The Real Ronaldo says farewell with a cameo and a couple of misses
Tchau, big man
We said our goodbyes to The Real Ronaldo a few months ago when he officially announced he would be calling an end to his jaw-droppingly brilliant career.
The Brazil football team decided to wait a little while though and give him a 15 minute cameo in their friendly game against Romania last night.
He may be overweight and may have missed some pretty easy (by his standards) chances, but he did it all with a smile on his face and a samba beat in his heart.
The sitters come after about 2.40ish (a hearty ‘ta’ to DT for the video heads-up), but we don’t want to leave things on a sour note.
So, after the jump, you’ll find a couple of videos that show why Ronaldo was one of the best players The Spoiler has ever seen and why he inspired us to run out and spend our savings on a Brazil shirt during France 1998.
The World Cup Goals…
