The World Cup is about winners – and have we been given a treat over the quarter final phase. Upsets and great goals…
But take a look at how the losers accept their fate.
Pictures of the fans distraught, players sprawled out on the pitch in the ultimate position of the vanquished – flat on their backs, curled up in almost fœtal positions, no, no, no not this time, not us… Then there’s Cristiano Ronaldo. On Portugal’s exit from the World Cup, the megastar of world soccer is tracked by a tv camera.
The same Cristiano Ronaldo who always looks up at the big screen to check out his big close up…
The same Cristiano Ronaldo who is plastered over adverts ….
Why was he so shocked and outraged to find a tv camera looking for his reaction ?
Why wouldn’t the monster that pays him on one side not be there looking for the reaction to his and Portugal’s exit from the World Cup ?
