Portugal To Lock Horns With Spain Tomorrow @ 5pm
The day 2 of the World Cup will to us a wonderful moment of soccer game, as Spain take on neighboring Portugal in the battle for the first Group B match.
Though sides are the toughest in the group should not be over confidence in themselves by writing other the likes of Morocco and Iran for such accomplishment.
Spain will be desperate to fix the impression after a rather poor challenge at EURO 2016 when they were stopped to Italy in the last 16 round after also losing the group stage match to Croatia earlier on.
Portugal come into the competition as the reigning European champions, but can they repeat a remarkable success two years later in Russia?
Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo will obviously be the key to nation’s success. He will come into the event high on confidence after securing his third consecutive Champions League trophy with Real Madrid.
Spain Boss Julen Lopetegui does not have important injury woes ahead of the opening fixture against Portugal.
