The plane carrying Cristiano Ronaldo and the other Portuguese football stars has arrived at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport.

­Portugal will walk out onto the pitch of the Luzhniki stadium on Friday as they take on Russia in a World Cup 2014 qualifier.

The two teams currently share the lead in Group F, both enjoying a 100 per cent record – two wins in two games.  

A huge crowd of local fans greeted Portugal at the airport, with Ronaldo’s autograph being their primary target.  

Meanwhile, Cristiano’s participation in the match is still in doubt.  

The 27-year-old has been training individually due to the shoulder injury he picked up in Real Madrid’s 2-2 draw against Barcelona at the weekend.
