Cristiano Ronaldo has been pictured in tears ahead of Portugal's FIFA World Cup opening clash against Ghana on November 24. While the Selecao were belting out their national anthem before the start of the match, the TV cameras panned to the forward, who was very emotional at the time.
Portugal's captain, who has become one of the select few to partake in five FIFA World Cups, was in tears, as pictured in the tweet below:
He was on the verge of tears when he joined his team in singing their national anthem. He then shook off his emotions to focus on the game against Ghana.
This will likely be Ronaldo's last FIFA World Cup, as the 37-year-old is nearing the end of his career. It has not helped that he is one of the only two free agents playing in Qatar, following his contract termination from Manchester United.
However, the Portuguese captain will want to focus on the rigors of the FIFA World Cup and push for an impressive showing to lead his team to great heights. The last time Portugal snagged a trophy was in 2016 when they beat France in the final.
