Cristiano Ronaldo sends message to Liverpool FC star Mo Salah

The Portuguese believes the Liverpool forward can break his and Lionel Messi's grip on the annual prize following his form this season

The Portuguese believes the Liverpool forward can break his and Lionel Messi's grip on the annual prize following his form this season

Ronaldo, along with Lionel Messi, Neymar Jr, and others is one of the star attractions of the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2018.

Salah enjoyed a stunning debut season at Anfield, scooping the Premier League Golden Boot en route to netting 44 goals in all competitions. Making sure he's happy and willing to stay at Real Madrid is sure to be one of the first things on Lopetegui's to-do list when he takes on his new job.

Portugal, who arrived in Russian Federation on Saturday, will be based in the town of Ramenskoe, outside Moscow, during the World Cup.

Four years later, an injury-riddled build up to the tournament saw Portugal struggle mightily and fail to qualify from their group, with Ronaldo managing one goal.

"I hope his injury in the final in Kiev doesn't keep him out", he added.

Egypt will take on Uruguay in their first game of the World Cup on Friday where Salah could face Liverpool FC legend Luis Suarez.

The 33-year-old admits a tough Group B opener against Spain on June 15 is not ideal, but he remains confident the European champions will reach the knockout rounds.

Regarding their opposing teams they will be playing against, the only team that I can see putting their collective team players skills to the test in Portugal, and it would appear Spain do have a lot to fear from the Portugal team, who could be the team to beat them.

Ronaldo is now with the Portugal squad as he aims to help his country win a first-ever World Cup.
