Share

Ronaldo, who is in Russian Federation as Portugal prepare for their opening match against Mexico, is said to be "outraged" after prosecutors accused the 32-year-old Real Madrid forward of defrauding the authorities of €14.8m (£12.9m).

Ronaldo will be playing his first match since being accused of defrauding Spain's tax office of 14.7 million euros ($16.5 million) in unpaid taxes. "I think that we communicate well and we have a good understanding, and that leads to these good results". "Both teams have great players, it will be a tough match".

"Ronaldo is motivated", young Portugal forward Andre Silva said.

Mexico's defense was only anxious about Ronaldo there, and that was a mistake.

Mexico boss Juan Carlos Osorio says it would be futile to create a game plan for Sunday's clash with Portugal that focuses only on stopping Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo also continued to rewrite the record books in the Champions League as he became the first man to score more than 100 goals in Europe's premier club competition with a hat-trick against Bayern Munich.

Ronaldo's recent performances have left him in a strong position to catch up with Lionel Messi with a fifth world player of the year award.

Silva, who has just moved from FC Porto to AC Milan in a transfer worth almost 40 million euros, has scored seven goals in eight games since his debut with the national team in a friendly against Gibraltar in September.
