Morocco vs Portugal: Goncalo Ramos vs Cristiano Ronaldo: According to a poll conducted by the Portuguese media, the vast majority of Portugal fans do not want Cristiano Ronaldo to return to Fernando Santos’ starting lineup against Morocco. Instead, supporters want Goncalo Ramos to start against Morocco in the FIFA World Cup 2022 quarterfinals on Saturday in Doha.
Ronaldo was benched during Portugal’s 6-1 win over Switzerland in the last-16 and was replaced by 21-year-old attacker Goncalo Ramos, who bagged a hat-trick in his maiden World Cup start. According to reports on Thursday, an enraged Ronaldo threatened to leave his country after being demoted from the starting lineup but was eventually talked out of making such a rash choice. The Portuguese Football Association has denied the claim.
Ramos’ hat-trick has rightfully called into question the veteran’s place in the starting lineup for the rest of the tournament. After polling the nation’s fans, Portuguese publication A Bola discovered that an astounding 93.6% of supporters want Ramos to lead the line against Morocco.The survey, which just asked for a yes or no response, does not bode well for the former Manchester United star.
According to Marca, Ronaldo refused to practise with Portugal’s replacements on Wednesday, instead opting to join the starters for a gym session. Portugal would face either France or England in the last four if they defeat Morocco in the quarter-finals on Saturday.
