Cristiano Ronaldo tight-lipped on future after World Cup exit

France vs Argentina to kick-off FIFA World Cup 2018 Round of 16 check complete schedule

Suarez's running mate, Edinson Cavani, scored both goals in the knockout win over Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal but is nursing a hamstring injury, and it' unclear if he will play.

In his fourth World Cup, Ronaldo couldn't hide his frustration late in the match in Sochi, furiously complaining with the referee after a non-call for a foul that could have given Portugal a last chance to equalize. His goal against Morocco at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium also saw him become Europe's all-time top global scorer on 85 goals, one ahead of Hungarian legend Ferenc Puskas.

Against Morocco he achieved 100 percent success; a shot on goal, a goal and three points for Portugal, but, from then on, his effectiveness decreased.

He failed to breach Iran's gritty defence in a 1-1 draw where Portugal suffered some nervous stoppage-time minutes during which the Asian powerhouse could have eliminated them at the group stage. "How on earth can he think that is a penalty?"

"Organization of the world Cup I was pleasantly surprised". A World Cup title is the only thing missing from his collection of accolade.

They will play against France in Nizhny Novgorod on July 6. "He gives us confidence that we can win every match. We are just blessed to have him".

He makes it look easy, he has so many options, so as he gets older maybe if he loses half a step, it doesn't change how he plays. Asked if her wealth of Wimbledon experience was a key factor, Venus said: "I´d love to have that extra advantage".

There is a high probability that in the near future 33-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo to announce retirement in Portugal.

That is the view of former Manchester United defender Gary Neville, who says it would be a shame if Ronaldo and Lionel Messi aren't around for the next tournament.

"We must congratulate Uruguay because they are the national team that are in the quarter-final". "I'm sure that the national team will remain as one of the best in the world". "He is excellent", Figo once commented.

"Ronaldo is a leader, the way he scores the goals and how important they are", Forlan told BBC Radio 5 live. "In the second we were better, but we didn't make it", he explained. "I felt pain in my calf and could not continue on the field".

Before Figo's time Portural had never won the European Championships. He is emotionally well and let's see how his recovery goes.
