Kriralok Desk: Fernando Santos’ neglect during the World Cup in Qatar, then Cristiano Ronaldo’s tearful farewell to Morocco in the quarter-finals. There were tears as he walked back through the tunnel to the dressing room after Portugal’s early exit. Many saw the end of his international career. But the new coach Roberto Martinez said, CR7’s Portugal career is not over yet.
The former coach of Belgium did not speak. Ronaldo has been included for the Euro 2024 qualifiers. According to report, Martinez also discussed with the experienced forward before the selection to the national team.
After the World Cup, Ronaldo left Europe at the end of last year and joined Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia. His decision also fueled speculation about the future of the national team. Ronaldo has already shared the record for the most international matches played in men’s football with Bader Al-Mutawa of Kuwait.
A few days later, the Philippines will face Kuwait, Portugal will fight with Liechtenstein. That means that record is not going to be singled out very soon.
