Cristiano Ronaldo has left his future open after a possible participation in the World Cup in Qatar.
“Only I will decide on my future, nobody else. If I like to continue playing, I’ll continue to play. If not, then,” said the football superstar. At the Estádio do Dragão, the 37-year-old plays on Tuesday (20:45 clock) with Portugal against Nordmasedonia for one of the last tickets for the World Cup in Qatar.
Should Portugal lose the playoff finale, Ronaldo may never play more at a world championship. “I am the boss. Point,” he said to the question about his future.
The exceptional door of Manchester United has no doubt that the Portuguese will qualify for the winter tournament end of the year. “I’m very confident,” he said, saying a wish. “I was in my bed yesterday and thought: I thought it’s nice, when tomorrow the national anthem starts, the music starts and then we all sing without music,” he said. “I’m sure if the fans are with us like Thursday, we will win the game.”
Last Thursday, the Portuguese had also beaten Turkey in Playoff semi-finals (3: 1).
