Cristiano Ronaldo is still in the spotlight of all the world’s media because of the World Cup round of 16 in Qatar when he entered the game only in the 71st minute of this very important match for Portugal.
Santoš’s decision caused a shock, but also an impressive reaction, to the game of Goncalo Ramos, the scorer of three goals.
It is speculated that CR7 had a conflict with Santos, who has not hidden his sympathy for him for years and also considers him the greatest football player of all time. The information appeared that Cristiano was thinking of leaving the national team to finally give a short answer to the Portuguese media in the training camp:
“If my stay on the bench will bring Portugal at least the World Cup final, tell me where I need to sign that I agree to it and that I will never protest?” Ronaldo shocked, but also delighted the journalists present.
On Saturday, Portugal will play against Morocco in the quarter-finals and try to reach the first semi-final since 2006 when they played against France.
