Cristiano Ronaldo’s emotional message after Portugal’s elimination from the Qatar 2022 World Cup:
Winning a World Cup for Portugal was the biggest and most ambitious dream of my career. Fortunately, I won many titles of international dimension, including for Portugal, but putting the name of our country at the highest level in the world was my biggest dream.
I fought for it. I fought hard for this dream. In the 5 appearances that I scored in World Cups over 16 years, always alongside great players and supported by millions of Portuguese, I gave it my all. I left everything on the field. I never gave up on the fight and I never gave up on that dream.
Unfortunately, yesterday the dream ended. It is not worth reacting hot. I just want everyone to know that a lot has been said, a lot has been written, a lot has been speculated, but my dedication to Portugal hasn’t changed for an instant. I was always one more person fighting for everyone’s goal and I would never turn my back on my teammates and my country.
For now, there is not much more to say. Thanks Portugal. Thanks, Qatar. The dream was beautiful while it lasted… Now it’s time to be a good advisor and let everyone draw their own conclusions from it.
