Ahead of The FIFA World Cup clash between Argentina and France, Cristiano Ronaldo has appeared with no intention of giving up his international obligations. And with the Portuguese star unwilling to give up, it sends a message to Lionel Messi. After all, this tournament in Qatar may not be the last time we see the 37-year-old at a major tournament. 

He started each of his country’s group-stage matches in Qatar, contributing directly to just one goal. Ronaldo was then brought on from the bench in the round of 16 when his replacement. Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos scored a hat-trick against Switzerland in a frenetic 6-1 win.

The former Manchester United striker was once again overlooked in the next round as Portugal faced Morocco. Ronaldo started in the second half of the match against the Atlas Lions but he was unable to salvage his country’s semi-final hopes.

 When Portugal were out of the World Cup, many believed that the Portuguese star would give up international duty. But, wishing to avenge the sadness of his country, it seems that Ronaldo has no intention of hanging up his boots.

French Players Likely to miss the World Cup Final:

French players Raphael Varane, Ibrahima Konaté and Kingsley Coman missed training on Friday. All three players have cold symptoms two days before the World Cup final against Argentina, a source close to the team said. 

Raphaël Varane has won 15 of the 17 finals he has played in his career, an 88% success rate
Raphaël Varane has won 15 of the 17 finals he has played in his career, with an 88% success rate.

 Coman, the Bayern Munich winger, is likely to miss a training session due to “mild viral syndrome”, the French Football Federation said. Coman was an unused substitute in Wednesday’s 2-0 semi-final win over Morocco.

 The condition of Varane and Konaté will further worry France coach Didier Deschamps as they form a central defensive partnership against Morocco.

 Konaté replaced Dayot Upamecano in defence in the semi-final after being eliminated due to illness.  Adrien Rabiot, who played a key role in France’s midfield in Qatar, was also absent due to illness in the semi-final.
