[World Cup] Key Player Review: Portugal – Cristiano Ronaldo

Sometimes, the key player is simply the best player.

Ronaldo has grown accustomed to having to compensate for Portugal’s lack of a prolific striker, and since the last World Cup and the international retirement of Deco, he’s been playing in a team without a classic No. 10, too.

But now he’s also playing in a side where the winger on the opposite flank, Nani, has underperformed over the past couple of seasons. Therefore, this is truly a one-man attack.

As Ronaldo showed in the play-off against Sweden, where he scored all four goals in a 4-2 aggregate win, he’s more than capable of leading his side to victory.
