Ronaldo Walks Down Tunnel In Tears As Portugal Clashed Out Of World Cup With Loss To Morocco

Cristiano Ronaldo was in tears as he walked down the tunnel following Portugal's World Cup quarter-final defeat to Morocco on Saturday.
  • Portugal is out of the World Cup
  • Ronaldo shed tears as he walked down the tunnel
  • Likely his last World Cup appearance

WHAT HAPPENED?

Youssef En-Nesyri's first-half goal was enough to give Morocco a 1-0 win and make them the first African nation to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup. Ronaldo, who came on as a substitute in the second half, was unable to do anything to bring the home team back into the game and was left unattended as he walked down the tunnel.

THE BIGGER PICTURE:

At the age of 37, this is likely to be Ronaldo's last match at a World Cup final. The striker has now made 196 appearances for Portugal, making him the best player in men's international matches.

WHAT NEXT FOR RONALDO?

Ronaldo will be looking to settle his club career, having left Manchester United by mutual consent on the eve of the World Cup. He is expected to sign a major contract with Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr.
