Germany play their 100th World Cup as they take on Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal in a high-voltage clash to open Group G.

Ronaldo and his teammates can expect to come under massive early pressure in their World Cup opener against the two-time champions.

Germany always prepare meticulously for their opening match at a tournament and have the results to show for it – winning 12 of their 17 World Cup openers and losing only once, 2-1 to Algeria in 1982. Germany bounced back to reach the final that year.
