Cristiano Ronaldo’s brace sent Portugal on their way to – after a late goal – a disappointing 3-2 win. Fans filled Arena 974 to cheer him on with the Portuguese team he led for a while. Anyway, mostly him.
There is perhaps no shirt that spreads more on the ball than Ronaldo’s No 7, and on Thursday, such a small number of shirts appeared to have gathered in a short deserted area between the port and the tourist center in Doha Global Terminal.
As much as anything, Portugal fans want to see what Ronaldo will do right away – maybe the last time. He is now 37 and is unexpectedly out of a job after ending his contract with Manchester United this month. The war left Ronaldo’s position and career in flux. But nothing can fix an image and destroy a legacy like the World Cup.
So, in the warm party of the room from the Arabian Bay, Ronaldo challenged Ghana, the team shot, he waved, the team thundered again, and the camera locked his face to the world of football turned his eyes to his side. . and everything seems normal again.
The ball in the game turned to Ronaldo, not the blue one. In addition, when a scoreless game needed an opener in the middle of the final game, it was Ronaldo, of course, who did the honors.
His addition shortly after the hour mark sent Portugal on their way to – after conceding a late goal – a disappointing 3-2 victory.
