Jose Mourinho believes that Portugal have the capacity to win World Cup 2018 thanks to the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo, Goal reports.

 

The Real Madrid star played a large part in helping his country to Euro 2016 success in France,

although he went off injured early in the final, which Eder won in extra-time with the only goal.

“But with him, they’re one of the favourites.”

 

Looking at the favourites due to the strength of their squads, Mourinho picked out Brazil and

Spain as two of his top picks for the competition.

 

“I like the basic structure of Brazil a great deal, their tactics and mentality,” he said.

“There is a mixture between Brazilian natural talent,

All players with outstanding qualities.

 

“And then we have the traditional teams of Europe, but I believe Spain are once again a real team.

They were able to get together players with the same game philosophy,

adapted to that playing style.

 

“I would say that Spain are in better condition than any other European rivals. But let’s see…”
