Two days after Cristiano Ronaldo and his club team, Manchester United, agreed to part ways, he and Portugal square off against Ghana on Thursday in the teams' Group H opener at the 2022 World Cup at Stadium 974 in Doha, Qatar. Prior to the World Cup, the 37-year-old Ronaldo accused United of betrayal and took shots at manager Erik ten Hag and the club's management in an interview with Piers Morgan. United moved quickly to terminate his contract. On Thursday Ronaldo and Portugal face a Ghana team that returns to the World Cup after failing to qualify for Russia 2018.
