The FIFA World Cup 2022 is over for Portugal when they are eliminated in the quarterfinals by Morocco. Portugal attempted to score early but was only successful in producing half-chances since they were mindful of Morocco’s strong defensive position. Morocco unexpectedly startled Portugal when they seized the lead in the 42nd minute thanks to a stunning header from En-Nesyri. One of the causes of the goal conceded was Diego Costa’s poorly timed appearance. Cristiano Ronaldo, who sat on the bench for the first half, entered the game as a replacement for the second, but he had little effect.

Following Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo gets knockout from what probably could be his last World Cup as he approaches the twilight of his career at the age of 37. Ronaldo heads to an uncertain home with his contract at Manchester United being terminated. With the WC exit, uncertainty looms over the future of Cristiano Ronaldo as the expected Messi v Ronaldo debate for the ‘best player of the world’ was to be settled by this WC.

Now with this exit, Messi with Argentina stands the chance to establish himself with the title of the ‘best player of the world’ by potentially winning this World Cup.

This seems to be the end of an era in European football with three legends of the game, Messi, Ronaldo, and Neymar, potentially playing their last World Cups.
