Portugal will be taking on Iran in their third game of the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia. This matchup will be played in Group B, and it has crucial importance to it.
Iran after winning the first game against Morocco lost the other one to Spain. Even though they still have three points on the board, the team will have to pull off a miracle against their opponents in the next game.
The team has shown great resilience in the defence. If they keep that up, their chances of scoring at the end of the game will increase and so will the probability of them advancing.
UEFA Euro Cup 2016 Champions Portugal after drawing their first game to Spain, won their next against Morocco. The team has Cristiano Ronaldo as captain, who has already bagged four goals in this tournament.
However, they did look disjointed in the second half of the game and seemed to have succumbed to the pressure of Morocco. Had their opponents been more clinical, the scoreline would’ve been different. This is an issue that coach Fernando Santos will be looking to solve.
Both teams have a chance of qualifying only if they win this game and it is going to be stellar show nonetheless.
