Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo, has flared up at rumours that he could be getting to the end of his international career.
The 37-year-old spoke at a news conference on Monday, ahead of his team’s playoff final against North Macedonia tomorrow in Porto.
The winner of the game will be at the 2022 World Cup.
When asked if this will be his last World Cup should Portugal qualify, Ronaldo said: “I’m starting to be asked the same question. The one who is going to decide my future is me, nobody else.
“If I feel like playing more, I’ll play, if I don’t feel like playing more, I won’t. I’ll decide, period.”
Euro 2016 winners Portugal have qualified for the last five World Cup finals, while North Macedonia’s first major tournament in their 27-year history was last year’s Euro 2020.
