Ronaldo is one of the top footballers in the world today, rivaled only by the likes of Messi and Neymar. However, he’s also a rather seasoned player, having played in his national team and the world-class club Real Madrid for many years.
His career as the player of Portugal national football team started way back in 2003 and he has played around 150 international matches since, scoring almost 100 goals.
Similarly, he’s been a member of Real Madrid for almost 10 years now and is the most valued player of one of the world’s most popular football clubs to this day.
However, Ronaldo is now 33 years old and will probably end his career as a professional footballer fairly soon. This suggests that FIFA World Cup 2018 is going to be the last such tournament for him.
Ronaldo World Cup 2018 Odds
Having won UEFA Euro cup just two years ago, Ronaldo would love nothing more than to win the World Cup trophy as well, before the end of his career. That would also be the very first victory in the World Cup for Portugal, making this achievement ever more important and dear.
What are Ronaldo World Cup odds though? Can he actually work with his team well enough to achieve what no other Portugal team has achieved before?
We believe that he definitely can do that. Not only is Portugal in the top 5 best football teams in the world, they have shown almost flawless performance in the recent years. Becoming the European champions is also a feat that speaks for itself.
This means that Portugal is now more ready than ever to defeat other world-class teams and win the tournament.
Cristiano Ronaldo to Win World Cup
Cristiano Ronaldo odds World Cup are high both because of his team and his own performance.
Ronaldo Top Scorer Performance
In the qualification to the World Cup 2018, Ronaldo became one of the top scorers among players from all the countries around the world.
He managed to score 15 goals during 10 matches that Portugal played in UEFA confederation qualifiers.
He’s also the only one to score this number of goals, though three other footballers managed to surpass this score. All of them scored 16 goals in total, including:
- Robert Lewandowski
- Mohammad Al-Sahlawi
- Ahmed Khalil
However, this doesn’t undermine Ronaldo’s skill. That’s one of the reasons why Ronaldo top scorer odds World Cup are so high. They may differ at different sites, but you’ll find they’re around 10/1 at most sites, which is higher than almost any other footballer’s.
Portugal Odds and Performance
Finally, Portugal as a team did very well in the qualifiers too. They played 10 matches in total and won nine of them, losing only once to Switzerland.
They also scored 32 goals in those 10 matches and suffered only four of them while at it. All that made them really deserve to play among the world’s best football teams.
Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best players in the world today. As such, he has huge odds to become the top scorer in the World Cup 2018 as well as to lead his team to victory for the first time in the tournament’s history.
