Spanish football player Jorge Resurreccion " Koke" warned here today about the danger of Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo, who he will face on Friday in the Spanish's World Cup debut in Russian Federation.

What does Lopetegui think of Ronaldo?

Messi will be 35 by the time the 2022 World Cup finals in Qatar get underway; Ronaldo will be nearly 38.

He did, however, manage to win the European Championships with Portugal two years ago.

Ronaldo is 33 now, still in fantastic physical condition and the reigning Ballon d'Or victor.

Mario Hvala also claims that it takes around five to seven hours to complete, as he stencils both Messi and Ronaldo into actual hair. "He has extraordinary players and a coach which has given him a plus", he added.

He will have a chance to prove his future coach wrong at the World Cup when Spain play against Portugal in the group stage.

John Cena Lands Gig In Upcoming Jackie Chan Movie
Cena is replacing Sylvester Stallone , who was originally tapped to star alongside Chan . The makers of the film have not yet announced the release date of this untitled project.

He was just 19 then, and has gone on to become his country's leading scorer with 81 global goals.

There will be an obvious determination to improve that record in Russian Federation, with Portugal also facing Morocco and Iran in their group.

"Cristiano wins you matches and we have to take care of him, but Portugal also has great players, he is the current European champion and we have to do things well if we want to win the match", said Koke after the training of Julen Lopetegui's players.

It has recently emerged that a hairdresser in Serbia is clipping Messi into people's heads ahead of the World Cup.

At the World Cup so far, Ronaldo has managed just three goals in three tournaments: a penalty against Iran in 2006; one against North Korea in 2010, and one against Ghana in 2014.

That experience, and inside knowledge of numerous Spain players, will be crucial on Friday by the Black Sea.
