Ronaldo Talks Up Portugal's WC Chances

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has given his thoughts on Portugal's chances at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Messi Overtakes Ronaldo On Forbes Rich List

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner helped his country defy all odds two years ago, when A Selecao went on to become the 2016 European champions, despite not being one of the favourites.

At a reception held by Portugal's president in Lisbon, Ronaldo guaranteed his nation's fans that he and his teammates would be doing their utmost to win the World Cup, even though not many are backing them to do so.

"What I can guarantee is a great ambition of all of us players and technical team," the Los Blancos talisman said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"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 challenging, 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 (as at Euro 2016), fight to the end, always keeping hope that in football everything is possible. Step by step see what will happen, what the competition will bring us, and for us it 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 for having us here for us is a privilege, thank you very much."

How Portugal Could Line Up At The World Cup

The Euro 2016 champions were drawn in Group B alongside Spain, Morocco and Iran.
