De Ligt: Ronaldo Asked Me If I Would Join Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo

But after sitting out the group stage of the Nations League on a hiatus from worldwide football, Ronaldo played a huge part in getting his country to the final by scoring a hat-trick in Wednesday's semi-final against Switzerland.

Guedes started the build-up to the goal with a pass to Bernardo Silva, receiving the ball back at the top of the area and firing a firm low shot past Dutch goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen, who touched the ball but couldn't parry it away.

Guedes, 22, nutmegged an opponent, exchanged passes with player of the tournament Bernando Silva and then beat goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen with a shot from the edge of the area on the hour for his fourth worldwide goal in 17 appearances.

But the Dutchman only won the Champions League and failed to lead his country to UEFA Nations League glory against Ronaldo's Portugal.

The first match of the Portuguese-hosted 2019 Nations League Finals appeared headed for extra time, but Ronaldo took over down the stretch.

She said the "unprecedented" police operations were "clearly created to intimidate". The raids have sparked outrage from journalists and watchdog groups.

"I'm looking forward to playing this final with this team, and we're going to give everything that we can to hopefully hold that trophy in the end and do everyone proud", he said.

Perhaps the 19-year old sees PSG as the best destination for his footballing development, but it would be disappointing to see a young player of his prodigious talent pick his next club exclusively from a financial standpoint. 'Maybe the long season finally caught up with the players.

There are young players, players who over the years will become more mature and better. "I will let it happen, and then I will see". Now we need more at the front, with more creativity'.

"Obviously we wanted to win, that's the main thing", he said.

Since reaching an age that most footballers are considered as past their peak, Ronaldo has won three Champions Leagues, La Liga, Serie A, Spanish and Italian Super Cups, two Club World Cups, the Nations League, Euro 2016 and the UEFA Super Cup. Hopefully we can get to the semi-finals and final and the fans can play a huge part.
