Elisabete and Xavier, mother and son who live in Toronto, traveled 5,913 kilometers to the Algarve and couldn’t believe it when they saw Ronaldo receive the yellow card in Slovakia that ruled him out of tonight’s match .
The trip had been planned for a long time. The team was going to play in the Algarve in September, still during the school holidays, and little Xavier, who lives in the city of Toronto, in Canada, had only one wish: to come to Portugal and see his idol Cristiano Ronaldo in the game. against Luxembourg.
The mother, Elisabete, who emigrated to this North American country, accepted the request and booked trips and a hotel for three days in the Faro region. The puppy was going to realize his dream of seeing CR7 live and in color.
Until, with everything scored, it was the shock and a few tears that saw the referee of the Slovakia-Portugal match last Friday give a yellow card to the captain, the third in this qualification, which automatically puts him out of the duel with the Luxembourgers. .
They still hoped Cristiano would be at the stadium this Monday, even if he couldn’t play. The Al Nassr striker, however, stayed one night at the training camp, but after lunch on Sunday, he left the camp and returned home.
Xavier was even sadder and during a conversation with A BOLA he did not hide his disappointment, combined, however, with the desire to see another star of his adoration.
“Yes, I’m disappointed not to see Ronaldo. I love it. I really wanted to see it, it was my dream. But that’s it, I’m going to see the Portugal team and I also really like Bruno Fernandes,” he said in English. “It was really his dream,” his mother concluded.
