  • Portugal vs Morocco

Portugal defender Pepe said it was a "privilege" for the country to have a player like Cristiano Ronaldo after the Real Madrid star's dazzling display against Spain on Friday.

"Morocco are an excellent team, one of the best in Africa, and they have an excellent coach in Hervé Renard", Santos said on Tuesday. In the fourth minute of the Wednesday's World Cup match, Ronaldo picked up his fourth goal of the tournament on an incredibly aggressive header after an impressive cross.

Ronaldo, after his fearless header, also became the first Portugal player since José Torres in 1966 to score a goal with his right foot, left foot and head in a single World Cup. You should know that only top 2 teams from each group will qualify for the knockout round of 16. They've always played to their full intensity on the pitch and we have to respond to that.

"We can not underestimate them and must have respect for any opponent".

Pepe, the Portuguese centre-half, was more open about the wonderful first game of his teammate. "I´m very happy, it´s a nice personal record to have, one more in my career", Ronaldo said.

"We have to impose our qualities and give our best".

"I hope he and our team are ready", he added. "The first game was a good sign for us". Aziz Bouhaddouz's 96th-minute own goal consigned the Moroccans to defeat and handed Iran only their second-ever win at the finals.

"I can say that [he] makes things easier, he is the best in the world".

The 49-year-old Frenchman, who had a spell in charge of Cambridge United in 2004, also had to field questions about how they are going to defend against Ronaldo.

He said: "We can not wait... to face Portugal, we are not dead yet, we all believe in success to make our supporters and the Moroccan people proud".

"We lost a battle but we haven´t lost the war".
