The story of Cristiano Ronaldo in the 2022 World Cup ended. The Portugal team was defeated by Morocco by a single goal in the quarterfinals of the World Cup in Qatar. After that, those directed by Fernando Santos went to Lisbon, with the exception of the 37-year-old captain.
Cristiano Ronaldo stayed in Doha and decided to travel this Sunday with Georgina Rodríguez and their children in their private jet. The Portuguese footballer did not want to speak through the media, but he did do so through his social networks.
Portugal was eliminated from the World Cup on Saturday, losing to Morocco (1-0). After the defeat, Cristiano Ronaldo immediately left the field visibly collapsed and with tears in his eyes.
It remains to be seen if that was the last time the world saw the star in a big national team event. On Sunday, through Instagram, Cristiano did not confirm if he would retire from international matches, but acknowledged that his dream of winning a World Cup “term”.
Outside of CR7, the Portuguese footballers withdrew from Qatar. The plane, with some of the Portuguese players, landed in Lisbon late in the afternoon, where dozens of people came to welcome the Seleçao. This receptionit is really nice. It is the recognition of the Portuguese people”, declared the coach Fernando Santos, who must meet with the Portuguese Football Federation to resolve his future in office.
Let’s remember that ‘CR7’ said goodbye to the Qatar 2022 World Cup with a goal on his record, which he achieved in the 3-2 victory over Ghana, in the group stage debut. That annotation served for the forward to enter the history of the tournament: he is the only one who has scored in five different editions.
