“News published this Thursday reports that Cristiano Ronaldo threatened to quit the national team during a conversation with Fernando Santos, the national coach. The FPF specifies that at no time did the captain of the national team, Cristiano Ronaldo, threaten to leave the national team during the stay in Qatar. Cristiano Ronaldo builds a unique track record every day in the service of the national team and the country, which must be respected and which attests to an undeniable degree of commitment to the national team. /p>

Then, the FPF added: “In passing, the degree of commitment of the player most capped by Portugal has again been demonstrated – if necessary – in the victory against Switzerland, in the round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup. The national team – players, coaches and FPF structure – is, as it has been since day one , fully committed and enthusiastic in building what the country wants to be Portugal's best appearance at a World Cup.”

A proper update from of the FPF and the Seleção das Quinas. Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been at the center of several controversies in recent months, therefore did not want to leave the national team. The striker born in 1985 is in search of a new major title in Qatar. The Lusitanians will therefore count on him on Saturday to face Morocco in the quarter-finals and continue to dream bigger.
