Cristiano Ronaldo and his teammates were left stunned after they drew 0-0 with the almighty Cape Verde.

The Portuguese team worth hundreds of millions of pounds couldn't find the back of the net against the team ranked 117th in the world.

The former Manchester United player was left flat on his face by the end of the game as the African team played their hearts out.

This was one of their last games before they embark on their path to try and win the World Cup.

If they perform like this in South Africa, England won't have to worry about playing them, or trying to beat them at penalties again.

Portugal are in Group H, with Brazil, Ivory Coast and North Korea. All of these teams have showed promise lately and could be a challenge especially if Portugal plays like they did last night. 

Never heard of Cape Verde?

They haven't won anything. The only people to come out of Cape Verde are Luis Nani, the Manchester United player who was born in Cape Verde but plays for Portugal, and Henrick Larsson's father although he also played for another team, Sweden.
