Portugal take on Ghana on Thursday 26th June, 2014, with kickoff at 17:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BBCi.

Portugal and Ghana both need to win if they are to ask any questions of the teams ahead in the table, and for Cristiano Ronaldo emotional devastation probably awaits if he can’t produce the quality he demands of his tired body. Pepe is back after another suspension but are few options up front for the Europeans and this won’t be an easy match for them.

Ghana have technically an even better chance than Portugal, with a superior goal difference, but even so they could be undone be events elsewhere, and will struggle to win on their current form.
