Arturo Vidal says that Cristiano Ronaldo is a “smart ass”, and he expects to dump his Portugal side out of the Confederations Cup.

Vidal’s Chile and Ronaldo’s Portugal will meet in the semi-finals of this summer’s tournament after progressing from the group stages.

The other semi-final will see Germany facing Mexico for a place in the final on July 2.

Bayern Munich midfielder Vidal expects to progress past European champions Portugal, who will be captained by “smart ass” Ronaldo.

“Cristiano is a smart ass!” Vidal told reporters in Russia when asked about the semi-final. “For me he does not exist.

“I have already told my Bayern Munich team-mate [and Germany international] Joshua Kimmich that we will meet again in the final!”
