Former Ghana captain Stephen Appiah believes Portugal is a â€˜one man teamâ€™ with their talismanic captain Cristiano Ronaldo as the main focus.
The Black Stars will come up against the 2006 World Cup semi finalists in the final group game at Juneâ€™s World Cup in Brazil.
Some however believe the Portuguese team is heavily reliant on Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo and thus lack the attribute of an all-round team of which Ghana can exploit at the World Cup.
Ronaldo, the reigning best player in the world has hit a rich vein of form for both club and country with some few months to the commencement of the tournament in Brazil.
He is largely credited for Portugalâ€™s qualification to the World Cup after an excellent individual display in the playoffs to ditch Sweden.
But ex Ghana captain Stephen Appiah agrees to the tag of a â€˜one-man-teamâ€™ for coach Paulo Bentoâ€™s side despite the presence of other acclaimed world class players in Joao Moutinho, Raul Meireles, Pepe, Nani and Hugo Almeida.
â€œHe [Cristiano Ronaldo] always makes the difference in the team,â€ Appiah told GHANAsoccernet.com.
â€œWe saw what he did against Sweden [in the World Cup playoffs] so you can judge for yourself.â€
Ghana is making a third appearance at the World Cup finals this term and will face USA and Germany before taking on Portugal in the final Group G game.
