless any miracle happens. Final Words This is the World Cup stage, and anything can happen. Though several countries from Europe-America are making strong claims for the championship, it is difficult to say which country will win. So far, we have analyzed the potentials of four European squads including Germany, Spain, France, and Portugal in the 2022 FIFA World Cup. However, as per the analysis, if we have to pick from Europe, France has the ultimate chance. Read More: Brazil Team Analysis for 2022 World Cup in Qatar
