Cristiano Ronaldo could be and would be giving a plus-ultra performance in the Qatar 2022 World Cup. The World Cup provides Ronaldo with a cradling opportunity, and probably the last, to beat public opinion in his favor and possibly catch the eye of potential clubs who could sign him in the January window.

The Portuguese footballer is set to become the first-ever male player to score at five different World Cups. This is a marvelous feat considering that most footballers do not even get the chance to play their fourth.

Ronaldo chose a very calculated timing for the release of his bombshell interview with British Journalist Piers Morgan, where he dropped exclusive insights about the know-how of the red devils and his own treatment within by the manager Erik ten Hag and his superiors.

The interview was timed exactly at the edge of the breaking point in domestic football paving the way for the 37-year-old Ronaldo to head out to join his national team, Portugal, and progress their World Cup preparations.

So far this season, Cristiano has had the rotten luck to bag only three goals and two assists for his team, which is a big shocker considering that we are discussing the highest scorer in international football. These numbers conclusively portray how his time with the red devils has reached the epilogue.

This is exactly why the World Cup provides a tremendous possibility for the Portuguese to shoot back at the critics and reinstall his footing as the greatest of all time. The tournament also provides him with open doors to brand-new teams for his future endeavors.

Earlier this week when Cristiano pulled his trigger toward the United-legend Wayne Rooney, a discourse comparing the both came to our minds about the fact that 32-year-old Rooney was left out of England’ squad for the 2018 World Cup, while the 37-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo is still the first name uttered for selection in Portugal’s squad for the 2022 World Cup.

“You can’t have someone like him in your team as a bench player,” said former Portuguese teammate, Pedro Mendes.

The World Cup might give Ronaldo the happy ending he deserves.
