Portuguese legend, Luis Figo, has claimed he does not think Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal will win the World Cup in Brazil.
Though he acknowledged his country's chances are higher than some others, he does not think they are among the favorites for the tournament.
"I think Portugal can make a good tournament depending on how the players arrive in physical condition in the World Cup. But, of course, Portugal depends a lot on Cristiano Ronaldo, so it depends if he is fit or not, and depending on his performance in the World Cup," Figo told Laureus.com.
"I think Portugal is not in the line of the favourites in national teams, but probably they are in the second line.
"But it is like everything; if you start well in the competition and you do the first phase of groups well, you start to win confidence and everything can happen after that.
"But right now I think there are other national teams with more potential than Portugal."
Figo also said he believes Ronaldo is one of the best players in the world at the moment, but success at the World Cup would put him amongst the greatest players of all time.
"To be remembered like Pelé or Maradona? Well, if you want to be remembered like that in the World Cups, of course, you have to win, but in his general image and the prestige he has, I don’t think he needs that."
