Stoke’s Mauric Edu dismisses the idea of man-marking Cristiano Ronaldo for USMNT v Portugal [Video]

For some unknown and random reason, Stoke City’s Maurice Edu was asked about the prospect of man-marking Cristiano Ronaldo in order to nullify his threat when the US take on Portugal at the World Cup.

Edu pretty much dismissed the idea out of hand, trying not to laugh as he said ‘that’s not really how to go about planning a soccer game’, saying that it will need to be a collective effort to stop Ronaldo.

How about tethering themseleves to Ronaldo?
