Ronaldo Breaks Silence After Portugal’s Loss To Morocco

Portugal striker, Cristiano Ronaldo has said that the 2022 World Cup in Qatar may be his last after his country’s world cup loss to Morocco on Saturday.

Naija News reports that the Portuguese team suffered a shock 1-0 defeat in the hands of the African team.

Morocco made history by becoming the first African nation to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup following Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Portugal courtesy of a 43rd-minute goal from Youssef En-Nesyri.

But for Ronaldo, the loss was a heavy blow on his long-term ambition to win the World Cup.

After the loss which forced his team to exit the World Cup, Ronaldo cried while leaving the pitch to the dressing room.

In a statement released on his Facebook on Sunday, the legend said, “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 Portugal, but putting our country’s name on the highest foot in the World was my biggest dream.

“I fought for it. I fought hard for this dream. In the 5 appearances, I scored in World Cups over 16 years, always by the side of great players and supported by millions of Portuguese, I gave my all. Leave it all out on the field. I never turned my face to the fight and I never gave up on that dream.

“Sadly yesterday the dream ended It’s not worth reacting to heat. I just want you all to know that much has been said, much has been written, much has been speculated, but my dedication to Portugal has not changed not for a moment. I was always one fighting for the objective of all and I would never turn my back on my colleagues and my country.

He, however, appreciated his supporters hoping that the future would be fair to him.

He added, “Not much more to say for now. Thank you Portugal. Thank you Qatar. The dream was nice while it lasted, now, it’s hoping that the weather will be good advisor and allow each one to draw their own conclusions.”

The 37-year-old has won  all the major titles in Europe, including the UEFA Euro in 2016.

He has five prestigious Ballon d’Or titles to his name and the highest goal scorer (819) in male footballer.
