Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal will face Turkey in the knockout match for the 2022 FIFA World Cup which is to be held somewhere near October. No one would want him to get knocked out as it could be his last World Cup campaign of his career.
Other than Ronaldo, there are two more Portuguese in the formation – Bruno Fernandes and Joao Cancelo. But they are not as old as their captain so it will be inappropriate for them to retire after this World Cup.

“‘You played with my father Elanga’, and then everything clicked and I said ‘okay’, and it made me happy because I wasn’t the only Swedish one in Manchester, we had another Swedish player.”
