Finally a world championship for the two giants of world football? This is what Cristiano Ronaldo wants anyway. At a press conference, the Portuguese superstar joked about his photo for Louis Vuitton, in which he appears with Lionel Messi playing chess: “We checkmate life, not just chess. I would like to be the one to checkmate Messi. »

The Manchester United striker, in complete conflict with the English club, is likely to play his last World Cup. “This will be my fifth World Cup, I am focused and very confident. As it happened in chess (with Messi), it would be even better to do it on the football field,” CR7 joked to the media around the world. Portugal’s symbolic number 7 explained that it was an advertising campaign that he “had wanted to do for a long time”, which he was “very proud of”.

Also, when asked about the chances of his choice to win, Cristiano Ronaldo answered ambitiously: “We have huge potential. If we are the best team, we will go all the way. The winning team will be the best. We have youth, it’s a good mix. Portugal’s next match is against Ghana on Thursday 24 November at 17:00: “We have to think about Ghana and take care of ourselves. From there we will grow. »

As for the other favorites of the competition, CR7 did not fail to quote the Blues: “Brazil, Argentina, France are the ones with the best chances. Most people talk about Spain and Germany. But in 2016, we saw that we can surprise and win.” Then Cristiano Ronaldo could afford his first World Cup.
