Portugal Has Significant Edge To Beat Iceland on TuesdayPublished on June 14th, 2016 11:26 am EST
Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the world's very best football players, will be leading Portugal into their match against Iceland later today.
The Portuguese side will be leaning heavily on Ronaldo this tournament, though players like Eder and Nani will also be looked upon to contribute as well.
