Five time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo will be leading his nation against the ultimate underdogs Morocco tonight. The Portuguese team finds themselves in great form after their dominant 6-1 win against Switzerland in their round of 16 match. Portugal team manager Fernando Santos hinted that Ronaldo might not start the match tonight despite all the controversies from the previous match. Players like Bruno Fernandes and G. Ramos has to step up in his absence. On the other hand Morocco defeated the 2010 World Champions Spain in a nerve wrecking match.

France looks unstopable as the trio of Mbappe, Griezmann and Dembelle performed as expected. There were also rumours of the current Ballon d’Or winner to return and join the team but according to sources Benzema needs three weeks to recover from the injury. On the other hand English forward Raheem Sterling has been confirmed to make his comeback in the team. The unbeaten England led by Harry Kane would be looking to continue their streak and confirm their spot in the semi finals.
