Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed that he is desperate to pick up a World Cup winners medal in Brazil later this year.
The recently crowned Ballon d’Or winner was instrumental in leading Portugal to the World Cup via a play-off against Sweden, and scored all his country’s goals in the 4-2 aggregate win.
The 28 year old admitted that it is his dream to lead the Portuguese national team to a first ever World Cup win.
"Winning the World Cup with Portugal is my dream – without wanting to take any merit away from other trophies," Ronaldo told reporters.
"We know that winning the World Cup is a difficult challenge, as every nation wants to win it but we will give our best to do it."
The Real Madrid talisman, whose contract at the club expires in June 2018, then went on to stress that even though he has won a handful of titles, the former Manchester United star was not thinking about retiring anytime soon.
"This is my life, my profession, my passion. I want to continue playing for many more years to come. I am still young," he continued.
"I am extremely happy and only wish to continue reaping more successes, both individual and collective, until the end of my career."
