Cristiano Ronaldo breaks down in tears as Portugal pull out of 2022 World Cup with loss to Morocco

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner squandered a glorious late chance to force extra time as Morocco cruised to a famous 1-0 win to reach the semi-finals.

And after his World Cup dream came to an end, a heartbroken Ronaldo burst into tears after the full-time whistle at the Al Thumama Stadium.

Ronaldo started on the bench against Morocco but, with Portugal trailing in the second half, he equaled the world record for most international appearances in men’s football.

The 37-year-old was making his 196th appearance for Portugal and had a wonderful chance to force extra time in stoppage time when he was netted on goal.

But his tame effort was saved by Moroccan goalkeeper Yassine Bounou and Portugal crashed out.

Youssef En-Nesyri scored the winner as Morocco became the first African nation to reach a World Cup semi-final.

At the full-time whistle, Ronaldo descended directly into the tunnel and the cameras showed him in floods of tears.

Portugal’s defeat in what looks to be Ronaldo’s final World Cup will likely end his hopes of winning football’s biggest prize.

It also means he will likely end his career without scoring in a World Cup knockout game.
