The World Cup without Cristiano Ronaldo will be under the World Cup. Forgive me in North Macedonia, but Cristiano’s Portuguese non-Portuguese tournament is like a cashless Sunday. It is unbearable. It does not mean that the great soccer striker wants the final dance against his arch-rival, his favorite villain, Lionel Messi.
The Argentine player still has his ticket and is watching, relaxing, and drinking with his teammate, as the only player in the world to have a claim on his throne fighting for merit. I’m sure Messi wants Cristiano to be in Qatar and vice versa.
Perhaps, leaving, on the one hand, the hostility many fans are asked about the Portuguese icon, we will all agree that one afternoon this November, we would like to see Portugal face Argentina rather than Northern Macedonia against Argentina. Even if this means I am not allowed to enter the world of Enis Bardhi, that talented Levant player, this is what I believe.
Cristiano has played in four World Cups, and although he is 37 years old, it is not clear if he will play in the next one at the age of 41. but that is far from over and the priority is the upcoming tournament. First, Portugal must beat North Macedonia, and to do so it has a team of top players.
Next to Cristiano are Joao Felix, Goncalo Guedes, Joao Cancelo, Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva, Diogo Jota … and an endless host of stars who are always in the service of a great leader.
Despite his level of sport and competition, Qatar wants him to succeed in this tournament. The World Cup needs him. You are expanding the event and have more followers on social media than anyone else in the world. Cristiano can’t watch you on TV, we won’t be with him as a television commentator at such an event.
The World Cup is the one. He will probably not win it as he has not won it four times in this tournament but if he is there he will be able to say before every game that he will win it. And no one will ever tell him he won’t.
