Cristiano Ronaldo said it was very important Portugal open their World Cup account on a very good note as they play against the Black Stars of Ghana on Thursday.
He noted that Portugal is one of the best team in the tournament and they must have to prove it on the pitch.
“I feel that this Portugal squad has amazing potential. I think we can win for sure, but we need to focus on the next game. So, it’s focusing in Ghana, get a win and go from there.
“We will see in the end who the best team is, but I believe Portugal is the best team in this World Cup. But we need to show it on the pitch.
“I’m feeling great, I’m recovered and I’m training well and ready to start the World Cup in the best way possible,” said Ronaldo.
He added his dispute with Manchester United will not affect the team in Qatar.
“In my life, the best timing is always my timing,” Ronaldo said on Monday.
“I don’t have to think about what other people think. I speak when I want. The players know me really well for many years and know the type of person I am.
“It’s an ambitious group that is hungry and focused. So I’m sure it [the interview] won’t shake the changing room’s concentration and focus.”
