Opinion: What if Cristiano Ronaldo wins the World Cup?

29 Mar 2018

know that it is a possibility that no one is considering because when Spain’s group at the World Cup is talked about – in which there is also Portugal, the reigning European champions – it is described as little more than a joke.

It was as though Cristiano had not shown that he can score two or three goals against anyone. But in Russia no, or at least what you hear is that it is a very, very remote possibility.

What is talked about is Messi, there has been no end to discussion this week about his non-appearance against Spain and that ‘football owes him a World Cup’ and that if he wins it then he will be the best footballer without discussion in the history of the game.

What would happen though if Cristiano wins it? If you can imagine Messi lifting the World Cup then you can also see Ronaldo doing it as well and it wouldn’t be a bad image either as he would have won all that was possible with his national team with a European Championship and a World Cup, he would pick up his sixth Ballon d’Or and he would have four or five Champions Leagues.

Sufficient to the best in history, no?
