Ahead of Portugal vs Ghana Match, Cristiano Ronaldo took to social media to post a message.
In that post, Cristiano Ronaldo insisted there are no ‘impossibles’ as Portugal aims to lift the coveted World Cup trophy for the first time in the history of the competition.
“We’re about to start our campaign in the biggest competition in the world. An adventure that we desire is long and full of successes, in order to raise the name and flag of our country very high. We want to fill all Portuguese with pride and joy. There are no impossibilities,” Cristiano Ronaldo’s post read.
Portugal are in Group H at the 2022 World Cup. Alongside Portugal in Group H are South Korea, Ghana, and South American giants Uruguay. Portugal are expected to seal their place in the round-of-16 from the group.

Cristiano Ronaldo has won almost everything there is to win in football, but the biggest title of all has eluded the Portuguese superstar so far. He will be aiming to clinch the World Cup title with Portugal at Qatar 2022.
Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo heads into the 2022 World Cup as a free agent. He became a free agent after he and Manchester United terminated his contract by mutual agreement.
