The 2018 World Cup is in full swing and all of the matches have been live on talkSPORT.Today, Wednesday, there are another three games, the first of which sees Portugal take on Morocco from Moscow. 4 The Luzhniki Stadium will host Portugal v Morocco Key players:Portugal: After the hat-trick against Spain, no-one but Cristiano Ronaldo could be named Portugal’s key player. Santos’ cautious approach means Ronaldo must take on a majority of Selecao’s attacking play, and goals will be hard to come by if he is not playing. He netted 15 times in qualifying, almost 50 per cent of Portugal’s entire goal haul, but he does spread them around; he found the net in seven of the nine games in which he played. 4 Portugal striker Andre Silva talks to the press ahead of their match with Morocco. 4 Team news:There are no injury worries for Portugal following their opening encounter but Bruno Alves may come in for Jose Fonte, while Bruno Fernandes could also miss out after a poor match against Spain.Meanwhile, Morocco will be without concussed star Nordin Amrabat, while Nabil Dirar remains absent with a prior injury,What the players are saying:Andre Silva (Portugal): “I consider Portugal stronger than Morocco, but the game will not be easy. Morocco has merit.” Morocco: Netherlands-born Hakim Ziyech caused a stir when he declared he would represent Morocco despite playing for the Dutch at every youth level from Under-19 up. The playmaker made the decision in 2015, and he has since won 14 caps and scored an impressive eight goals in that time frame. The 25-year-old must make a bigger impact than he did against Iran if he intends to resurrect his country’s campaign.Predicted line-ups:Portugal: Rui Patricio, Pepe, Raphael, Fonte, Cedric; Moutinho, Bernardo, William, B. Fernandes; Ronaldo, GuedesMorocco: Mohamedi, Hakimi, Benatia, Saiss, Boussoufa, Ziyech, El Ahmadi, Harit, Nordin Amrabat, El Kaabi, Belhanda 4 There’s no other choice but Ronaldo Where can I stream Portugal v Morocco?Portugal v Morocco is live to stream on talkSPORT.com, or you can listen on 1089 or 1053 AM, DAB radio or through the talkSPORT mobile app.
