What Pepe did during Portugal's win vs Morocco was disgraceful

All rights reserved

With Spain and Portugal tying, Iran leads Group B after beating Morocco 1-0 in their opener.

By scoring a hat-trick in his opening game, Ronaldo equalled his World Cup tally from each of the previous three tournaments, having scored only once at the 2006, 2010 and 2014 World Cups. A short pass to Joao Moutinho and he curled it in to the six-yard area as Ronaldo raced from behind to dive and hit a sublime header past the Moroccan keeper to send Portugal 1-0 ahead in the game.

A Cristiano Ronaldo header was the difference between the two sides at halftime, Ronaldo met a corner with a fearless diving header to put Portugal ahead early in the half.

When they managed to stop appealing and resumed play, Morocco looked unsafe and were the dominant side in the second half.

Him again. Cristiano Ronaldo broke the ice four minutes into the game, with the sort of diving header perilously inches from Karim El Ahmadi's boot that screamed: BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

But Portugal's supremacy was confined to the scoresheet because for possession, passes made and attempts on goal Morocco were the superior team.

Good afternoon and a warm welcome to our coverage of the Group B game between Morocco and Portugal.

"We have to look at this and we have to talk about it", Portugal coach Santos said.

Ronaldo, 33, became the oldest scorer of a hat-trick in World Cup history and just the fourth player to find the back of the net at four different editions of the tournament.

The 2016 European Champions served up arguably the best game of the group stages with their dramatic 3-3 draw with Spain and will be hoping that Cristiano Ronaldo can inspire them to victory against the north African side.

Ronaldo has struck 23 times in his past 18 matches for his country, with 15 of those goals coming in World Cup qualification.

Morocco failed to convert their chances and are pointless and can not progress to the second round.

And the Real Madrid man is now only behind Iran legend Ali Daei (109 goals) in the all-time rankings.

Morocco, on the other hand, kicked off their first World Cup campaign in two decades with a heartbreaking last-minute defeat to Iran.

But for Portugal this brings up a vital win as they take home all the points.
