Cristiano Ronaldo dominates the headlines as Portugal begin their World Cup journey against Ghana today.
The superstar forward is now unattached at club level after his acrimonious early exit from Manchester United, but still seems fully focused on the task at hand in Qatar.
Both Ronaldo and coach Fernando Santos give this freakishly talented Portuguese squad reasons to doubt themselves. The brand of football under Santos is hardly inspiring, while the idea that a 37-year-old Ronaldo is blocking emerging talent is just as prevalent on the international stage as it is at club level.
Ghana, meanwhile, edged past Nigeria in the qualifiers to book their spot in the finals. Coach Otto Addo is working on a part-time basis as things stand in conjunction with his role as a scout for Borussia Dortmund and oversees a team in transition, with the continued presence of the Ayew brothers up front a sore subject.
