Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo will debut a new pair of limited edition Nike boots for the World Cup knockout stages.

The 33-year-old has been in sensational form in Russia so far, scoring four times from three games to help his country navigate Group B and qualify in second place.

Ronaldo did however miss a penalty in their last game as Portugal could only manage a draw against Iran to set up a mouthwatering last-16 clash with Uruguay, who breezed through their group by winning every match.

The Portugal star announced the launch of the new Nike boots that he will wear for the remainder of the tournament with a post on Instagram.

He said the boots ‘celebrate the 85 international goals’ he has scored during his career.

Ronaldo will be hoping to continue his scoring streak in Russia with his new Mercurial Superfly 360 boots as he bids to win the golden boot and World Cup.

The turquoise-coloured boots are supported by a golden chrome sole plate and Ronaldo gave his new wheels a test drive during training on Wednesday morning at their Moscow base.

The Portugal players are fully aware of the threat Uruguay carry and seemed focused as they begun their preparations for Saturday’s clash.

In addition to the boots Ronaldo will wear, 154 pairs will be made available to the public.
