Ronaldo To Skip Next Portugal Match After Birth Of Two Sons

Cristiano Ronaldo To Skip Next Portugal Match After Birth Of Two Sons

By Kurt Buckerfield - Jun 29, 2017 07:23 AM @KurtLaduma

Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has confirmed he will miss Portugal's third and fourth place play-off match at the FIFA Confederations Cup due to the birth of his two sons.

Real President: Ronaldo Is Angry

It was reported in May that the 32-year-old was expecting twins via a surrogate mother, and they were born during the Confederations Cup this month.

Portugal were knocked out by Chile on penalties in the semi-final on Wednesday night, and after the match, Ronaldo confirmed he will miss the third and fourth place play-off to spend time with his two new boys.

"I was in the service of the national team, as always, body and soul, even though my two sons were born," he wrote on his official Facebook page.

"Unfortunately, we have not been able to achieve the main sporting objective that we wanted, but I am sure we will continue to give joy to the Portuguese.

"The president of the Portuguese Football Federation and the national team have today had an attitude that has touched me and I will not forget.

"I'm very happy to finally be with my children for the first time."

Five Players Heavily Linked With Man Utd

Portugal lost the penalty shootout 3-0 following a 0-0 scoreline by the end of extra-time, with Nani, Ricardo Quaresma and Joao Moutinho missing from the spot.

Do you think Ronaldo should have stepped up earlier to take a penalty? Let us know in the comments section below.

It's funny how Ronaldo fans are hiding their frustrations behind Messi's downfalls. STOP CATCHING FEELINGS!!! Argentina and Portugal are two different football nations, totally different teams.. Ronaldo and Messi don't play alone so stop comparing the incomparable

@lulikho, how many times must we shine the light on your faces cry7 blind followers. Both the first and the last penalties are difficult to take but when you see your team is in a situation were "saving the best for last" won't exist, you show up instead of hiding.

@lulikho, you are talking after he showed enough courage as a true soldier and took the fatal step for his country. When a soldier points a gun to himself after his army's defeat at the hands of the enemy it's not an act of cowardness....it's called pride.
