Ronaldo’s Portugal at risk of missing Qatar 2022 World Cup

Football legend, Ronaldo may be a glaring absentee when the Qatar 2022 World Cup kicks off next year November.

Portugal suffered late frustration as they lost 2-1 to Serbia in their final qualifier.

Thus, they have missed out on automatic qualification in dramatic circumstances as Serbia scored a late winner to prevail 2-1 and book their place in Qatar instead.

Just as it is with his club, Manchester United, there have been much criticism of Cristiano Ronaldo’s display on social media.

Going into the game, Portugal knew that if they avoided defeat then they would qualify.

However, despite taking the lead through Renato Sanches, a goal from Dusan Tadic pulled Serbia level before substitute Aleksandar Mitrovic got the winner in the dying moments.

Portugal still have an opportunity to qualify, but it was a hugely frustrating night for Fernando Santos’ side, especially with Cristiano Ronaldo struggling to make much of an impact.

Much of the reaction on social media focused on Ronaldo’s disappointing performance and the fact that Portugal failed to top a group which many people expected they would win. (Sportsvillagesquare)
