The Portuguese squad, one of the competition's favorites, is in group H and will make its debut on Thursday. Craque Cristiano Ronaldo will compete in his fifth and maybe final World Cup. The highest achievement for "Equipa das Quinas" was third place in England in 1966.

The wait is finally over. Portugal makes their FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 debut against Ghana on Thursday, November 24th, at 16:00 (Lisbon time) at stadium 974. It will be the Portuguese's sixth World Cup appearance. The finest performances were third place in England in 1966 and fourth position in Germany four decades later, in 2006.

"Equipa das Quinas," champion of Euro 2016 and the inaugural League of Nations, enters in the event as one of the favorites in 2019. Portugal is one of the countries that has emerged as a major player in international football in the twenty-first century. Not only because of its main reference, Cristiano Ronaldo, but also because of its creative coaching school, which formed Abel Ferreira, Nuno Esprito Santo, and Rben Amorim, for example, and because of its training categories, which are well remembered for the training methodology and the numerous talents.

On the other side, Ghana will be playing in its fourth Cup. A four-time African Cup of Nations winner, a bronze medal at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games, and four young World Cup runners-up, two in the under-20 and under-17 divisions. Hearts of Oak is a remarkable talent trainer and the holder of multiple international cups among the clubs.

Ghana's finest Cup performance was in 2010, when they reached the quarterfinals in South Africa. They were ousted in the first round of the 2014 competition in Brazil.

Ghana vs Portugal World Cup history

Portugal and Ghana have already met at a World Cup, on June 26, 2014, in Brasilia, for both teams' last game in Group G. It also served as a goodbye to the two teams from that World Cup.

Portugal triumphed 2-1 on that occasion. Boye's own goal in the 31st minute gave the Europeans the lead. At 21 minutes of the second half, Asamoah Gyan equalized with a header. At 35 minutes, Cristiano Ronaldo capitalized on the goalkeeper's rebound to seal the game.
