Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted his dream World Cup final for him would be Portugal against Brazil.

The 37-year-old, who has been the subject of controversy in recent days, is set to be a key member of the Portugal squad, which has been tipped to advance to the knockout stages despite their tough Group opponents.

The Seleção have been placed in Group H along with the likes of Uruguay, Ghana and Son Heung Min’s South Korea.

"I joked with Casemiro that the final will be Portugal against Brazil," the Manchester United forward said.
"The World Cup is the most difficult competition in the world. I’m dreaming of it. I know it will be tough, it will be difficult, but dreaming is free and I’m dreaming all the time."

Both Portugal and Brazil have quite potent squads, although experts argue that Tite’s side has a slightly stronger group.

Interestingly, Ronaldo’s dream of meeting Brazil in the final could be ended early as Portugal could face the Brazilians if they finish second in their Group, while Neymar and his wads finish their Group as winners.

Brazil is in Group G along with Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon.

Argentina players for Lo Celso

Sports Brief also reported on Argentina's players' brilliant gesture towards one of their own Giovanni Lo Celso.

Lo Celso, who plays for Villarreal in the Spanish topflight, sustained a muscle tear during his side's La Liga clash against Athletic Bilbao in October.

He was expected to return from his injury layoff before the World Cup, however, he had to undergo surgery, extending his recovery time and invariably ruling him out of the Mundial.
