Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo, has been named in the worst team of the 2022 World Cup group stages.

Ronaldo was listed alongside four Qatar players.

The 37-year-old started every match but struggled to make an impact, scoring only once – a controversial penalty.

Sofascore, announcing their worst side for the group stages, put Ronaldo upfront with an average rating of 6.37 across his three matches.

Only players who had played 60% of minutes across the group phase were eligible.

Meshaal Barsham was the lowest-rated goalkeeper, scoring an average of 6.10 for his two performances, in which he conceded five times.

The two centre-backs are from Costa Rica, with Francisco Calvo (6.25) and Oscar Duarte (6.30) forming the partnership in the middle.
