Cristiano Ronaldo has been named to the World Cup group stage's worst team

With the exception of a penalty against Ghana, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner appeared anonymous in all three of Portugal’s Group H games.

While Portugal’s last five goals were scored by players other than Ronaldo, he was substituted in each of the three games.

The future of the national team is seen in Joao Felix and Rafel Leao, both of whom scored against Ghana.

Bruno Fernandes, who scored two goals against Uruguay to ensure Portugal’s qualification, is undoubtedly the team’s greatest player currently. In the shocking 2-1 loss to South Korea on Friday, Ricardo Horta scored the first goal.

Is Ronaldo being left behind by Fernando Santos’ team? As it stand, it seems the majority of football fans are already moving on from the iconic player.

He and Australian Mathew Leckie are the only players on the team to have advanced to the round of 16.

Given their poor performance in Group A, it is not surprising that the hosts, Qatar, have four players there. They made history by being the first World Cup host nation to lose all three of their group games.

They only scored one goal during that time, losing to Senegal 3-1.

The entire team is listed below:

Goalkeeper: Meshaal Barsham (Qatar and Al Sadd)
