Will Cristiano Ronaldo play at Euro 2024?

Ronaldo says he has no plans to retire from Portugal action, despite the fact he’ll be 39 by the time Euro 2024 kicks off in Germany.

He’s hinted he could keep playing into his 40s, but will continually assess his own situation for club and country.

He recently said: “Things have happened in my life, both on a personal and professional level, that make me think more in the short term nowadays.

“People say I’m going to play on until I’m 40 or 41 years old. I don’t set these targets. It’s a question of just enjoying the moment, which is a good moment. I feel good. My body is responding to how I’ve treated it over the years.

“I’m happy both at my club and in the Selecao. I’ve scored plenty of goals, I feel in good shape physically. It’s a question of enjoying the moment.”
