Football Tips reported that Portugal needs to play as a team and not rely on Ronaldo alone World Cup Round 16 knockout is about to start, Portugal’s opponent is Uruguay. In the pre-match press conference, Portuguese coach Santos talked about Portugal’s tactical tactics, and he bluntly refused to rely on Ronaldo only.

We have one of the best players in the world (Cristiano Ronaldo). Actually, the same problem can be thrown in Uruguay because they have Suarez and Cavani, and each team has great players.”
“We have to play with a team. If we only rely on Ronaldo, then we will lose. We have to show that the overall strength is like Uruguay. It is very difficult to rely on only one player, even if you can score three goals, and you also need the support of the entire team.”
“The game with Uruguay will be a high-level match. The opponent’s front and back players are almost all playing in the mainstream league, there are players from Juventus, Inter Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona, It’s a very strong team. They have very strong players.”
“Of course, the personal factors will come to the fore after our two teams perform a high-level showdown and consumption. I hope my team can complete the task and hope that Ronaldo can play an important role.”
