Cristiano Ronaldo claimed on last Sunday that he has always wanted to play for the national team of Portugal, that had been eliminated from the WC the day before, however he was cryptic regarding his future with the national squad.
The thirty-seven-year-old, a 5-times champion of the Ballon D’Or had traveled to Qatar determined to show that he might still contribute to his national side. He did, however, leave the tourney in tears as entering in the a 2nd-half replacement in Portugal’s one-nil quarterfinal defeat against Morocco.
In a social media post after the match, arguably the greatest footballer of the generation , and probably of all time has said that since the start of the world cup, there has been a lot written, said and speculated around him. However, his dedication to help the national side has not changed a little bit.
Cristiano Ronaldo Want Time To Become The Adviser For His Future Endeavours:
Despite the elimination of Portugal from the World Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo added another feather to his cap when he scored against Ghanaian team in their first group stage game to become the only player in soccer history to accomplish that feat.
He declined to say if the World Cup in 2022 be his last. Saying he already was planning for the European Championship of 2024.
However, the player’s post on Sunday read him thanking Portugal and Qatar saying it was a great dream till it lasted, and now he wish for time to be the adviser of his future endeavours.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s club career is also in doubt as Man United cancelled his deal two days before the campaign of the WC began, making him a free agent. According to rumors in Spain, the erstwhile Real Madrid as well as Juventus star is ready to join Saudi side Al Nassr, but Cristiano firmly rejected this on December 6.
