1:44PM 44 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 More smart play by those Moroccan men on the right side. First time, the ball is hacked clear. Second time, the ball is chested back to Patricio to bring an end to the attack. "Guerreiro is making Amrabat look world class," says Martin Keown. 1:42PM 42 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Guedes probably should have done better with that chance. He had a lot of goal to aim at, but stuck it far too close to Mohamedi. 1:40PM 40 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 A big chance for Portugal to double their lead! It's come from nothing as Morocco switch off slightly and allow Guedes to latch onto a little Ronaldo dink over the top. The Portugal frontman hits the ball on the run and Mohamedi palms away, moving to his left. Benatia is then booked for a foul on Ronaldo soon after. 1:38PM 38 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 A lovely overlap sees Hakimi drive high up the pitch for Morocco, but Boutaib cannot keep hold of the ball inside the Portugal penalty area. Back they come again though and Portugal twice have to hoof the ball clear. 1:36PM 36 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 A few fouls coming in from both sides in the middle of the park. Still no yellow cards been shown. Portugal vs Morocco shots on goal 1:32PM 32 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 ... Ronaldo marks out his run-up, pulls up his shorts, puffs his cheeks... and then whacks the ball into the Morocco wall. 1:31PM 31 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Morocco are again appealing for a penalty as Fonte crashes into Boutaib inside the penalty area, but the referee isn't interested. Portugal then go straight down the other end and win a free-kick 20 yards out from goal. Step up you know who... 1:30PM 30 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Ronaldo has barely got a look for the past 15mins or so. His side just cannot retain possession. Morocco fans at Luzhniki respond to Ronaldo’s complaints by singing ‘Messi, Messi’. An old one but a good one— Sam Wallace (@SamWallaceTel) June 20, 2018 1:28PM 28 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Amrabat, playing on the right wing today (he played right-back against Iran) is tearing Guerreiro to pieces every time he gets the ball. He just about wriggles clear of the Portugal left-back, ventures into the Portugal penalty area and then tumbles over as Guerreiro fights back to apply some pressure. It looked as though both players were clinging on to their opposite man and Morocco's penalty appeals are waved away. Correct. No need for VAR to intervene. 1:25PM 25 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 A bit of an ouchy for Ronaldo prompts the Portugal star to roll around in howls, while clutching his ankle (which was caught by Benatia). A foul is given, but no card shown, and Ronaldo's recovery is swift - almost like it didn't hurt that much in the first place. 1:23PM 23 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Ziyech, who has been making quite a name for himself at Ajax this season, is causing plenty of problems and this time tries his luck from range. Nothing too troubling for Patricio, but Ziyech is an attacking player of some talent. 1:22PM 22 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Portugal are really struggling to retain possession. Morocco are pressing so high in the opposition half and Portugal are frequently pushed further and further back. Bar the goal, you have to be impressed with how the Moroccans have played so far. 1:19PM 19 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Morocco are continuing to cause all sorts of problems. Amrabat and Dirar link up smartly down the right (where all the problems are coming from), before the Morocco right-back pulls the ball back dangerously into the penalty area, but the shot under pressure flies over the bar. 1:17PM 17 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 BREAKING NEWS: Amrabat has just flung his skull cap towards the bench in disgust, revealing his gloriously shaved bonce. 1:16PM 16 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 This game is very open in these early stages. Neither side is sitting back on the ball, which is making for plenty of action. Morocco are a goal behind but not playing poorly at all. They are pressing with vigour. 1:14PM 14 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 The Moroccans are pushing hard at the moment, forcing Portugal deep inside their own half and winning another corner. It is only half-cleared before being delivered again for Da Costa to head well wide. 1:13PM 13 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 A couple of nice Ronaldo stats: 85 - Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored more international goals than any other European player in the history of football (85 goals for Portugal). Historic. #POR#MAR#PORMAR#Ronaldo#WorldCuppic.twitter.com/I3wsEJTGlQ— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) June 20, 2018 2 - Cristiano Ronaldo has become the first Portugal player since José Torres in 1966 to score a goal with his right foot, left foot and head in a single World Cup tournament. Collection. #POR#MAR#PORMAR#Ronaldo#WorldCuppic.twitter.com/liZrUSyXmq— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) June 20, 2018 1:12PM 11 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Credit to Morocco, they haven't responded too badly to going behind and Amrabat is causing problems against an ageing (actually, very much aged) Portugal defence down the right. The north African side win a corner, which finds Da Costa unmarked in the middle of the box and his header is held on the line by Patricio diving low to his right. 1:10PM 9 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Here comes Ronaldo again. Guerreiro is allowed far, far too much space to bring the ball deep inside Morocco's half. Inside it comes to Ronaldo, who attempts to let fly from the edge of the penalty area but scuffs his shot wide of the post. He's in the mood. 1:07PM 6 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 That was such poor marking and Ronaldo is just too good for that. Morocco's World Cup 2018 future is dangling by a thread. 1:05PM GOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAL And you don't even need me to tell you who scored it. The corner is whipped to the edge of the six-yard box where Ronaldo is woefully marked. The Real Madrid man flings himself powerfully at the ball and bullets a header past Mohamedi in goal to put Portugal ahead. Portugal 1 - 0 Morocco (Cristiano Ronaldo, 4 min) 1:04PM 2 mins - Portugal 0 Morocco 0 Now it is Portugal's turn to venture upfield through Bernardo Silva on the right. He wins a first corner that ends with Guerreiro seeing a shot deflected over for a second corner... 1:02PM 2 mins - Portugal 0 Morocco 0 An early foray forward sees the skull-capped Amrabat deliver a cross from the right. Portugal cannot release the pressure and the ball is worked back into the penalty area from the left where Boutaib meets it and heads over the bar. A lively start from the Moroccans. 1:00PM Kick-off Morocco in red get this match underway. Portugal are in white. Morocco must win to keep their hopes of progressing alive. 12:55PM Game time The teams are out and the anthems are being sung. Almost ready. 12:48PM Bang to the head It had been assumed that Amrabat would not feature for Morocco today after he was forced off during the match with Iran when he bashed his head against the floor and suffered a concussion. However, he has been selected and is wearing a Petr Cech-style skull cap in the warm-up. Unsurprisingly, his inclusion in the starting XI has prompted some raised eyebrows. Nordin Amrabat starts. ����#MOR team doctor - Abderrazak Hifti: "I asked him five questions and he could only answer one, I saw clear symptoms of cerebral concussion.” FIFA concussion protocol.

Morocco have tinkered a bit more after their shock defeat against Iran, making three changes to the side that started that game. Nabil Dirar and Manuel Da Costa come in, which sees Watford's Nordin Amrabat shifted further forward into a midfield role. Khalid Boutaib replaces Ayoub El Kaabi up top. 12:10PM Here are your teams The teams are in for #PORMAR! #WorldCuppic.twitter.com/73Cx1XolJV— FIFA World Cup �� (@FIFAWorldCup) June 20, 2018 12:05PM The main man Let's focus a little more on the undoubted star of today's show: CR7. I don't know what you're talking about guys, I think the Ronaldo statue looks pretty good pic.twitter.com/JIUwQBuqUY— keewa (@keewa) March 29, 2017 Dashing, isn't he? His hat-trick against Spain was phenomenal and broke or matched a number of records: He joined Uwe Seeler, Pele and Miroslav Klose as only the fourth player to score in four separate World Cup tournaments. He became the first player in history to score in eight consecutive major tournaments (World Cup, European Championships, Copa America). At 33 years and 130 days, he became the oldest hat-trick scorer in World Cup history. At an age when most players are considered either past it or on the decline, Ronaldo has shown no signs of slowing. Consider this: 2006, 2010, 2014 World Cups = 70 shots, 3 goals. 2018 World Cup = 4 shots, 3 goals. Stop him if you can. 11:35AM Ronaldo vs Morocco The meticulously marked out run-up, the ludicrous power pose, the rolled up shorts to expose those bulging thighs, the puff of the cheeks and the fiery stare. Everything about Cristiano Ronaldo's 89th-minute hat-trick goal against Spain last Friday was pure theatre. And wasn't it brilliant? A man who - love him or loathe him - lives for the biggest moments. A man who makes it All. About. Him. And then - THEN - he goes and delivers. If anyone thought Portugal were a one-man team at this World Cup, last Friday's match only reinforced such an opinion. Their 3-3 draw against Spain showcased two things about Portugal's team: Ronaldo's total brilliance and the rest of team's (including your Bernardo Silvas, your Joao Moutinhos etc) bang averageness. That draw means Portugal have emerged from their toughest match of Group B with a point and today they face a Morocco side who were stunned by Iran in their opener. The Moroccans would have come to this World Cup knowing the scale of the task facing them in a group containing Spain and Portugal. The plan: do Iran over and then see if you can get a result against one of the big boys. So much for that. The north African side dominated for much of their opening match, but paid the price for their profligacy in front of goal. Just as it looked like Iran would cling on for an admirable goalless draw, Morocco substitute Aziz Bouhaddouz stuck the ball in his own net in the 95th minute to gift the most unlikely of victories. That has left Morocco in a whole heap of bother. Herve Renard knows his side now cannot afford to lose either of their remaining two games against the two heavyweights of the group. These two sides have met once before at a World Cup and it was Morocco who came out on top in a 3-1 win. That was Portugal's only defeat against African opposition at any World Cup and the bookies have Ronaldo and chums as fairly heavy favourites to triumph today.

I don't know what you're talking about guys, I think the Ronaldo statue looks pretty good pic.twitter.com/JIUwQBuqUY— keewa (@keewa) March 29, 2017 Dashing, isn't he? His hat-trick against Spain was phenomenal and broke or matched a number of records: He joined Uwe Seeler, Pele and Miroslav Klose as only the fourth player to score in four separate World Cup tournaments. He became the first player in history to score in eight consecutive major tournaments (World Cup, European Championships, Copa America). At 33 years and 130 days, he became the oldest hat-trick scorer in World Cup history. At an age when most players are considered either past it or on the decline, Ronaldo has shown no signs of slowing. Consider this: 2006, 2010, 2014 World Cups = 70 shots, 3 goals. 2018 World Cup = 4 shots, 3 goals. Stop him if you can. 11:35AM Ronaldo vs Morocco The meticulously marked out run-up, the ludicrous power pose, the rolled up shorts to expose those bulging thighs, the puff of the cheeks and the fiery stare. Everything about Cristiano Ronaldo's 89th-minute hat-trick goal against Spain last Friday was pure theatre. And wasn't it brilliant? A man who - love him or loathe him - lives for the biggest moments. A man who makes it All. About. Him. And then - THEN - he goes and delivers. If anyone thought Portugal were a one-man team at this World Cup, last Friday's match only reinforced such an opinion. Their 3-3 draw against Spain showcased two things about Portugal's team: Ronaldo's total brilliance and the rest of team's (including your Bernardo Silvas, your Joao Moutinhos etc) bang averageness. That draw means Portugal have emerged from their toughest match of Group B with a point and today they face a Morocco side who were stunned by Iran in their opener. The Moroccans would have come to this World Cup knowing the scale of the task facing them in a group containing Spain and Portugal. The plan: do Iran over and then see if you can get a result against one of the big boys. So much for that. The north African side dominated for much of their opening match, but paid the price for their profligacy in front of goal. Just as it looked like Iran would cling on for an admirable goalless draw, Morocco substitute Aziz Bouhaddouz stuck the ball in his own net in the 95th minute to gift the most unlikely of victories. That has left Morocco in a whole heap of bother. Herve Renard knows his side now cannot afford to lose either of their remaining two games against the two heavyweights of the group. These two sides have met once before at a World Cup and it was Morocco who came out on top in a 3-1 win. That was Portugal's only defeat against African opposition at any World Cup and the bookies have Ronaldo and chums as fairly heavy favourites to triumph today.
Portugal vs Morocco, World Cup 2018 - live score and latest updates as Cristiano Ronaldo scores again
1:44PM 44 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 More smart play by those Moroccan men on the right side. First time, the ball is hacked clear. Second time, the ball is chested back to Patricio to bring an end to the attack. "Guerreiro is making Amrabat look world class," says Martin Keown. 1:42PM 42 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Guedes probably should have done better with that chance. He had a lot of goal to aim at, but stuck it far too close to Mohamedi. 1:40PM 40 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 A big chance for Portugal to double their lead! It's come from nothing as Morocco switch off slightly and allow Guedes to latch onto a little Ronaldo dink over the top. The Portugal frontman hits the ball on the run and Mohamedi palms away, moving to his left. Benatia is then booked for a foul on Ronaldo soon after. 1:38PM 38 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 A lovely overlap sees Hakimi drive high up the pitch for Morocco, but Boutaib cannot keep hold of the ball inside the Portugal penalty area. Back they come again though and Portugal twice have to hoof the ball clear. 1:36PM 36 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 A few fouls coming in from both sides in the middle of the park. Still no yellow cards been shown. Portugal vs Morocco shots on goal 1:32PM 32 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 ... Ronaldo marks out his run-up, pulls up his shorts, puffs his cheeks... and then whacks the ball into the Morocco wall. 1:31PM 31 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Morocco are again appealing for a penalty as Fonte crashes into Boutaib inside the penalty area, but the referee isn't interested. Portugal then go straight down the other end and win a free-kick 20 yards out from goal. Step up you know who... 1:30PM 30 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Ronaldo has barely got a look for the past 15mins or so. His side just cannot retain possession. Morocco fans at Luzhniki respond to Ronaldo’s complaints by singing ‘Messi, Messi’. An old one but a good one— Sam Wallace (@SamWallaceTel) June 20, 2018 1:28PM 28 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Amrabat, playing on the right wing today (he played right-back against Iran) is tearing Guerreiro to pieces every time he gets the ball. He just about wriggles clear of the Portugal left-back, ventures into the Portugal penalty area and then tumbles over as Guerreiro fights back to apply some pressure. It looked as though both players were clinging on to their opposite man and Morocco's penalty appeals are waved away. Correct. No need for VAR to intervene. 1:25PM 25 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 A bit of an ouchy for Ronaldo prompts the Portugal star to roll around in howls, while clutching his ankle (which was caught by Benatia). A foul is given, but no card shown, and Ronaldo's recovery is swift - almost like it didn't hurt that much in the first place. 1:23PM 23 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Ziyech, who has been making quite a name for himself at Ajax this season, is causing plenty of problems and this time tries his luck from range. Nothing too troubling for Patricio, but Ziyech is an attacking player of some talent. 1:22PM 22 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Portugal are really struggling to retain possession. Morocco are pressing so high in the opposition half and Portugal are frequently pushed further and further back. Bar the goal, you have to be impressed with how the Moroccans have played so far. 1:19PM 19 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Morocco are continuing to cause all sorts of problems. Amrabat and Dirar link up smartly down the right (where all the problems are coming from), before the Morocco right-back pulls the ball back dangerously into the penalty area, but the shot under pressure flies over the bar. 1:17PM 17 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 BREAKING NEWS: Amrabat has just flung his skull cap towards the bench in disgust, revealing his gloriously shaved bonce. 1:16PM 16 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 This game is very open in these early stages. Neither side is sitting back on the ball, which is making for plenty of action. Morocco are a goal behind but not playing poorly at all. They are pressing with vigour. 1:14PM 14 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 The Moroccans are pushing hard at the moment, forcing Portugal deep inside their own half and winning another corner. It is only half-cleared before being delivered again for Da Costa to head well wide. 1:13PM 13 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 A couple of nice Ronaldo stats: 85 - Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored more international goals than any other European player in the history of football (85 goals for Portugal). Historic. #POR#MAR#PORMAR#Ronaldo#WorldCuppic.twitter.com/I3wsEJTGlQ— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) June 20, 2018 2 - Cristiano Ronaldo has become the first Portugal player since José Torres in 1966 to score a goal with his right foot, left foot and head in a single World Cup tournament. Collection. #POR#MAR#PORMAR#Ronaldo#WorldCuppic.twitter.com/liZrUSyXmq— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) June 20, 2018 1:12PM 11 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Credit to Morocco, they haven't responded too badly to going behind and Amrabat is causing problems against an ageing (actually, very much aged) Portugal defence down the right. The north African side win a corner, which finds Da Costa unmarked in the middle of the box and his header is held on the line by Patricio diving low to his right. 1:10PM 9 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Here comes Ronaldo again. Guerreiro is allowed far, far too much space to bring the ball deep inside Morocco's half. Inside it comes to Ronaldo, who attempts to let fly from the edge of the penalty area but scuffs his shot wide of the post. He's in the mood. 1:07PM 6 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 That was such poor marking and Ronaldo is just too good for that. Morocco's World Cup 2018 future is dangling by a thread. 1:05PM GOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAL And you don't even need me to tell you who scored it. The corner is whipped to the edge of the six-yard box where Ronaldo is woefully marked. The Real Madrid man flings himself powerfully at the ball and bullets a header past Mohamedi in goal to put Portugal ahead. Portugal 1 - 0 Morocco (Cristiano Ronaldo, 4 min) 1:04PM 2 mins - Portugal 0 Morocco 0 Now it is Portugal's turn to venture upfield through Bernardo Silva on the right. He wins a first corner that ends with Guerreiro seeing a shot deflected over for a second corner... 1:02PM 2 mins - Portugal 0 Morocco 0 An early foray forward sees the skull-capped Amrabat deliver a cross from the right. Portugal cannot release the pressure and the ball is worked back into the penalty area from the left where Boutaib meets it and heads over the bar. A lively start from the Moroccans. 1:00PM Kick-off Morocco in red get this match underway. Portugal are in white. Morocco must win to keep their hopes of progressing alive. 12:55PM Game time The teams are out and the anthems are being sung. Almost ready. 12:48PM Bang to the head It had been assumed that Amrabat would not feature for Morocco today after he was forced off during the match with Iran when he bashed his head against the floor and suffered a concussion. However, he has been selected and is wearing a Petr Cech-style skull cap in the warm-up. Unsurprisingly, his inclusion in the starting XI has prompted some raised eyebrows.

Morocco are pressing so high in the opposition half and Portugal are frequently pushed further and further back. Bar the goal, you have to be impressed with how the Moroccans have played so far. 1:19PM 19 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Morocco are continuing to cause all sorts of problems. Amrabat and Dirar link up smartly down the right (where all the problems are coming from), before the Morocco right-back pulls the ball back dangerously into the penalty area, but the shot under pressure flies over the bar. 1:17PM 17 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 BREAKING NEWS: Amrabat has just flung his skull cap towards the bench in disgust, revealing his gloriously shaved bonce. 1:16PM 16 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 This game is very open in these early stages. Neither side is sitting back on the ball, which is making for plenty of action. Morocco are a goal behind but not playing poorly at all. They are pressing with vigour. 1:14PM 14 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 The Moroccans are pushing hard at the moment, forcing Portugal deep inside their own half and winning another corner. It is only half-cleared before being delivered again for Da Costa to head well wide. 1:13PM 13 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 A couple of nice Ronaldo stats: 85 - Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored more international goals than any other European player in the history of football (85 goals for Portugal).

The north African side win a corner, which finds Da Costa unmarked in the middle of the box and his header is held on the line by Patricio diving low to his right. 1:10PM 9 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Here comes Ronaldo again. Guerreiro is allowed far, far too much space to bring the ball deep inside Morocco's half. Inside it comes to Ronaldo, who attempts to let fly from the edge of the penalty area but scuffs his shot wide of the post. He's in the mood. 1:07PM 6 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 That was such poor marking and Ronaldo is just too good for that. Morocco's World Cup 2018 future is dangling by a thread. 1:05PM GOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAL And you don't even need me to tell you who scored it. The corner is whipped to the edge of the six-yard box where Ronaldo is woefully marked. The Real Madrid man flings himself powerfully at the ball and bullets a header past Mohamedi in goal to put Portugal ahead. Portugal 1 - 0 Morocco (Cristiano Ronaldo, 4 min) 1:04PM 2 mins - Portugal 0 Morocco 0 Now it is Portugal's turn to venture upfield through Bernardo Silva on the right. He wins a first corner that ends with Guerreiro seeing a shot deflected over for a second corner... 1:02PM 2 mins - Portugal 0 Morocco 0 An early foray forward sees the skull-capped Amrabat deliver a cross from the right. Portugal cannot release the pressure and the ball is worked back into the penalty area from the left where Boutaib meets it and heads over the bar. A lively start from the Moroccans. 1:00PM Kick-off Morocco in red get this match underway. Portugal are in white.

I don't know what you're talking about guys, I think the Ronaldo statue looks pretty good pic.twitter.com/JIUwQBuqUY— keewa (@keewa) March 29, 2017 Dashing, isn't he? His hat-trick against Spain was phenomenal and broke or matched a number of records: He joined Uwe Seeler, Pele and Miroslav Klose as only the fourth player to score in four separate World Cup tournaments. He became the first player in history to score in eight consecutive major tournaments (World Cup, European Championships, Copa America). At 33 years and 130 days, he became the oldest hat-trick scorer in World Cup history. At an age when most players are considered either past it or on the decline, Ronaldo has shown no signs of slowing. Consider this: 2006, 2010, 2014 World Cups = 70 shots, 3 goals. 2018 World Cup = 4 shots, 3 goals. Stop him if you can. 11:35AM Ronaldo vs Morocco The meticulously marked out run-up, the ludicrous power pose, the rolled up shorts to expose those bulging thighs, the puff of the cheeks and the fiery stare. Everything about Cristiano Ronaldo's 89th-minute hat-trick goal against Spain last Friday was pure theatre. And wasn't it brilliant? A man who - love him or loathe him - lives for the biggest moments. A man who makes it All. About. Him. And then - THEN - he goes and delivers. If anyone thought Portugal were a one-man team at this World Cup, last Friday's match only reinforced such an opinion. Their 3-3 draw against Spain showcased two things about Portugal's team: Ronaldo's total brilliance and the rest of team's (including your Bernardo Silvas, your Joao Moutinhos etc) bang averageness. That draw means Portugal have emerged from their toughest match of Group B with a point and today they face a Morocco side who were stunned by Iran in their opener. The Moroccans would have come to this World Cup knowing the scale of the task facing them in a group containing Spain and Portugal. The plan: do Iran over and then see if you can get a result against one of the big boys. So much for that. The north African side dominated for much of their opening match, but paid the price for their profligacy in front of goal. Just as it looked like Iran would cling on for an admirable goalless draw, Morocco substitute Aziz Bouhaddouz stuck the ball in his own net in the 95th minute to gift the most unlikely of victories. That has left Morocco in a whole heap of bother. Herve Renard knows his side now cannot afford to lose either of their remaining two games against the two heavyweights of the group. These two sides have met once before at a World Cup and it was Morocco who came out on top in a 3-1 win. That was Portugal's only defeat against African opposition at any World Cup and the bookies have Ronaldo and chums as fairly heavy favourites to triumph today.
1:44PM 44 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 More smart play by those Moroccan men on the right side. First time, the ball is hacked clear. Second time, the ball is chested back to Patricio to bring an end to the attack. "Guerreiro is making Amrabat look world class," says Martin Keown. 1:42PM 42 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Guedes probably should have done better with that chance. He had a lot of goal to aim at, but stuck it far too close to Mohamedi. 1:40PM 40 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 A big chance for Portugal to double their lead! It's come from nothing as Morocco switch off slightly and allow Guedes to latch onto a little Ronaldo dink over the top. The Portugal frontman hits the ball on the run and Mohamedi palms away, moving to his left. Benatia is then booked for a foul on Ronaldo soon after. 1:38PM 38 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 A lovely overlap sees Hakimi drive high up the pitch for Morocco, but Boutaib cannot keep hold of the ball inside the Portugal penalty area. Back they come again though and Portugal twice have to hoof the ball clear. 1:36PM 36 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 A few fouls coming in from both sides in the middle of the park. Still no yellow cards been shown. Portugal vs Morocco shots on goal 1:32PM 32 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 ... Ronaldo marks out his run-up, pulls up his shorts, puffs his cheeks... and then whacks the ball into the Morocco wall. 1:31PM 31 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Morocco are again appealing for a penalty as Fonte crashes into Boutaib inside the penalty area, but the referee isn't interested. Portugal then go straight down the other end and win a free-kick 20 yards out from goal. Step up you know who... 1:30PM 30 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Ronaldo has barely got a look for the past 15mins or so. His side just cannot retain possession. Morocco fans at Luzhniki respond to Ronaldo’s complaints by singing ‘Messi, Messi’. An old one but a good one— Sam Wallace (@SamWallaceTel) June 20, 2018 1:28PM 28 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Amrabat, playing on the right wing today (he played right-back against Iran) is tearing Guerreiro to pieces every time he gets the ball. He just about wriggles clear of the Portugal left-back, ventures into the Portugal penalty area and then tumbles over as Guerreiro fights back to apply some pressure. It looked as though both players were clinging on to their opposite man and Morocco's penalty appeals are waved away. Correct. No need for VAR to intervene. 1:25PM 25 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 A bit of an ouchy for Ronaldo prompts the Portugal star to roll around in howls, while clutching his ankle (which was caught by Benatia). A foul is given, but no card shown, and Ronaldo's recovery is swift - almost like it didn't hurt that much in the first place. 1:23PM 23 mins - Portugal 1 Morocco 0 Ziyech, who has been making quite a name for himself at Ajax this season, is causing plenty of problems and this time tries his luck from range.

The Moroccans would have come to this World Cup knowing the scale of the task facing them in a group containing Spain and Portugal. The plan: do Iran over and then see if you can get a result against one of the big boys. So much for that. The north African side dominated for much of their opening match, but paid the price for their profligacy in front of goal. Just as it looked like Iran would cling on for an admirable goalless draw, Morocco substitute Aziz Bouhaddouz stuck the ball in his own net in the 95th minute to gift the most unlikely of victories. That has left Morocco in a whole heap of bother. Herve Renard knows his side now cannot afford to lose either of their remaining two games against the two heavyweights of the group. These two sides have met once before at a World Cup and it was Morocco who came out on top in a 3-1 win. That was Portugal's only defeat against African opposition at any World Cup and the bookies have Ronaldo and chums as fairly heavy favourites to triumph today.

Steven Gerrard will launch his competitive managerial career at home when his Ranger side – currently in the process of a major overhaul – take on FK Shkupi of Macedonia in the Europa League at Ibrox on July 12. Shkupi, who are based in Skopje, finished fourth in the Macedonian First Division and are competing in Europe for the first time. On the face of it, they should not present a significant obstacle to Gerrard and his players but the former Liverpool and England captain has only to look back a year to be warned that hazards exist even at this embryonic stage of the competition. Last summer Rangers suffered the worst European result in their history when, under Pedro Caixinha, they were beaten by Progres Niederkorn, of Luxembourg despite winning 1-0 in the first leg at Ibrox. Although the allure of watching the first appearance of Gerrard’s Rangers will attract a crowd of close to the Ibrox capacity of 50,817, far fewer travelling supporters will be able to travel to the second leg in Macedonia on July 19. Shkupi’s Cair Stadium can accommodate just 6,000 spectators, of whom only 2,000 can be seated. Gerrard and his squad are in Spain for pre-season training and the manager has declared that his priority is to see an improvement in fitness levels. Meanwhile, Neil Lennon’s Hibernian were also in the draw for the first qualifying round of the Europa League and will begin by meeting NSI Runavik of the Faroe Islands at Easter Road on July 12, before heading north for the return on July 19. Runavik have made 11 appearances in European competition and have yet to record an aggregate win although, like Shkupi, the islanders can draw inspiration from Progres Niederkorn, who were in the same situation until they accounted for Rangers.

West Ham United are increasingly confident of signing Lazio winger Felipe Anderson for a club-record fee which could be as high as £35 million. Talks have progressed between West Ham and Anderson’s representatives with one source close to the deal saying there is now a “big chance” that it will be completed. It comes after West Ham announced their third signing after appointing Manuel Pellegrini as their new manager with the confirmation that goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has been acquired from relegated Swansea City for £7m on a three-year contract. Having signed the 33 year-old, who is at the World Cup with Poland, West Ham are also continuing to hold talks for another Swansea player, Alfie Mawson. West Ham had been searching for a replacement for Joe Hart following the end of his loan spell from Premier League champions Manchester City and targeted Fabianski, who is Swansea’s current player of the year. "Lukasz is an experienced and established Premier League goalkeeper, with great quality that he has shown at both domestic and international level," said West Ham’s new director of football Mario Husillos. "He fits perfectly the mould of the modern goalkeeper, with excellent agility, presence and distribution, and will bring strong competition to the position." Lukasz Fabianski has signed for West Ham Credit: getty images West Ham also have Adrian who played much of last season after Hart was dropped. In a sign of their ambition - and wanting to get deals done quickly - West Ham have also completed the signing of defender Issa Diop from Toulouse for £22m on a five-year deal. The 21 year-old is a France Under-21 international and was club captain at his hometown club. West Ham have also brought in Ryan Fredericks from newly-promoted Fulham, on a four-year contract, after he became a free agent. Issa Diop has his West Ham medical Credit: getty images However, it will be the signing of Anderson which will excite the West Ham fans. The 25-year-old right-winger scored four goals and provided seven assists in 21 appearances in Serie A last season and also scored three times in the Italian club’s Europa League campaign. Anderson has been capped by Brazil and was signed from the Brazilian club Santos by Lazio for £6.75m in 2015 and has been scouted by a number of leading clubs, including those in the Premier League.

The award for the top goalscorer at this year's World Cup is set to be one of the most hotly contested in years with an array of attacking talent descending on Russia this summer. Colombia midfielder James Rodriguez is the current holder of the coveted golden boot but the chances of him retaining the award look slim with Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Kane all coming into the tournament on the back of impressive domestic seasons in front of goal. Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the leading contenders for the award before a ball was kicked, stole a march on his rivals with a sensational hat-trick in Portugal's 3-3 draw with Spain. The Real Madrid striker netted collected his 51st match ball after his 89th-minute free-kick snatched a point for his country after it looked as though Spain had the game wrapped up. Diego Costa finds himself a goal behind Ronaldo in the early running for the award after scoring a brace in the same game. Russia's Denis Cheryshev is level with Costa after scoring to sublime goals in Russia's 5-0 thrashing of Saudi Arabia on the opening day of the tournament.
