    Loves his country, his is everything that is correct about international football, where as Spain have a Brazilian playing up front.

    "Adopting" a country will see football go like rugger where people appear to pick and choose which country they represent regardless of their heritage.

    Ronaldo v Spain.
    I really can't be doing with the ego that is Ronaldo but by eck, does he back it up. Respect.

    Can he do a Maradonna '86? I doubt it, but maybe, just maybe.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Aye, he's the nearest thing Portugal can get to Gareth Bale.

    He was injured for the last four qualifiers, it may have been a different outcome if Gareth had played.

    Iceland are just like watching Stoke City, five defenders, four midfielders who used used to be defenders set up in two lines of muscle and a guy who does enormous throw-ins, they are unbelievably tedious to watch!

    I don't think that they will be caring very much at this point.

    He lives in Madrid. The England team live in places like Liverpool and Manchester.

    I know where I would prefer to be.

    Looks much the same as any other Peru shirt.
    I'd ask the film clothing person.
