But Ronaldo admitted that Salah's stunning 44-goal season with the Liverpool marks him out as a huge threat.

Many believe FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi needs to win a FIFA World Cup to be considered as one of football's greats, but a player who will be competing at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation feels the Argentine already holds that status. Making sure he's happy and willing to stay at Real Madrid is sure to be one of the first things on Lopetegui's to-do list when he takes on his new job.

"Mo Salah has been one of the revelations of the year", Ronaldo said.

Portugal, who arrived in Russian Federation on Saturday, will be based in the town of Ramenskoe, outside Moscow, during the World Cup.

Ahead of the World Cup in Russian Federation, the Spanish coach has talked about Messi on various occasions and considers him a player who practically has no equal.


Cristiano Ronaldo's legacy can not be debated as he has cemented himself as one of the best players to ever grace the game.

The Real Madrid icon, five-time Champions League victor, and Twitter superstar (73 million followers and counting) is also 33-years-old, meaning this World Cup could be his last.

'I hope his injury in the final in Kiev doesn't keep him out, ' the 33-year-old added. "But I believe both Spain and Portugal will reach the next round".

Ronaldo leads his country against Spain in a mouthwatering first clash of the tournament for Portugal on Friday.
