Cristiano Ronaldo just wants Portugal to qualify for the FIFA World Cup

Cristiano Ronaldo recently reached a personal milestone as the 32 year old player scored twice during Portugal’s 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualification match against Hungary which was played on March 25 and concluded in a 2-0 triumph for Portugal.

It was during this match that Cristiano Ronaldo reached his 70th goal for his national side.

Even though C.Ronaldo was able to find the back of the net on 2 occasions and mark his 70th goal, this is fairly irrelevant for the Portuguese player or at least this is what the star of Real Madrid said as he stated that he just wants to see Portugal qualify for the upcoming edition of the 2018 FIFA World Cup and help them in any way that he can.

“We started out timid. We were slow to react to their tactics, but everything changed with the first goal. The team played better, more confidently, and the goals came naturally. The team is good. We have a lot of young players.” Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo said.

This 3-2 triumph over Hungary has allowed Portugal to cement their spot in the 2nd place of Group B of the 2018 FIFA World Cup as they have secured 12 points from their opening 5 qualification matches and only Switzerland has more points with 15 points.

South African goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke has joined the list of goalscoring shot stoppers as he netted last minute to win a point for his club.

Baroka played Orlando Pirates when Masuluke scored a bicycle kick from the edge of the box even whilst surrounded by defenders. The beautiful goal is one that top strikers in the world might not even be able to successfully execute.

Baroka trailed behind after Pirates had gone ahead by a lone goal. Masuluke joined the rest of the players for a corner kick in injury time. Jackson Mabokgwane punched the ball out poorly, leaving it for the 23-year old to send the ball back acrobatically. The fans went wild and Masuluke showed off dance moves. Masuluke ran to the corner with excited teammates rushing to meet him at the Peter Mokaba Stadium. Masuluke started what seems like a well-rehearsed celebration routine while ecstatic home crowd cheered on. The goalkeeper definitely enjoyed his time in the spotlight after his brilliant effort.

German champions Bayern Munich and Spanish super weight Real Madrid are reportedly locked in a serious battle for Metz youngster Vincent Thill.

The young player’s agent confirmed that both top sides have made attempts at luring the Thill. The highly rated youngster made his debut for the first team of the Ligue 1 outfit this term. However, he is already playing for the Luxembourg national side despite being just 16 years old.

Thill has six caps for his country, and his rise has attracted interests from top clubs who are now vying for his signature. The player’s agent, Didier Philippe said:

“Bayern thought he was available for an interesting transfer fee, but that was not what Metz had in mind. The transfer did not happen for financial reasons. But I think it was important for Vincent to sign his first professional deal with Metz.”

“I can confirm that Real Madrid are keeping tabs on him, but I do not know if Zidane personally called him. But Madrid and Bayern are not the only teams that have shown an interest in him. There are other big teams as well. You do not see a 16-year old play in Ligue 1 everyday,” Philippe added. Read more BAYERN AND MADRID FIGHT FOR METZ YOUNGSTER

Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema are in the Real Madrid squad for Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final first leg at Manchester City but both players are in doubt.

“I hope it’s nothing and he can play on Tuesday but right now I can’t tell you.”

C.Ronaldowantshis son to followhislegacy

At the age of 31, Cristiano Ronaldo is not the same young and explosive player that he used to be some time ago. The Portuguese star continues to break records and score goals on a consistent basis but he is reaching a point in his career when it’s time to start thinking about what his plans are after stepping down from the playing ground.

C.Ronaldo has already stated he is planning to continue playing at a high level for 4 or 5 more years which means that the Portuguese attacker still has plenty of time to achieve his goal of scoring at least 500 more goals before hanging up his boots.

Earlier in September of 2015, Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 500th career goaland it was at that point when he revealed his intentions to score at least 500 more before retiring. C.Ronaldo also revealed details concerning his life after having retired and C.Ronaldo stated that he wants to ‘’live like a king’’ and not turn into a coach or have any big role in the world of football as the Portuguese just wants to settle down with his family and relax by having an ordinary life.

EventhoughC.Ronaldowants to stepawayfrom the world of football afterretiring and hedoes not wantto play such a big role in the sport, the star of Real Madrid seems to be destined in having a close relationship with football even after having retired as the Portuguese player has recently talked about his son as he stated that  Cristiano Jnr is good enough to be a professional football player and he wants his son tobecome a footballer.

Robin Van Persie put an end to all the rumours

Robin Van Persie put an end to all the rumours of his transfer from Fenerbahce by saying that he is fully dedicated to the Turkish club.

The reports suggested that the Chelsea management had got in touch with the Dutchman to try and land him in London.

But, according to Van Persie, there hasn’t been any offer from any club.

When Van Persie had made the move from Old Trafford to Fenerbahce, he was believed to be going to find himself as the top guy over there straightaway, but, it has not proved to be the case.

He has not started as frequently as he would have expected himself to and in whatever playing time he has had, he has only been ordinary to say the least.

A solitary strike in 7 matches in the Turkish League is not something that is expected from the player of that calibre.

So, considering his situation at Fenerbahce, it was thought that he would be willing to accept Chelsea’s offer as well if it indeed had been made to him.

But, all the talks were dismissed by the striker in an interview yesterday. Read more Robin Van Persie put an end to all the rumours
