GROUP PREVIEW

There is plenty of star power in Group B, highlighted by Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo, who you've probably heard of. If you haven't, only know that he's arguably the best player in the world. Ronaldo just led Real Madrid to their third consecutive Champions League trophy, which came after he won the Ballon d'Or (FIFA's player of the year award) in both of the last two seasons, as well as in 2014, 2013 and 2008 (he was runner up to Lionel Messi in 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2015). Oh, and Portugal won the 2016 UEFA European Championship, though it's worth noting that despite having Ronaldo lead the attack, Portugal were actually a pretty defensive team, scoring multiple goals just once in the knockout phase, and twice overall in the tournament. They've been better in World Cup qualifying and their subsequent friendlies, as some younger attackers have become larger contributors, but the rest of the group will put those offensive players to the test.
