Cristiano Ronaldo and the rest of the Portugal World Cup squad trained on Sunday ahead of their last Group B clash with Iran.

Portugal have muddled through their opening two matches in Russia thanks to the brilliance of Ronaldo, whose four goals have helped them collect four points, after a 3-3 draw against Iberian rivals Spain and an edgy 1-0 win over Morocco.

Against Spain, Portugal had only 39 per cent possession, yet managed a draw thanks to Ronaldo's hat-trick, while against Morocco, they struck early and then clung on for dear life at the end.

That has left them needing one point on Monday against Iran, a team led by former Portugal manager Carlos Queiroz, to secure their spot in the last 16.
