Ronaldo on Retirement : Football great Cristiano Ronaldo has set out the condition that will see him end his 20-year professional football career in his wide-ranging controversial interview with Piers Morgan.

Cristiano Ronaldo reacted as follows :
“If that happens, I’ll finish my career immediately, I promise. It’s too good a scenario… I don’t even want to think about it. It could even be the goalkeeper to score, I wouldn’t mind, if I’m world champion I’m the happiest man on the planet. If that happens, I can say that I finish my career», said the Portuguese between several laughs.
Portugal are in World Cup Group H alongside Ghana , South Korea and Uruguay.
