The unsigned striker continued: “I fought for it. I fought hard for this dream. I have always scored in five matches in my career, always with great players and supported by millions of Portuguese. I gave everything. Everyone went out on the lawn. I have never given up on this fight and never given up on this dream.
Ronaldo was already in a World Cup in 2006, 2010, 2014 and 2018. Should be working with the title in Qatar at the end. “Unfortunately, that dream was shattered yesterday. It is not worth reacting to hot things. I just want you all to know that despite everything that has been said, written, speculated, my love and devotion for Portugal has not changed, not even for a second. I have always fought for a great cause and I will never turn my back on my colleagues and my country.”
In conclusion, Ronaldo writes: “At this moment I have nothing more to say. Thank you Portugal thank you Qatar. The dream was beautiful while it lasted.
The superstar broke down in tears after the 1-0 loss to Morocco. After that, he didn’t say anything else in the mixed area or on the TV microphone.
For this, his girlfriend Georgina and sister Catia Aveiro remained active on social media.
For Ronaldo, this is probably the last World Cup of his career. At tournaments in the USA, Canada and Mexico in 2026, the Portuguese will already be 41 years old.
The quarter-final for the superstar was the 196th international match of his career. He passed the FIFA record of Badr Al Mutwa (37) from Kuwait. Was the record game his last?
