‘I would never turn my back on my teammates’: Cristiano Ronaldo makes statement on Portugal career & media speculation

Cristiano Ronaldo has spoken out over Portugal’s World Cup exit and his involvement in the squad.

Portugal clashed with Morocco on Saturday afternoon in the quarter-final of the World Cup.

Portugal headed into the game as favourites after putting six past Switzerland the game prior.

But when all was said and done, Morocco came away with a 1-0 win.

Morocco will go on to face France in the semi-finals whilst Portugal head home.

Their exit on Saturday also likely means Cristiano Ronaldo will never win the World Cup during his illustrious career.

The 37-year-old started on the bench in Portugal’s last two games, coming on after 51 minutes vs Morocco.

“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 on the highest level in the world was my biggest dream,” he wrote. ” fought for it. I fought hard for this dream.

“In the 5 presences that I scored in World Cups over 16 years, always alongside great players and supported by millions of Portuguese people, I gave my all. I left everything on the field. I never turned my face to 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 much has been said, much has been written, much has been speculated, but my dedication to Portugal has not 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’s not much more to say. Thank you, Portugal. Thank you, Qatar. The dream was beautiful while it lasted… Now, it’s time to be a good advisor and allow each one to draw their own conclusions.”
