World Cup 2014: Cristiano Ronaldo is Fighting Fit

World Cup 2014: Cristiano Ronaldo is Fighting Fit

The football player, Cristiano Ronaldo is fighting fit. He may just take Portugal to gain a victory against the German team.

He has been said to be the greatest player in the world by none other than the legendary Pele. Cristiano Ronaldo arrived late as usual at a press conference recently.

But it was here that he told the news reporters that he intended to give it his 100% and lead the Portuguese team to a stupendous triumph over Germany. But he was also a reluctant champion. 

He said that although he will give it his all, one player was not enough to lead a nation to win the FIFA World Cup. Rather it was teamwork that counted in the end. Behind the creation of anything lay cooperation. 

“I would like to be 110% fit but I am 100% fit and that should be enough to help the national team,” the Portugal captain Ronaldo said. “I am here to help, I believe I can make a difference, but one player is not a team. I cannot carry the national side on my own.”

Ronaldo’s star has been on the rise in recent times and he has outshone several other players to become the best asset in Portugal’s arsenal. 

"I have been practicing for a few days, which I couldn't do if I was injured," said Ronaldo."Obviously, I would like to play without pain, but in my entire career I have always had injuries and knocks to deal with, but I am ready to play."

The Portuguese coach, Paulo Bento, meanwhile has told his countrymen that just because they have the world’s best player in their midst does not mean that they will automatically win the World Cup. 

It just increases the chances by an infinitesimal amount and that might just be the edge they need to topple the results in their favor. 

“Having the best player in the world in our squad does not make it mandatory for us to win the World Cup,” said Portugal’s coach. “I have said this before to the people of Portugal. There have been times when we have had the world’s best player and not even qualified for the World Cup.”

Several times before, Portugal has had the best of players and not even been invited to join the ranks of the World Cup. So it would be best not to set one’s hopes too high. 

Currently, Ronaldo rules in Portugal. He is their chief asset and national treasure. And the slightest injury he incurs sends the people into paroxysms of worry and anxiety. 

The fact of the matter is that this is all a little too obsessive-compulsive in its nature. It almost seems that it is Ronaldo that appears at the matches and the Portuguese team is tied to his apron strings. 

"The press say whatever they want, I have been playing at a high level for years and I am used to those unhappy statements," Cristiano Ronaldo said. "The media often just throw things up in the air and try to hit something."

"The most important thing is the health of the player and if there is any problem during the game, I will tell my coach. I am not willing to risk my career on one game, if I am not fit, I won't play."

Portugal is too dependent on him and the result is that he is #1 and simply indispensable. There are a few concerns over his health status too. 

While Ronaldo is a fighter in the field, he has a knee injury as well as a muscular problem in his thigh. Thus although he will be able to perform in many future World Cups, he is liable to be less efficient in his actions as time moves on. 

"I don't think I have to show anyone anything. If you look at my statistics and resume you'll see that," he said when asked if his World Cup record was the only blot on his stunning CV," said Ronaldo.  "I have no words for that question, I just have to continue my career, which has been great so far."

"We have to be realistic (at the World Cup), we aren't favourites and, in theory, there are teams stronger than ours.  We must be humble and accept this will be a difficult tournament, but we will face one of the favourites and we have the chance to try and win."

Spanish and other football players have positive views about Cristiano Ronaldo.

“Portugal depend a lot on Ronaldo,” Figo said, a little unnecessarily. “He is the No1.”

“Messi comes from behind like I used to do,” Pelé said. “Ronaldo is more important because he is the player who scores goals from the front.”

 

“In the six years we had him at Manchester United you saw his game grow all the time,” Ferguson said. “Now you see the complete player.”

“He is an exhibitionist,” the former England defender said. “His ego is gargantuan.”
