The Portugal squad landed in Moscow this week, where they will be based for the tournament, and had their first training session before they kick-off their World Cup campaign on Sunday.

The Euro 2016 winners are fine-tuning their preparations at their Moscow base ahead of their World Cup opener against 2010 champions Spain.
There have been plenty of smiles in Portugal’s camp recently and unlike a number of sides, their warm-up matches in recent weeks have been promising.
After being held to a 2-2 draw by Tunisia – who are in England’s group this summer – last month, they played out a goalless stalemate with Belgium before thumping Algeria 3-0 on Thursday.
Their opening game against Spain could prove decisive in terms of who wins Group B. They face Morocco afterwards on June 20 before taking on Iran in their final group game five days later.
