Cristiano Ronaldo - and the rest of the Portugal team - take on Iran on Monday night

A fascinating clash in Group B at the World Cup as Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal take on the dogged Iran on Monday night at 22:00 UAE time.

Portugal currently lead the group on 4 points with Spain but Team Melli sit just one point back after their opening 1-0 victory over Morocco.

Depending on the other result in the group – when Spain meet Morocco – Iran may need a victory to take them into the knockout stages.

Will this encourage Iran coach Carlos Queiroz to throw away his usual caution and go all out for the win?
