Cristiano Ronaldo believes that it is not the right time to discuss his international future following Portugal’s exit from the World Cup.
Portugal was edged out 2-1 by an Edinson Cavani-inspired Uruguay in Saturday evening’s last-16 tie at the Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi.
Cristiano Ronaldo will be 37 by the time of the next World Cup in Qatar four years from now, leaving many to believe that he has competed in the showpiece competition for a final time.
Asked if he is planning on walking away following the defeat to Uruguay, however, Ronaldo told reporters: “Now is not the time to talk about the future of players and coaches. We have a fantastic group, young and with a lot of ambition and for that reason, I think the team will remain strong.”
