Cristiano Ronaldo has completed his move from Real Madrid to Juventus at the age of 33. Showing that he has no plans of slowing down for the final stages of his playing career, signing a four year deal I very much think that means we will be seeing him in the next World Cup in 2022. That is a truly fantastic thought really, in his press conference he had a little dig at the players at this age who go to Qatar or China. So it is great to see this legendary player still actually wants to play at the very top level!

Capped at England youth level and up to U21s, I always enjoyed seeing his progress after breaking through as a teenager.
