Pundit Goes On Crazy Rant To 'Prove' Ronaldo Is Better Than Messi

Portugal sit top of Group B following a 1-nil victory over Morocco in Moscow, where Cristiano Ronaldo scored his fourth goal of the tournament.

Ronaldo´s goal was his fourth goal of the tournament, more than his combined tally at three previous finals, and left him trailing just Iran´s Ali Daei (109) on the list of top global scorers.

Iran played toe-to-toe with Spain and deserved more from the match, but Spain's central defense made some important stops, got the victor in the second half and held on to move into a tie for first place with Portugal in Group B.

Portugal, who drew 3-3 in their opener against Spain, next play Iran on Monday.

"Ronaldo embraces the pressure of playing for Portugal".

Argentina clinched a spot in the World Cup when Messi had a hat trick in his team's final qualifier, a 3-1 win at Ecuador on October 10. It wasn't the greatest showing from the Portuguese, as Morocco controlled possession and created more chances, but the finishing was abysmal.

Iran held their own in the first half as Spain failed to break down Carlos Queiroz's side, but Hierro insists that he was never expecting an easy turnover.

What OPEC's Solidarity Means for Oil
Trump slapped fresh sanctions on Tehran in May and market watchers expect Iran's output to drop by a third by the end of 2018. Russian Federation and other non-OPEC oil producers will now meet OPEC in a bid to secure their participation in the pact.

In addition, the defender cited Ronaldo's work ethic, as he continues to battle having achieved so much success in his career, as something that can't help but inspire his Portugal team-mates.

Ronaldo when he left Portugal, even at Manchester United, I remember he had a year where they said he can go back (but he wanted to stay and fight at Old Trafford)'. I doubt if that guy will see another minute of action in the World Cup.

"I think we all look forward to watching Messi and his and Ronaldo's head-to-head over the last seven to eight years is quite remarkable", said Orient's head coach, when talking to EnergyBet about his tips for the 2018 World Cup.

Russian Federation are celebrating after Wednesday's results confirmed they have qualified for the knockout round for the first time since the Soviet era along with Uruguay, condemning Mohamed Salah's Egypt and Saudi Arabia to an early exit.

"It's the same thing that he does in every match".

All hopes of Messi lifting the World Cup in has arguably the last appearance at the event seems to be fading away.

"I think obviously my choice would be England to win the competition, but that's me being biased and passionate about my country", he said.
