Ronaldo to retire with a sweet finish
Following the announcement of his retirement, the CBF have granted Ronaldo’s wish of playing his final match for Brazil at the Pacaembu in June, against Romania.
The striker’s illustrious football career started at Cruzeiro before he went on to travel to Europe to star for some of the world’s biggest clubs, including Barcelona, Real Madrid and both of Milan’s giants, AC and Inter.
Ronaldo expressed his desire to don the famous yellow shirt once more and to make it a great party for the fans, playing as he will at his favourite stadium, where he’s played recently for Corinthians, in a friendly showdown against Romania on 7th June.
Brazil are also set to face Holland in a match which has been confirmed for 4th June at the Serra Dourada Stadium, in Goiânia.
But prior to all of this, following their game against France, Brazil return this month to Europe for another fixture, this time against Scotland at the Emirates Stadium on March 27th in the sixth ever friendly match between to two teams, and the first game they’ll have played since their group stage meeting in the 1998 World Cup.
Previous games have been rather predictable with Brazil remaining unbeaten for 44 years against their opponents, who have so far had ten chances to gain a victory but have only managed two draws in 1966 and 1974.
The squad bound for this match has just been announced, and you can check this out right here, so take a look to whet your appetite and be sure to grab a ticket soon for the clash up in Highbury.
