Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo won the FIFA Ballon d’Or award earlier this month. Now he is eyeing one more piece of hardware for his trophy case, a World Cup trophy.
“It would be a dream come true,” Ronaldo said in comments published on Madrid’s official website. “I do not want to downplay the titles I have won up until now, like this honor or the Ballon d’Or, but it would be a dream come true. We know that it is very hard and that we have to keep our feet on the ground. We will try to do our best and take it one step at a time.”
Ronaldo has won a lot of titles over his career in his professional career with Manchester United and Real Madrid, but the World Cup has eluded him.
“I will carry on working as hard as possible to carry on representing Portugal abroad. This is an important honor for me because I am Portuguese and representing Portugal abroad is a privilege and a source of pride.”
“This motivates me even more,” he said. “I will carry on working hard to win more trophies in my career. I am young and I will carry on playing to enjoy myself like I have up until now. Obviously, if I win titles and I manage to make a good entry in the history books in the world of football, all the better.”
