Ronaldo joins up with Portugal squad ahead of 2018 FIFA World Cup

Mohamed Salah, the highest valued African, jumped to fifth place with a value of €171.3 million (R2.52 billion).

Salah was included in Egypt's 23-man squad but he's now in a race to be fit for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Currently Ronaldo is preparing for the World Cup in Russian Federation with Portugal, with the Seleção das Quinas' final friendly before the World Cup against Algeria on Thursday.

Barcelona star Lionel Messi is the big lie of football, according to former Real Madrid goalkeeper Francisco Buyo.

Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly suspicious of Real Madrid's pursuit of Neymar and is bothered by the fact the club appear willing to splash €350 million (£306 million) on the Paris Saint-Germain star. But we also know what Neymar can bring.

Following Real Madrid's Champions League triumph over Liverpool last month, Los Blancos' talisman Cristiano Ronaldo opened the door to a mountain of transfer speculation when he revealed he was yet to make a decision on his future. Poland are also very heavily reliant on their superstar, Robert Lewandowski. Overall, he hit 45 goals in 54 games for Barcelona in the 2016-17 season, a scoring rate less than that of Ronaldo. Lewandowski may also have difficulties scoring in Russian Federation without his world class Bayern Munich teammates to count on.

But which clubs will be represented most at the 2018 World Cup?

If they top their group, they'll play either Australia or Denmark in the last 16. No country will supply as many coaches in next month's FIFA World Cup .

Salah is now facing a race against time to be fit for the World Cup with Egypt as he looks to help them enjoy a successful tournament.

"The encounter between the captain of the national soccer team and the two children" was a "moment full of emotion and happiness", the organization said. "Age-wise you have a couple of years advantage on me".

So, there can be no doubt that Ronaldo and Co. will be looking to settle for nothing less than a title in Russian Federation, but considering they are not the favourites, it will be a tough ask.

"But now I want to do something in this World Cup".

And the Brazilian playmaker is tipping the likes of Salah and Neymar to step up at this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

While the winners of the Champions League the last three seasons took the time to think.
