Finally, Ronaldo spoke about the favourites for the World Cup.

Having predicted Portugal/ Brazil and Argentina/ Germany semi-finals, Mourinho selects Messrs Messi and Ronaldo to meet in the Final at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on the 15th July.

Portugal's forward Cristiano Ronaldo (C) and teammates disembark from a plane at the Zhukovsky airport, about 40 kilometres southeast of Moscow city centre, on June 9, 2018, as the Portugal's national football team arrives ahead of the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup.

He leaves the ultimate result to the viewers' imaginations.

Lopetegui has today been sacked as the Spain manager just a day before the World Cup after taking the Real Madrid job.

Manchester United have been regularly linked with a move to sign Ronaldo over the past few seasons, although the Portuguese forward has used the Red Devils as a bargaining chip for a new deal at Real Madrid.

The year prior to that comment, he voted for Messi to win the Ballon d'Or over Ronaldo. "The objective is to fight for a World Cup".

Ronaldo is a player who needs to know that his peers consider him to be the best.

"With his incredible attitude, with his incredible winning mentality, Cristiano Ronaldo is a unique player", Ronaldo is quoted as telling Bild by Spanish newspaper Marca.

"But I admit that Lionel Messi brings even more magic to football".

However, Ronaldo is a huge fan of his namesake and believes he's improved immeasurably as a player since leaving Manchester United for Real Madrid nine years ago. "Time will tell what position history has reserved for him". Do you prefer the great dribbler, creator and goalscorer extraordinaire, Lionel Messi, or the relentless, physical specimen and goalscoring phenomenon that is Cristiano Ronaldo?
