Cristiano Ronaldo will play the next World Cup at the age of 37. And then ? He wants to continue with Portugal…
The thirst for victory Cristiano Ronaldo has not diminished over the years. The man with five Ballons d’Or may be going through one of the most complicated and least prolific periods of his career as a professional footballer, but he is still looking forward and continues to believe in his ability to stay at the highest level. So much so that he has just made a big announcement about the follow-up he intends to give to his story with the Portuguese selection.
Present at the “Golden Quintas” ceremony, the Manchester United player indicated that the 2022 World Cup would not be his last international tournament. In other words, CR7 intends to apply for a place in the Portuguese Seleçao for Euro 2024. He will then be thirty-nine years old. The will is therefore displayed. It remains to be seen whether whoever will then be in charge of the team will find it appropriate to give him a chance. The level of Cristiano Ronaldo will then be examined.
stop or else
And at the moment, nothing says that the attacker will always be so important for his selection. In difficulty at Manchester United, the former Real Madrid lost his starting place and has been content with match fights since the start of the season. His style of play now forces his coaches to build the team around him, even if it means destabilizing it, a choice which notably posed the problem of the last season at United. As a champion, CR7 always wants to aim high. It will be necessary to wait two years to know if Portugal still appeals to him, or if a page of history will turn.
