Euro 2024:Ronaldo wants to feature at the 2026 FIFA World Cup

Football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo intends to continue playing for the Portuguese national team and feature in the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

Ronaldo spoke out for the first time after Portugal's heartbreaking exit from Euro 2024.

Roberto Martinez's side crashed out in the quarter-finals on Friday after a 5-3 loss to France on penalties following a drab 0-0 draw.

Ronaldo, 39, took to social media and insisted the team as well as the fans "deserved more" from this year's tournament.

The Manchester United legend also paid tribute to the supporters and the way they stood by the team in Germany.

The Al-Nassr superstar hinted he will be part of the national team that will challenge for the 2026 World Cup despite his advanced age.

Ronaldo posted: "We wanted more. We deserved more. For us. For each one of you. For Portugal.

"We are grateful for everything you have given us and for everything we have achieved so far.

"On and off the field, I am sure that this legacy will be honored and will continue to be built. Together."

Ronaldo failed to score a single goal during this year's European championship.

The star forward only managed to hit the back of the net during Portugal's last two penalty shoot-outs against Slovenia and of course France.

However, Atletico Madrid ace Joao Felix missed from the spot in Hamburg.

And Porto star Diogo Costa couldn't replicate his penalty heroics against Slovenia this time around as France scored all of their shots.

Fans convinced Ronaldo made a major mistake before the penalty shootout that could have cost Portugal vs France

Ousmane Dembele, Youssouf Fofana, Jules Kounde, Bradley Barcola, and Theo Hernandez were all on target.
