While the media for most groups staying at the World Cup is centered around what will put on the pitch,

the situation are different for Portugal, where everybody is discussing whether Cristiano Ronaldo will-or ought to -

play against Morocco on Saturday morning. The response to both of those questionsis likely no in light of what we found in the Round of 16,

when the Ronaldo-less Portugal whipped Switzerland, 6-1, on the strength of a full go-around from Goncalo Ramos,

the one who took Ronaldo's spot in the beginning XI. Despite everything their inconsistent hotshot, Portugal is a major

#1 to propel past the competition's Cinderella, Morocco. The game is set to begin at 10 a.m. ET on Saturday morning on FOX.

Before the competition, there were a lot of genuine inquiries to pose of Portugal. The ability was plainly there with Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes,

Joao Felix, and Bernardo Silva. StilI, the Portuquese generally is by all accounts a stage off under Fernando Santos,

who was referred to be excessively moderate as a supervisor for a group with this much starb power.

Instead of inclining toward the going after ability available to him, Santos' Portugal would frequently play with the preparation wheels on

and were called out for doing whatever it takes not to lose as opposed to win. However, this competition has been a little different for Santos' side.

Portugal has played three high-occasion matches, including the previously mentioned sticking of Switzerland, recently.
