The forward grabbed a remarkable hat-trick in the 3-3 draw against Spain on Friday, cementing his status as the ultimate big-game player.

Portugal will start the fixture as favorites after their impressive display in their 3-3 opening draw against Spain - while Morocco succumbed to a surprise defeat to Iran.

"I hope that Cristiano will have just as good a game as he did against Spain and that that is enough to win the game and collect three points".
