The Portuguese fans refused the participation of captain Cristiano Ronaldo with his country in the 2022 World Cup, which will be held in the State of Qatar.
Portugal succeeded in qualifying for the round of 16 of the World Cup after leading Group G, to set a date with Switzerland, the runner-up of Group H.
And the Portuguese newspaper “Apolla” conducted an opinion poll on whether coach Fernando Santos should share Ronaldo in the starting line-up for the national team in the upcoming matches.
The newspaper indicated that about 70% of the fans do not want him to continue in the starting lineup of the national team, while 30% of the participants in the poll voted in favor of Ronaldo continuing with the starting lineup.
Despite the Portuguese fans’ rejection of Ronaldo’s participation in the World Cup starting line-up, the final decision is in the hands of coach Fernando Santos, who will decide the names and key elements in the coming hours to face Switzerland.
The newspaper highlighted Ronaldo’s snapshot during his substitution in the last meeting against South Korea in the group stage, and that his angry words seemed to be directed at coach Santos, but he made unconvincing statements that his words were against a Korean player.
