Consecutive victories. Qualifying with a game left. Cristiano Ronaldo is already one of the goalscorers. The group stage could hardly have gone better for Portugal at the 2022 FIFA World Cup. A loose end has yet to be tied up.
Portugal need a point in their final Group H match against South Korea on Friday (December 2) to finish first. That may come with an advantage: avoiding Brazil in the last 16. “If we had to face each other, it would be a game between two great teams,” said Portuguese coach Fernando Santos. “But our wish, and Brazil’s, is that we meet later.”
After Monday’s 2-0 win over Uruguay, Santos said he had no plans to rest too many key players against South Korea. Ronaldo may be an exception. Three games in nine days could prove too much for the 37-year-old striker, who has played no significant minutes this season for Manchester United – the England team that recently terminated his contract with Ronaldo following his explosive pre-World Cup . interview with the club manager, owners and even his teammates.
Ronaldo missed team practice on Wednesday, completing a session in the gym instead, and there is a chance he could be saved for the last 16. That would give the likes of Gonçalo Ramos or Andre Silva a rare chance to start at the front. “He’s training today,” Santos said of Ronaldo on Thursday. “If he is physically good enough, he will play. I don’t even know if the odds are 50-50. It depends on our training session. I hope he can play.”
Also missing are central defender Danilo Pereira, who broke three ribs in training last week, and left back Nuno Mendes, who was substituted against Uruguay in the first half due to a muscle injury and is ruled out for the rest of the World Cup.
