After Morocco eliminated Portugal from the World Cup. Cristiano Ronaldo finally spoke out. In what is very certainly going to be his final World Cup campaign. Ronaldo struck an emotional figure as he walked straight down the tunnel in tears after seeing his dream come to an end.
However, having been benched for their two knockout games, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has now turned to social media to share his opinion of their World Cup failure.
Ronaldo wrote on Instagram
Sadly, the dream ended yesterday. Reacting to heat is not worth it. I just want everyone to know that despite all the talk, speculation, and writing, my commitment to Portugal has not wavered in the slightest. I have always stood out for the common good and have never abandoned my nation or my coworkers. also read:Gujarat CM: Narendra Modi to attend ceremony
Not much else to say at this time. I appreciate Portugal. Regards, Qatar When the dream was there, it was enjoyable. Now, let’s hope the weather will serve as a good guide and enable everyone to reach their own conclusions.
After Portugal’s elimination, Ronaldo’s girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez lost no time in criticising manager Fernando Santos.
Her post on social media read: “Giving your face to someone who doesn’t deserve it is improper.
Your friend and coach made the incorrect choice today. That friend that has garnered so much praise and respect from you. the same person who watched how everything changed when they put you on the field, but it was too late.
The best player in the world and its most potent weapon are not to be taken lightly. Much less ought one to defend those who are undeserving. We learn lessons from life. We gain knowledge today, not lose it. We respect you.
However, Santos reaffirmed his position on Ronaldo and defended the choice to omit him from the starting lineup.
Tomás said: “I don’t regret it because the team played well against Switzerland. Cristiano is a huge player, and he entered the game when we realised it was important. I regret nothing like that.”
