Evergreen Ronaldo chases World Cup dream

·1-min read

Approaching his 36th birthday in February, Cristiano Ronaldo has no intention of slowing down, and says winning the FIFA World Cup with Portugal remains a big ambition.

"I still feel good, sharp and in a good moment in my life," the Juventus and Portugal star said in a video interview.

"I hope to play many, many years more, but you never know."

The forward still has another full season on his contract at Juventus, and will not be considering retirement when it expires in 2022.

"If you feel motivated, it doesn't matter. Cristiano now is good," he said.

"When I speak with the young boys, I'm always giving advice to them.

"I say, 'Enjoy the moment because we never know what's going to happen tomorrow. Something can happen in your life with your family'."

Having won numerous domestic and European titles during a career that has taken in Sporting Lisbon, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus, and the European Championship with Portugal in 2016, the FIFA World Cup is the only major prize to elude him.

"We have to have the steps under the ground because we won (in) 2016 and now we want to win the World Cup," Ronaldo said.

"Everything is possible, but you have to be realistic as well.

"I win (titles with) every club that I've played with," Ronaldo said.

"But (the) World Cup, it's a dream."
