Confed Cup: Cristiano Ronaldo Exits Match To Meet Newborn Twins

18994

Portugal’s superstar captain Cristiano Ronaldo revealed Thursday he will not play in the Confederations Cup third-place match this weekend as he will finally meet his newborn twin boys.

Hours after Wednesday’s 3-0 defeat to Chile in a penalty shoot-out in Kazan, Ronaldo said he had been given permission to miss the play-off in Moscow, against either Germany or Mexico, to meet his new arrivals.

Ronaldo, 32, is believed to have fathered the twins with a surrogate mother in the United States and already has a seven-year-old son, Cristiano Ronaldo Jnr, from a previous relationship.

The Real Madrid forward says he gave his “body and soul” for Portugal in the semifinal, which finished goalless after extra time, “even though my two sons were born”.

“The President of the Portuguese Football Federation and the national coach have an attitude that has touched me and I will not forget,” the four-time world player of the year wrote on his official Facebook page.

“I’m very happy to finally be with my children for the first time.”

Having won man-of-the-match awards in each of Portugal’s three Confederations Cup group stage games, Ronaldo did not have his best match against Chile, whose defence managed to subdue the Real star.

As well as meeting his newborn babies, Ronaldo faces an uncertain future having threatened to quit Spain as he faces allegations of tax evasion in a court in Madrid next month.
