From The 2022 World Cup Final Disappointed To Be Eliminated, Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly has no intention of hanging up his boots from international football after Portugal was eliminated from the 2022 World Cup.
Cristiano Ronaldo arrives at the 2022 World cup final as captain of the Portugal team. The player who had recently been terminated by Manchester United was initially a mainstay and always started in the group phase.
However, once he entered the knockout phase, Cristiano Ronaldo was backed up by Fernando Santos. Interestingly, Portugal still performed well when CR7 was on the bench.
In the end, Portugal only reached the quarter-finals and lost 0-1 to Morocco. As soon as Fernando Santos’ team returned home, speculation arose that Cristiano Ronaldo would retire from international football.
Cristiano Ronaldo then responded to the issue. Through his Instagram account, CR7 admitted that he was deeply disappointed that his dream of bringing Portugal to win the 2022 World cup final had vanished.
However, Cristiano Ronaldo admits that he is reluctant to talk about speculation about his future. He invited the media to make conclusions about his future.
“Unfortunately, the dream is over. There is no point in reacting to the heat. I just want you all to know that a lot has been said. A lot has been written, a lot has been speculated, but my dedication to Portugal hasn’t changed for a moment,” said Cristiano.
“I have always fought for the same goal and I will never leave my team-mates and my country. For now, there isn’t much more to say. Thank you Portugal. Thank you Qatar. The dream is beautiful while it lasts. Now it’s time to be an adviser the good ones and let them draw their own conclusions.”
Now there is new speculation about the future of Cristiano Ronaldo . According to the CM Journal report , Ronaldo has no intention of retiring from international level.
He still wants to strengthen the Portuguese national team. Even Ronaldo is claimed to have informed his bosses at the Selecao about his intention.
The report also says Ronaldo hopes to appear at the upcoming Euro 2024. He wants to bring Portugal to win the title in the tournament for the second time.
Meanwhile, after Portugal were eliminated from the 2022 World cup final, the future of Fernando Santos has become unclear. There is news that his services will no longer be used by the Selecao.
The Portuguese football federation will reportedly sack Santos in the near future. However, a potential replacement is still being sought.
There is interesting news to listen to. The federation is reportedly targeting Jose Mourinho to replace Santos.
The French national team has a great chance of winning back to back titles at the World Cup. The condition is that in the Qatar 2022 World Cup final on Sunday (18/12/2022), Les Blues must be able to beat Argentina.
The French national team itself qualified for the final after defeating Morocco in the semifinals with a score of 2-0. Didier Deschamps’ men also made it to the final with a record of only losing once.
The defeat was obtained from Tunisia with a score of 0-1 in the final match of the Group D phase. Interestingly, the Argentine national team also has a record of losing once to the final. The difference is that the Argentina national team lost once in the first match of the group phase to Saudi Arabia.
Looking at the statistical site WhoScored, we have collected five French national team players with the best average performance per game. Who are they? Let’s scroll down to find out.
He is still 23 years old, but Kylian Mbappe has proven that he has even better abilities than Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi at the same age.
Mbappe has so far scored five goals and two assists during the 2022 World Cup. His role is very crucial for Le Blues.
Not surprisingly, the WhoScored site provides an average value for the performance of PSG players with this at 7.84.
At the press conference session attended by Bola.com, Antoine Griezmann was asked about still having zero goals at the 2022 World Cup.
At that time he replied that he really enjoyed his new role even though he played farther from the goal. Yes, even though he hasn’t scored a goal, Griezmann has proven to have a central role.
He recorded a total of three assists with a performance value of 7.63. He is almost always involved in goals for the French national team.
Like against Morocco, it was his figure that gave the bait to Mbappe, who then shot the ball from the former Monaco player and was grabbed by Theo Hernandez.
Confirmed his good performance with AC Milan in the French National Team. Occupying the left-back post, he is not only strong in defense, but also knows when to assist in the attacking phase.
The goal against Morocco is only a small example of the player’s slick performance. By Who Scored, he got a score of 7.42 during the 2022 World Cup.
The report card is quite decent because he recorded one goal and two assists during the tournament in Qatar.
Came to Qatar on reserve status with Karim Benzema. However, when Benzema had to go home due to injury, the figure of Olivier Giroud turned out to be the right replacement.
Now he has recorded four goals and is already better than his report card at the 2018 World Cup or when the French national team won.
This AC Milan striker got a score of 7.39 from Who Scored. Against Argentina, he even had the chance to add to his goal coffers and win top scorer status.
Even though he was absent in the match against Morocco, Adrien Rabiot still got a high score from Who Scored: 7.23.
Very reasonable, because the figure of this Juventus player in midfield is very crucial. He is the link between the back line and the front line.
His performance is so consistent and can be a lethal weapon in the final. Because he can fully rest when he meets Morocco.
It is reported that Karim Benzema could appear to defend France in the 2022 World Cup final against Argentina, Sunday (18/12/2022) evening WIB. However, coach Didier Deschamps was reluctant to respond to this issue.
France advanced to the World Cup final for the second time in a row. In the semifinals, Les Bleus beat Morocco 2-0 thanks to goals from Theo Hernandez and Kolo Muani.
Reports from Spain, Real Madrid have allowed Karim Benzema to fly to Qatar to join the French national team .
The 2022 Ballon d’Or winner is still listed as one of 26 French players, although in practice he was not brought to Qatar. Benzema then returned to Madrid for treatment.
Benzema picked up the injury days before the 2022 World Cup Final opener, but Deschamps has not ruled him out.
Mundo Deportivo claims that Benzema has the chance to appear in the match against Argentina.
“Karim Benzema is available for the game against Argentina in the 2022 World Cup final,” said a Barstool Football statement .
Deschamps was questioned by a journalist following his side’s semi-final win over Morocco.
“There were reports today that Karim Benzema could return to Qatar. First of all, is it true?” asked the reporter.
“And secondly, if so, is there any chance that you could use it for a few minutes if you need it?” he said again.
Deschamps closed his eyes and took a deep breath after listening to the translated question.
He finally replied, “I don’t really want to answer that question. Next question. I’m sorry.”
The Argentina national team will face France in the 2022 World Cup final match at Lusail Stadium, Lusail, Sunday (18/12/2022) early morning WIB. Following this duel, Team Tango was reminded not only to be wary of Kylian Mbappe.
France is confirmed to be the opponent of the Argentina national team in the 2022 World Cup final after winning 2-0 over Morocco in the semifinals at Al Bayt Stadium, Thursday (15/12/2022) early morning WIB.
The day before, it was Argentina who made sure to step into the top party of the 2022 World Cup. La Albiceleste got rid of Croatia with a landslide score of 3-0.
For the Argentina national team , the spotlight in the Cup Final will be on Kylian Mbappe. Together with Lionel Messi, Mbappe is at the top of the 2022 World Cup Final top scorer list with five goals.
Mbappe will obviously be a big threat to the Argentina national team . However, according to the former Ivory Coast national team striker, Didier Drogba, there are still other French players who also need attention from Lionel Scaloni’s troops.
“Argentina must be wary of Mbappe? Yes, of course, but France also has Griezmann, Tchouameni and Dembele,” Drogba said as reported by Sportskeeda.
Drogba also believes that Argentina will play aggressively to dampen France’s game in the 2022 World Cup final.
“Argentina will know that French teams don’t like to take a lot of punches. Argentina are really aggressive and they are not going to let Kylian Mbappe face the game,” he said.
“They will try and block him because they know he is a major player. It will be difficult for them to deal with Tchouameni, Griezmann and even Dembele.”
