    Portugal vs Ghana

    This will be the first ever meeting between Portugal and Ghana.

    Portugal’s World Cup record against African sides is balanced with one win (v Angola in 2006), one draw (v Ivory Coast in 2010) and one defeat (v Morocco in 1986).

    Portugal have won only one of their last nine World Cup games (D4 L4).

    Asamoah Gyan has equalled Roger Milla’s record for most World Cup goals by an African player – they both have five.

    Portugal have failed to score in six of their last nine World Cup matches.

    Cristiano Ronaldo has scored just two World Cup goals despite attempting 62 shots (including blocked).

    Nani’s goal against USA was the first scored by Portugal in the World Cup in 276 minutes.

    Portugal recorded a pass accuracy of 88.08% against USA; their best rate in a World Cup match from 1966 onwards.

    Ghana are without a World Cup clean sheet in six matches.

    Ghana have failed to win any of their last four World Cup group games (D2 L2).
