Ronaldo's goal helps Portugal knock Morocco out of World Cup 2018

Cristiano Ronaldo Portugal 2018

And when I need him he's always by my side.

Portugal went on to win the Euro two years ago, having drawn their first game with Iceland, but Santos warned that they can not just rely on their captain to bail them out.

- Portugal's only defeat against African opposition at the World Cup came against Morocco in 1986 (1-3) - they've won two and drawn one of their subsequent three games against them.

Morocco will have the chance to restore some pride by claiming a result from their final Group B game against Spain and will then head home disappointed not to have had more to show for two good displays in Russian Federation, while Portugal took a huge step towards the last 16. Renard said he was still smarting from the disappointment but said that the players alone were not to blame.

With Spain also big favorites against Iran and Morocco, goal difference could make a difference in the standings. "Portugal have the capacity to do better than we played against Spain and I hope we can correct our mistakes".

The Morocco defender Nabil Dirar added: "Tomorrow will be a final for us, an important battle".

Uruguay´s forward Luis Suarez kicks the ball during a training session at the Rostov Arena in Rostov-On-Don on June 19, 2018, on the eve of the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group A match between Saudi Arabia and Uruguay. "Any game at the World Cup is hard".

In other matches on Tuesday, Japan beat 10-man Colombia 2-1 before Poland lost by the same scoreline to Senegal as the pre-tournament favourites to advance from Group H suffered upsets. His third goal in that game was also the first time he'd scored from direct free-kick in a major global tournament, at the 45th attempt.

The 33-year-old Real Madrid forward scored in the fourth minute against Morocco to give Portugal the early lead.
