Ronaldo shuts down international retirement talk as Portugal captain eyes Euro 2024

0

The
veteran
attacker
has
struggled
for
form
this
season
at
club
level
with
Manchester
United,
dropped
by
Erik
ten
Hag
and
mostly
kept
on
the
sidelines
by
a
positive
upturn
in
results.

But
his
place
in
Fernando
Santos’ Portugal
squad
has
never
been
in
doubt,
with
the
37-year-old
leading
his
country
in
their
Nations
League
matches
with
the
Czech
Republic
and
Spain
this
week.

Speaking
at
the
Quinas
de
Ouro
awards,
where
he
was
feted,
Ronaldo
revealed
his
ambitions
to
remain
with
the
national
set-up
for
another
major
tournament
cycle,
taking
him
through
to
the
age
of
39.

“I
hope
to
be
a
part
of
the
national
team
for
a
few
more
years,”
he
stated.
“I
still
have
the
motivation,
and
my
ambition
is
high.

“My
path
here
is
not
over.
We
have
many
quality
youngsters.
I
will
be
at
the
World
Cup,
and
I
want
to
be
at
the
European
Championship,
too.

“It
has
been
a
long
road
and
I
want
to
take
the
opportunity
to
say
that
the
road
is
not
over
yet.
You’ll
still
have
to
put
up
with
me
for
a
little
while
longer!”

Ronaldo’s
only
major
honour
at
international
level
came
at
Euro
2016,
albeit
he
missed
most
of
the
final
victory
over
France
following
an
injury.

Portugal
will
hope
for
a
successful
tournament
in
Qatar,
where
they
are
the
top-seeded
nation
in
Group
H,
alongside
Uruguay,
South
Korea
and
Ghana.
