Ronaldo has scored all of Portugal’s four goals in the tournament so far, a superb hat-trick in the 3-3 draw with Spain, and A Selecao's 1-0 winner against Morocco, which saw him become the European all-time record scorer.

Portugal have picked up four points so far, but need at least a draw against the side coached by former Bafana Bafana boss Queiroz, who managed the 2016 UEFA European Championship winners between 2008 and 2010.

Iran, who won their first game 1-0 against Morocco before losing 1-0 to Spain, need to beat Portugal in order to make it to the knockout rounds.

Portugal have lost only one of their past 13 games in all competitions, while Iran have lost three of their past seven games.
