Cristiano Ronaldo wants Portugal to rebound quickly after the stunning loss that kept the team from securing a spot at next years World Cup.
Playing at home and needing only a draw to clinch a berth in the tournament in Qatar.
Portugal conceded in the 90th minute in Sunday’s 2-1 loss to Serbia and was relegated to playoff that will be held next year with 11 other nations.
”Football has shown us time and time again that sometimes the most difficult paths are the ones that lead us to the most desired outcomes,” Ronaldo said on Instagram on Monday.
The 36-years-old veteran could be facing his last World Cup after making four straight appearances in the tournament since 2006.
