In his brief interview with reporters at the airport, Coentrao remained confident in his side and is certain that Cristiano Ronaldo will have a great performance against the US.

“I think my teammates will bring us joy and Cristiano will have his day against the United States.

“Of course, after a 4-0 loss, things are more complicated, but the atmosphere within the camp is still great and on Sunday, we shall overcome.”

Coentrao went on to add that “Cristiano is the best player in the world,” and dismissed rumours that the Ballon d’Or was still unfit.

Portugal face the United States on Sunday, before facing Ghana later on to round of their group.
