Cristiano Ronaldo can make Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s “dream” come true at Euro 2024, but the Georgian is “not afraid” to face the Portuguese.

The qualifying places are still at stake in Group F and the fight for the round of 16 promises to be very tight. Portugal are already assured of qualifying after their victories over Czechoslovakia and Turkey.

Georgia have only one point to their name, but a victory against Portugal could see them qualify. Napoli star Kvaratskhelia says she has no fears about facing Ronaldo with so much at stake: “He was an idol to me. I’m happy to see him on the field. It’s a dream that I had [de l’affronter]and we’ll see what happens« .

“A dream to face Cr7”

Zuriko Davitashvili is also hoping to challenge Ronaldo in the heat of battle and said he is not afraid of the encounter: “It’s a pleasure to face him, but I’m not afraid. I’m looking forward to it and we want to show that we are capable of playing well against these teams.”

There is a good chance that Cr7 will be rested by Portugal on Wednesday, with Roberto Martinez able to rotate his squad. Kvaratskhelia hopes the 39-year-old will take to the field at some point, with a small jersey swap lottery to take into account after the match.
