While the eyes of the football world were focused on Brazil for the World Cup draw, Cristiano Ronaldo caught up on his beauty sleep.
Ronaldo didn’t watch Friday’s draw, when his native Portugal was placed alongside Germany, Ghana, and the United States in Group G, because he was “sleeping,” he told a news conference on Sunday.
When he did awake to see his country’s positioning, he felt confident about their chances.
“It’s a very difficult group. Germany is always a candidate to win it, Ghana and the United States are great teams, so it’s difficult,” Ronaldo said.
“But from my point of view, we can get through. It depends on how confident the team is. The team’s training camp will be very important.”
