Fernandes fully focused on Ghana game

On the subject of Ronaldo, Fernandes was clear that nothing will change for him, when it comes to representing Portugal.

“I don’t feel uncomfortable,” he added. “I don’t have to pick a side. It’s a privilege to play with Cristiano for the national team. It was a dream come true to be playing with Cristiano at the club, but nothing lasts forever.

“And now Cristiano has taken a decision for his life and we have to respect his decision as players. We know what the World Cup means to Cristiano Ronaldo and I am sure his focus has always been that.”

Fernandes’s United team-mate Diogo Dalot will also hope to be in Portugal’s starting XI for the big game in Doha.
