Portugal must think big: Ronaldo

Football News: The Portuguese talisman knows his side, who will envisage Spain, Morocco, and Iran in the world cup group stage matches, and he also knows that his team is not among the favourites.

Ronaldo is optimistic about this world cup.

The Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo knows that in this world cup his country is not among the favourites to win the silverware, but he has urged to his national teammates to think big as nothing is impossible.

Two years ago Portugal defied the odds to become the European champions under Ronaldo’s captaincy and now Fernando Santos’s boys are ready to give their all in the world’s biggest carnival.

The Five times Ballon d’Or winner voiced: "What I can guarantee is a great ambition of all of us players and technical team.

"We know we are not the favourites, we have to be realistic, but in football nothing is impossible.

"I think we must think match by match. The first match, the group stage will be extremely difficult but I think that with these players we need to think big and I am confident that we will give our best."

"What I can say is that we will do the same [of Euro 2016] fight to the end always keeping hope that in football everything is possible,"

The Portuguese captain voiced: "Step by step see what will happen, what the competition will bring us and for us is a privilege to represent Portugal's colours [and] represent this nation.

"We will give our best and wait to see what we will get from it. Thank you very much to have us here for us is a privilege, thank you very much."

Portugal will kick off their world cup campaign on June 15th against Spain.
