On December 11, Ronaldo broke his silence after Portugal’s 2022 World Cup journey ended in disappointment. CR7 took to Instagram to share their sadness and regret when they couldn’t go far after losing 0-1 to Morocco in the quarterfinals.
Basketball star LeBron James sent Ronaldo a very short message after Portugal’s defeat
The 37-year-old striker said winning the World Cup has always been his “biggest and most ambitious dream”, which unfortunately has not been realized. Returning home early, Ronaldo decided not to whine or criticize but instead emphasized his love for the national team. There were many questions about why Ronaldo did not start in the match against Morocco, with his girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez, even criticizing Portugal coach Fernando Santos. However, the 37-year-old striker does not want to make things bigger.
“There is no point in reacting hotly. I just want everyone to know that a lot has been said, a lot has been written, a lot has been rumored, but my dedication to Portugal has not changed for a second. I have always been someone who fights for everyone’s cause and I will never turn my back on my teammates and country,” Ronaldo wrote on Instagram.

After seeing Ronaldo’s message, American basketball star LeBron James wrote an extremely short comment with only 1 word but very meaningful. LeBron James knew it simply when he called the former Real Madrid superstar “Legend” (meaning: legend).
True, while Ronaldo did not win the World Cup, no one can deny that he is one of the best in the history of world football. CR7 has proven itself at both club and international level, and as LeBron James once said, Ronaldo is already a “legend” despite falling behind with the biggest trophy in world football.
