Follow along for live updates and highlights of goals and key plays as Portugal plays Morocco in the World Cup group stage.

What does Cristiano Ronaldo have in store next?

After a heroic hat trick to salvage Portugal’s 3-3 draw vs. Spain, Ronaldo leads his nation against Morocco in the teams’ second match of Group B play at the 2018 World Cup on Wednesday.

Both sides are looking up at Iran in the group table, something that Morocco is responsible for following Aziz Bouhaddouz’s 95th-minute own goal in the opener. Morocco had its chances against Iran but couldn’t convert, and another wasteful match against a side as talented as Portugal’s could spell doom for Herve Renard’s African side.
