Ronaldo will be at his peak in World Cup - Figo

The former captain of Seleção is optimistic about the performance of this team in the World Cup.

Luis Figo is confident that Portugal can fight for the World Cup title and that Ronaldo will be at his peak.

Ronaldo is not in a good condition in Manchester United and has been benched this season, and therefore he is heavily under the pressure of the media. He planned to leave United in the summer but failed to do so and ended up staying at Old Trafford. However, Figo believes that Ronaldo will be at his peak at the World Cup.

He said: "I have no doubt about Cristiano [Ronaldo]'s quality, commitment and professionalism. 

"I'm sure he'll be at the World Cup in the best possible [physical] condition. What will those conditions be? I don't know. 

"But without a doubt, given his quality and professionalism, as I said, Portugal can rest easy about what he can give to the Selecao."

"I think Portugal has one of the best teams in the world. But a Euro and a World Cup depend on many factors. Not only on individual and collective quality," he added.

"I hope that Portugal, after a complicated qualification phase, can show its value, that we can achieve our goals, that is to say, reach the final and win this World Cup."
