Yeh I’m not saying he didn’t bottle it as an international player I’m just saying it doesn’t really discredit his quality for me. I fucking loathe Messi and Ronaldo but I don’t think the fact that neither have won a world cup reflects their professional career at all. Hell I actually think Ronaldo coming off helped Portugal win he Euros, the team played as a unit without the ego.
International football and club football are just completely different games to me. It’s sad but honestly I feel like international football is a dieing facet of the game. Everything is about the ego and money that comes with club football.
