CR7 and Portugal have a tough match against Switzerland for a ticket to the quarterfinals at Qatar 2022, and in that match, he has the opportunity to reach nine goals in his five World Cup appearances, something that, if achieved, would be great milestone for the 37-year-old player.

– South Africa 2010: 1

– Brazil 2014: 1

– Russia 2018: 4

– Qatar 2022: 1

The former Real Madrid and Manchester United striker has a great opportunity to break the curse and the criticism that he has not scored a goal in a swin or go home match in druring his five participations in World Cups, and the opponent is ideal, as he already knows what it is like to score against Switzerland in different competitions.

With one day to go until the Round of 16, six of the eight quarterfinalists for Qatar 2022 are already known.

Portugal’s current World Cup outlook

The game between Portugal and Switzerland will be the second of the day and will kick off at 2:00 pm ET at the Lusail Stadium, the winner of this game will face the winner of the match between Morocco and Spain, who a couple of hours earlier will define the other remaining place among the best eight in the world.

Those who have already booked their place in the quarterfinals are, according to the order of incidence, the Netherlands (who defeated the United States), Argentina (who defeated Australia), France (who defeated Poland), England (who defeated Senegal), Croatia (who defeated Japan) and Brazil (who defeated South Korea).

Cristiano Ronaldo’s new club Al Nassr: Squad, coach and titles

Cristiano Ronaldo‘s future is already clear. The Portuguese is moving to the Saudi Arabian league to play for Al Nassr.

The striker has left Manchester United and starts his sporting retirement in the Saudi Arabian league.

At Al Nassr he will sign the biggest contract in the history of football.

The Saudi club has offered him a total of 200 million per season in a contract for the next two years.

Of this, just under 100 million euros is for his sporting activities and other fees will be for advertising and marketing.

Al Nassr was founded in 1955, the team plays its home games at Mrsool Park and its colors are yellow and blue. They are currently coached by former Roma coach Rudi Garcia.


Al Nassr was an amateur club until 1960, when it was officially registered with the General Presidency of Youth Welfare.

At that time, Abdul Rahman bin Saud Al Saud became the head of the club.

Al Nassr entered the second division and were subsequently promoted to the first division in 1963.

During the 1970s and 1980s, the club won four Saudi Arabian Premier League titles, six King’s Cups, three Crown Prince’s Cups and three Federation Cups.

In the 1990s, Al Nassr won two more Saudi Premier League titles, one King’s Cup and one Federation Cup.

During the time from 2003 to 2007 the club suffered setbacks.

In 2008, after a lot of hard work, they won the Federation Cup against city rivals Al Hilal.

After years of fighting and competing for different titles, Al Nassr won the Saudi Arabian Super Cup in 2020 and 2021.

World Cup 2022: FIFA makes Cristiano Ronaldo angry, confirms he did not touch the ball in Bruno Fernndes’ goal vs. Uruguay

Cristiano Ronaldo thought he had scored for Portugal in their 2-0 win over Uruguay at the Qatar 2022 World Cup, but the goal was awarded to Bruno Fernandes.

Ronaldo initially appeared to have tied Eusebio, Portugal’s record World Cup goalscorer with nine goals at the finals, when he rose to try to head home Fernandes’ cross in the 54th minute.

However, the goal was later awarded to his former Manchester United teammate Fernandes and replays suggest the 37-year-old did not get a touch on it.

FIFA confirmed Cristiano Ronaldo did not touch the ball

FIFA confirmed to ESPN that Cristiano Ronaldo did not touch the ball on Bruno Fernandes’ cross, the decision was endorsed by the technology handled by world soccer’s highest governing body.

“In the match between Portugal and Uruguay, using the ‘Connected Ball’ technology housed in the official Adidas match ball, we can definitively prove that there is no contact with Cristiano Ronaldo’s ball for the first goal,” FIFA explained in a statement.

The release remarked that “no external force could be measured on the ball, as evidenced by the lack of ‘beats’ in the measurements.” “The 500 Hz IMU sensor inside the ball allows us to be very precise in our analysis,” the body warned.

What’s next for Portugal at the World Cup?

The good news for CR7 and for Portugal is that with the aforementioned victory against Uruguay they secured their place in the round of 16 and will most likely avoid a meeting with Brazil, both being the leaders of Groups G and H. With that peace of mind, they will finish their participation in the first round against South Korea.

World Cup 2022: Cristiano Ronaldo vs. Tom Brady: Who will retire as a champion before retiring?

The careers of both Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady and Manchester United‘s Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo are living their last moments, of that there is no doubt. With the World Cup just days away, it is prudent to ask ourselves, which is more likely, TB12 retiring with his eighth Super Bowl or CR7 becoming a world champion for the first time in Qatar 2022?

While the current club level of the striker who made his debut for Sporting CP in his native country is clearly worse than that of the former husband of Brazilian top model Gisele Bndchen, it is also true that the Portuguese national team has far more talent than the Bucs have today.

What are the current situations of Cristiano Ronaldo and Tom Brady?

As for the current situations in both competitions, in both the World Cup and the NFL there are 32 teams, in Qatar 2022, Portugal is Group H favorite with Ghana, Uruguay and South Korea, while the Bucs (5-5) are the lone leaders of the NFC South over the Atlanta Falcons (4-6), Carolina Panthers (3-7) and New Orleans Saints (3-7).

CR7 said Thursday that if he reaches the final with Portugal against Argentina and he scores a hat-trick, while Lionel Messi scores two goals, he would retire, the remoteness of that scenario that was put to him by a journalist at a press conference makes it difficult to think that the striker with more goals in the history of the UEFA Champions League will say goodbye to soccer after this tournament, but it is very likely that it will be his last World Cup.

Meanwhile, after Brady’s divorce with Gisele, it is also likely that this will not be the 45-year-old’s last season in the NFL, he could even compete to reach another Super Bowl with his third franchise.

Who will retire a champion?

The bottom line is that today it seems unlikely that both Cristiano Ronaldo will win a World Cup and Tom Brady will win another Super Bowl, however, both have shown that they know how to go against the odds and beat the odds.

World Cup 2022: Cristiano Ronaldo’s reason to retire from soccer at the end of this World Cup

Cristiano Ronaldo‘s last days have been a whirlwind, and although he is concentrating with the Portuguese national team, he has talked about his present with Manchester United, so it is very possible that CR7 will no longer have a team at the end of the World Cup, although that may no longer matter, as he opened the door to his retirement under certain conditions.

Cristiano’s retirement is directly linked to Messi

Although Cristiano Ronaldo has already said on other occasions that he would like to play until he is 40 years old, and much has been speculated in which team his career will continue after the World Cup, but now he pointed out that there is a possibility of retiring after Qatar 2022.

“I want to play two or three more years, maximum. I want to finish at 40, a good age. I don’t know the future. Sometimes you plan one thing for your life and as I said many times, life is dynamic and you never know what is going to happen,” he sentenced, although he also opened the possibility for Qatar to be his last tournament before hanging up his boots.

In the last interview CR7 gave, the reporter questioned him about a hypothetical case in which Argentina and Portugal face each other in the final, and Messi scores two goals and the Portuguese scores three…” I’m retiring.”

The fans are always in Ronaldo’s heart

“It’s probably my last World Cup, of course, my fifth World Cup. I don’t know what’s going to happen after the World Cup, but as I told you before, and I’ll say it again, the fans will always be in my heart and I hope they will be by my side, even if I come back, or if I don’t come back, or if I stay or whatever. Nobody is perfect. The episodes in life that we all have is part of being a human being, it’s part of me being a human being and a father as well. I’m always going to make mistakes. But I don’t know, it’s difficult to say right now what will happen after the World Cup because my focus is for the World Cup, for the Portugal national team.”

Cristiano remains motivated to win the World Cup

“My motivation is not the same as it was a few months ago. I’m not saying I need a new challenge, we’ll see. My focus is on the World Cup. It’s probably good for United and for me to have a new challenge. But if I come back, I hope people will let me shine as I have done at other clubs in recent years,” he said of his time with United and Ten Hag.

Ronaldo and Messi are coming to their fifth World Cup, they are two of the main players to follow in Qatar, and both have yet to win a title for their nations, so we will be able to see them at their best and with a lot of ambition to achieve their only unfinished business.

World Cup 2022: Nike Footballverse: The best World Cup commercial reveals who is better: 2006’s Ronaldo or 2022’s Mbappe?

We are just a few days away from the start of the Qatar 2022 World Cup and different brands are doing their best to score a goal with the spectators. One of them is Nike, which released a spectacular commercial with a multiverse of soccer stars.

What is the Footballverse all about?

The incredible commercial is titled The FC Footballverse and begins with a one-on-one between Mbapp and Ronaldinho. In an almost 5-minute video, Nike brought together several soccer idols from the past few years who compete in “a scientific experiment” to see who is the best player among them all.

Stars such as Kylian Mbapp, Ronaldhino, Ronaldo, Cristiano Ronaldo and Alex Morgan are teleported into a laboratory to demonstrate their skills to the rhythm of the iconic 80s song Weird Science by Oingo Bongo.

Notably absent is another living soccer legend, Lionel Messi, but considering that Adidas, Nike’s historic rival, usually responds to these ads, we’d be surprised to see him in an ad.

Who’s involved in the Footballverse?

Things get out of hand and the scientists decide to rescue many more players from other eras, leaving a show that many would pay to see in real life. The cast of stars that appear is on par with Nike’s greatest productions, and the list is made up of none other than:

Cristiano Ronaldo (2022 and 2004 version).

Kylian Mbappe.

Ronaldo (2022, 2002 and 1998 versions).

Ronaldinho (2006 version).

Alex Morgan.

Virgil Van Dijk.

Sam Kerr.

Kevin DeBruyne.

Leah Williamson.

Phil Foden.

Carli Lloyd (2015 version).

Christian Jr.

Shane Kluivert.

Edgar Davids (2000 version).

“Footballverse exemplifies Nike’s long-held belief that the future of sport has infinite potential, and encourages a new generation of footballers to prove it,” Nike said in a statement.

World Cup 2022: Bruno Fernandes gives Cristiano Ronaldo frosty greeting after his Piers Morgan interview

Cristiano Ronaldo once again stole all the headlines this week after his interview with English journalist Piers Morgan rocked the world of football.

The Portuguese striker, who is contracted to Manchester United until next summer, was overly critical of the both his club and his manager, revealing that he felt betrayed by way he’s been treated.

“I feel betrayed. Not only the coach, there are two or three more who want me out of the club. I have no respect for him (ten Hag) because he doesn’t respect me. If you have no respect for me, I will never have respect for you”, said the striker. He also called out former teammates and club legends Wayne Rooney and Gary Neville for what he perceives to be their constant and unjust criticism of him.

Ronaldo seems to have selective memory, and conveniently forgot that ten Hag made him captain in United’s Premier League match against Aston Villa, just two weeks after he stormed off the pitch when called upon during a match against Tottenham. In fact, the general opinion at United and among their fan base is that ten Hag has tried his best to accommodate Ronaldo, despite his frequent childish outbursts.

Tension in Portugal squad

It’s no surprise then that Ronald’s recent interview has caused indignation amongst both payers, fans and pundits. One such player is the Portuguese’s Manchester Untied and international teammate Bruno Fernandes. The pair recently joined up with the Portugal squad at their training camp ahead of the World Cup and the moment they saw each other for the first time since the interview was caught on camera.

As they say, ‘actions speak louder than words’ and that was certainly the case with Bruno in this encounter, who gave his international teammate an overwhelmingly frosty greeting. Fernandes looked at him like a disappointed parent, barely making eye contact and offering a weak handshake.

After the encounter, Ronaldo was clearly taken aback, staring into space for several seconds.

A good group dynamic is fundamental for a successful World Cup run, especially at this year’s addition given players have had such little time together. The two players will need to put this episode behind them before Portugal’s World Cup campaign starts on November 24 against Ghana.
