Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo is missing from the list released to play the qualifiers for the coming World Cup billed for Russia in 2018.

Portugal will need to get past Gibraltar and Switzerland to have a chance at the World Cup, and Ronaldo would be missing. He picked up the injury during the final of the Euro 2016 after he was roughly tackled. He had to be substituted, but remained active supporting his mates to the title win.

The 31-year old was reported to only have just started training with Real Madrid last week, hence his missing name in the list of players for the World Cup qualifiers. Coach Fernando Santos dropped two other top names from his list as he deemed they were not active enough to get an invitation. He dropped Wolfsburg defender Vierinha and former Chelsea defender Ricardo Carvalho – who is unattached.

Another difference to the Euro 2016 title winning squad is the addition of two players. Valencia defender Joao Cancelo and Porto striker Andre Silva have received their first invitation to the national team. Monaco attacker Bernardo Silva also returned to the set-up after missing Euro 2016.
“The clubs are only just starting their championships and this is an unusual phase of the season. My choice was to maintain the base of the final stages of the European championship, apart from the ones who are medically not in shape,” Santos disclosed. (more…)

Italian giant Inter Milan are keen on landing Edison Cavani from French champions Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

The club is reported by Daily Mail to have submitted a bid of £42 million for the PSG forward. The reports claim that the bid submission has been confirmed by the Italian press, no matter how unlikely the move is as the French club already released Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Corriere dello Sport say Inter Milan met with the management of PSG in the past week after they played their International Champions Cup game. Inter Milan are hoping to sell their star forward Mauro Icardi to Napoli who sold their star forward to Juventus for a record breaking fee. Inter believes that Napoli would be easily be able to afford their price tag for Icardi, which they will use to fund their deal with PSG for Edison Cavani.

Cavani, 29, was on display when PSG defeated Inter Milan 3-1 at the International Champions Cup. Cavani joined PSG in 2013 for £54 million and is seen as Inter Milan as one of the few reliable forwards that can exceed Icardi who scored 16 goals in the last Serie A term. (more…)

Ronaldo Comes In Comparison With Messi

If you compare Cristiano Ronaldo with anyone it would probably be Lionel Messi.

With the recent announcement of Messi retiring from an international career, there is much debate and discussions doing the rounds about Messi and Ronaldo. Their images on and off the field are often compared to be polar opposites, akin to batman and joker. It is, however, irrefutable that both players are the best international players in the football arena.

Ronaldo is known to have a character that often shows itself in unique ways to opposing teams on the field. For instance, when Portugal was playing against Iceland, there were certain comments made by him that were debatable and got the rumor mills moving at the beginning of euro 2016. Ronaldo is definitely a star on the field, but age is creeping in as well. (more…)

Cristiano Ronaldo delighted with win at Barcelona

Cristiano Ronaldo is definitely delighted with the win at the home of bitter rival Barcelona. A picture of him in underwear together with his teammates was posted on Instagram by Gareth Bale.

The photo shows an exciting Real Madrid team which was clearly pleased with the way they beat Barcelona and their potent attack. Indeed, Madrid has shown that they have now become the team that can expose Barcelona weakness and beat them whenever they want. This has been the case ever since Jose Mourinho was the manager and he was the first one to find effectively a way to stop the tiki-taka football.

After the victory, Bale has declared that he still believes that they can still win the title but for this they will need to stay positive and stay united. They will need to replicate the kind of performance that they have demonstrated at the Nou Camp in the remaining matches of the season if they want to stand a chance of lifting the title.

The match did not start well for Real Madrid with Gerard Pique opening the scoring for the league leaders in the 56th minute but six minutes later Real Madrid drew lever with Karim Benzema. (more…)

Another high profile player that David Beckham wants to lure to his American outfit is Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo. It’s believed that a 2 year long contract offer is what Beckham is prepared to offer the Portuguese superstar but contrary to Ibrahimovic who has already revealed his desire to actually join Beckham’s MLS team, Cristiano Ronaldo still hasn’t officially replied to the job offer of David Beckham.
