Ronaldo could not control the tears
Cristiano Ronaldo could not control his emotions after Portugal’s exit from the World Cup. Tears started flowing from Ronaldo’s eyes while going out of the ground. Ronaldo probably knew very well that now his dream of winning the World Cup could not be fulfilled. This could possibly be the last World Cup of his career. Ronaldo’s emotional video is viral on social media.
Ronaldo’s entry into the World Cup was marred by controversy
Even in the match against Morocco, Ronaldo was not included in the starting XI. In his place, young footballer Gonsalo Romos got a chance in the starting XI. Romos is the only player who scored 3 goals in the pre-quarterfinal against Switzerland. However, he could not do wonders in the quarter-finals. The Qatar FIFA World Cup has been one to forget quickly for Ronaldo. Ronaldo’s entry in the World Cup was amidst disputes with the club.
