I’d Be A Hypocrite If I’m Happy That Messi Wins World Cup – Ronaldo

Ronaldo Nazario, a Brazilian football legend, has admitted he would be a “hypocrite” if he said he wanted Lionel Messi to win the World Cup with Argentina. Croatia eliminated Brazil from the tournament in Qatar in the quarter-finals.

 

On the same day, they saw their South American rivals Argentina defeat the Netherlands on penalties to advance to the last four.

Many Brazilians were hoping that Croatia would deny La Albiceleste the chance to win the World Cup for the first time since 1986. Unfortunately for them, their competitors breezed through.

“I cannot answer for the whole of Brazil. I can only answer for me. And I am not that sure! Yeah, of course, I will be happy for him (Messi).

“But, you know, we have a great rivalry between Brazil and Argentina. But I will not be that much of a hypocrite to say I will be happy for Argentina because it’s not true,” Ronaldo said.
