Roпaldo cried wheп Portυgal was elimiпated

The 37-year-old sυperstar coυld пot stop her tears after Portυgal lost to Morocco iп the qυarterfiпals of the 2022 World Cυp oп the eveпiпg of December 10.

After the referee Facundo Tello blew the whistle to end the match, the camera lens caught the moment Ronaldo burst into tears. The former MU striker understands that he no longer hopes to win the World Cup in his career. Qatar 2022 is considered the last time CR7 will attend the World Cup.

Goncalo Ramos’ good performance with a hat-trick in the round of 16 continued to push the 37-year-old striker to the bench against Morocco in the quarter-finals. After the “European Selecao” played at a stalemate in the first half and lost the goal, Ronaldo was substituted by coach Fernando Santos for Ruben Neves in the 51st minute.

Ronaldo made his 196th appearance for Portugal, a FIFA record. However, the arrival of Ronaldo could not make a difference for the 2016 European champions. They were helpless against Morocco’s well-organized defense. In the end, Portugal received a 0-1 defeat and left the tournament immediately in the quarter-finals.

Personally, Ronaldo has an average performance. In the minutes of being on the field, Ronaldo launched exactly one shot and once created a scoring opportunity. His expected goal ratio (xG) is only 0.05. SofaScore rated Ronaldo 6.7 points.

The 37-year-old superstar’s final match at the World Cup did not go as expected.

Portugal controlled the ball 74%, 12 shots on goal, 3 times sent the ball on target but no goals. The African representative also has an opportunity when he actively retreats and waits for the opportunity to counterattack.

Overcoming Portugal, Morocco created a historic milestone when becoming the first African team to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup. Meanwhile, coach Fernando Santos has a strong squad but has failed in three consecutive major tournaments (World Cup 2018, Euro 2020 and World Cup 2022).
