XtraTime Web Desk: Portugal will have to face a greater scrutiny after 2016 Euro triumph as they will play in the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2018. Cristiano Ronaldo will be their most valuable player in the squad. How well he can play in the big stage will decide the prospects of Portugal. Ronaldo’s record of scoring goals isn’t very impressive as he scored just three goals in thirteen World Cup games.

CR7 played comparatively well in 2016 Euro as he got three goals and assisted thrice among his nine appearances. Though he played just 15 minutes in the Final as he had to stretchered off with an injury following a challenge by France’s Dimitri Payet. Ronaldo cried in pain and hobbled around the sideline but his teammates fought hard and gifted him the all-important trophy.

He became the highest scorer for his country in the World Cup qualifiers as they made the finals. But will this 33-year midfielder able to deliver the same as he did two years earlier? The poster boy of Portugal Football is now fraction slower, which gives defenders across Europe that extra second to put in the crunching tackle. He scored some prolific goals with free - kicks but, in the last season CR7 failed to score a single goal with free – kick.

The goal machine of Real Madrid has to fight hard to have a good result in this World cup.
