Cristiano Ronaldo's more than likely final World Cup campaign will begin with Portugal taking on Ghana.
The World Cup is one of few trophies Ronaldo is yet to lift and he'll be desperate to inspire his country to such a success before he retires.
The World Cup game between Portugal and Ghana will be played at Stadium 974 and kicks off at 19:00 local time in Qatar (11:00 EST US time and 16:00 UK time).
Super Turtle picks Portugal
The Super Turtle ate the food on the left which represents Portugal.
Earlier he predicted a win for big teams such as England, Spain, Germany and France. This time he continues to support another big team - Portugal.
Aside from their fourth-place finish in 2006, Portugal have never advanced past the Round of 16 at a FIFA World Cup. They have three group stage exits and two Round of 16 defeats.

Portugal 2-1 Ghana
This has all the makings of a sticky opening match for Portugal, with Ghana proving a tough nut to crack defensively in recent matches and possessing plenty of youthful talent in the final third.
The Selecao faithful should not expect their side to stroll to victory in Doha, but with so many talented attacking options at their disposal, we still have faith in Portugal to grind out a narrow win and get off to the perfect start.

Portugal vs Ghana: Team News
Portugal are missing three players from the World Cup squad due to injury, but none bigger than Liverpool forward Diogo Jota who was in good form before succumbing to a serious hamstring injury in early October. They are also without Wolves winger Pedro Neto (ankle) and Leicester City defender Ricardo Pereira (Achilles).
Stade Rennes winger Kamaldeen Sulemana was a question mark coming into the tournament after missing time with an ankle injury, but since being named in the Ghana squad it's been all quiet, indicating that he's likely to play. The Black Stars did lose goalkeeper Joe Wollacott, however, after he cruelly sustained a finger injury in a pre-World Cup friendly.

Portugal vs Ghana: Players to Watch
Portugal: Cristiano Ronaldo
Ronaldo loves silencing his critics, and what better stage to do it? The 37-year-old is looking to become the first player to score at five different World Cup finals.
All of Ronaldo’s seven goals in the tournament have come in the group stage. He has scored the most goals of any player in the competition who is yet to find the net in the knockout stages (six such appearances without a goal).
Ghana: Mohammed Kudus

Kudus revealed earlier this week that he came close to joining Everton in August, but if the 22-year-old carries his club form into the World Cup, he might well be the subject of interest from bigger teams in January.
He has scored 10 goals for Ajax this term, with four of those coming in the Champions League, from six appearances.
With Williams ahead of him and Partey behind, Kudus could be one to watch in Qatar.
