Portugal’s national soccer team on Tuesday hit the pitch in Moscow to prepare for its upcoming World Cup clash against Morocco, having drawn 3-3 in its opening tie against Spain.

Ronaldo, whose hat-trick on Friday may have dented Spain top goalkeeper David de Gea’s confidence, worked alongside his teammates after recovering from some slight ankle pain.

“Morocco did not concede a single goal in qualifying. We have to trust our team and our qualities,” the 22-year-old said on the squad’s official Twitter account.

Meanwhile, Portugal has held the most difficult opposition in the pool. From here, things should get slightly easier for Portugal and they look promising to also make the Round of 16. If Portugal beat Morocco, they would have one foot in the next stage, but going by the trends of the FIFA World Cup 2018, nothing can be predicted.
