Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo has expressed disappointment with their ouster from the World Cup after a 2-1 loss to Uruguay on Saturday night.
The 33-year-old five-time Ballon D’Or said the team played a good game and deserved more than what they got.
In his post-match interview, Ronaldo said, “We must congratulate Uruguay because they are the national team that are in the quarterfinals.
“I think we played a good game and maybe we deserved more, but in football the ones that score the most goals win and they scored two, so congratulations.
“We leave with our heads held high. As the captain of Portugal I know how hard we have worked and we must be proud of the team.
“And I also want to congratulate the organisation of this World Cup, it has been fantastic in every way; the organisation, the security, the atmosphere is perfect and it must be said.
“We go with our heads held high and we are sure that this team will continue to win things.”
When he was asked about his future with the national team, he had this to say, “It’s not the time to talk about the future, when it comes to the players and coach.
“This team will continue to be one of the best in the world, with quality players, a young group, united. I am confident and happy because this team will always fight with all their strength.”
