Newly Single Cristiano Ronaldo Seems To Be Doing Quite Well After His Break-Up From Irina Shayk

I’ve gotta say, I’m still kind of sad that Cristiano Ronaldo and Irina Shayk called it quits.

Sure we rarely saw them together, but it was nice to know that they were still a thing. Well, luckily it seems they’re both doing well after the breakup. While we haven’t seen much of Irina, we did get some Cristiano in Madrid today.

He looks put together, mildly happy, not weeping–much better than loads of other people (myself) I know after breakups. But he does have Cristiano Jr. to make him happy.

And judging by the fact that Cristiano is already linked to Spanish news reporter Lucia Villalon AND Irina wasn’t with him when he won the Ballon d’Or, maybe they’ve been broken up for awhile.

Side note: do you follow Cristiano on Instagram? Cause sometimes he posts cute stuff like this.

Ronaldo posted this recently on Instagram! In which Junior has mixed Iron Man and Batman pajamas–giving the love to Marvel and DC! while cristiano having a good father-son time.

Well Cristiano, good luck with your future relationships. If you could go on a beach vacation to drown your sorrows and post shirtless pics, we would be grateful.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s girlfriend Irina Shayk sizzles in topless photo shoot

Cristiano Ronaldo has put his World Cup heartache behind him by sunning himself on the Greek island of Mykonos – while girlfriend Irina Shayk takes part in a topless photo shoot.

Russian model Shayk, meanwhile, posed topless for Maxim‘s latest edition.

And Shayk told the magazine that she and boyfriend Cristiano Ronaldo, the 29-year-old Real Madrid and Portugal soccer player, ignore the haters. 

She said: ‘I don’t care about people’s opinions, and neither does Cristiano. Some people like you; some people hate you. You have to be strong.’

Along with appearing topless on Maxim‘s cover, the sultry brunette also posed in just a pair of white bikini bottoms inside the magazine.

The 28-year-old is eager to carve out an acting career for herself although she has complained that she only gets offered sexy roles such as strippers or bartenders. 

Speaking in the July/August issue of Maxim magazine, for which she posed topless on the cover, Irina moaned: ‘Every time I get a script, it’s, like, bartender…stripper… And I don’t think I would make a bad bartender or stripper, you know?’

However, she was thrilled to land the role of Hercules’ love interest Megara in the new movie Hercules which sees The Rock play the legendary son of Greek god Zeus.

She said: ‘But Greek mythology! Irina is a Greek name, so I think: Maybe it’s destiny?’

 

Cristiano Ronaldo ‘uninked’ for Noble cause

Cristiano Ronaldo confessed that he would never get his skin inked as he wanted to continue donating blood.

The 29-year-old Portugal footie ace, who reportedly gives blood twice a year, doesn’t feel the need to get a tattoo as new tattoos can cause risks of cross-contamination and hepatitis while donating blood.

The Real Madrid star, who had also started donating bone marrow, said that he started the noble act when he learned about his team-mate Carlos Martins’s son’s suffering, News.com.au reported.

Ronaldo added that donating bone marrow was almost like drawing blood, and he would gladly do it again as he understands the seriousness of the disease.

Portugal vs Ghana: Preview – Cristiano Ronaldo rules out chances

If the stars align Portugal can still squeeze into the last 16 but Cristiano Ronaldo has already ruled out their chances of lifting the World Cup title.

With just one point from their opening two games and an adverse goal difference, Portugal are on the cusp of joining England and Spain in falling at the first hurdle in Brazil.

However, if either of Germany or the USA lose and Paulo Bento’s side beat Ghana by a sufficient margin, Ronaldo and co could pinch second spot in Group G.

They will have to do so without Fabio Coentrao, who is still out with a hamstring complaint, but Pepe returns from suspension after he saw red against Germany.

Strikers Hugo Almeida and Helder Postiga are both struggling to reach full fitness so Eder may earn his first start of the tournament alongside Ronaldo, who is still nursing a knee problem – and not expecting fireworks.

“Maybe we are an average team,” said the 2014 Ballon d’Or winner. “It would be a lie to say that we are a top team. We have a very limited team and we are not at the best level.

“This does not enable you to beat top teams. There are no miracles. We knew we would have a tough group, with perhaps teams better than us.

“I am not a hypocrite – I never thought we could be world champions, we have to be humble and know our level.”

Ghana are three goals better off than Portugal but, also sitting on just one point, they equally need a victory as well as hoping either Germany beat the USA or suffer a heavy defeat themselves.

The Black Stars are without a clean sheet in their last six World Cup games but Portugal – despite possessing one of the most potent players on the planet – have failed to score in six of their last nine.

Coach Kwesi Appiah will be without Sulley Muntari, which may see former Chelsea man Michael Essien come into the midfield, while Kevin-Prince Boateng should retain his starting place.

However, Muntari’s suspension is not the only disturbance to the pre-match build-up after the country’s government were forced to fly $3million to Brazil this week.

The money was sent on Tuesday to settle the appearance fees of a number of Ghanaian players who almost boycotted the trip to Brasilia.

An official statement from the Ghana FA said: ”We wish to assure the general public following President (John Dramani) Mahama’s intervention the Black Stars are in high spirits ahead of Thursday’s match last Group G match against Portugal.”

Portugal were never World Cup contenders, says Cristiano Ronaldo

Portugal’s star captain Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed he never believed his side could win the World Cup this summer.

Despite pre-tournament expectations, Cristiano Ronaldo has maintained he never saw Portugal as legitimate World Cup contenders this summer.

Following a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Germany, the side could only manage a last-gasp 2-2 draw with the USA on Sunday, leaving them on the brink of elimination going into their final group game against Ghana

Portugal now need both a thumping win on Wednesday and for either Germany or the USA to claim all three points in Group G’s other matchup in order to progress to the last 16, but Ronaldo already appears resigned to an early exit.

 

Maybe we’re an average team,’ he told Fox Sports. ‘It would be a lie to say that we are a top team. We have a very limited team and we are not at the best level. This does not enable you to beat top teams.

‘There are no miracles. We knew we would have a tough group, with perhaps teams better than us,’ he added. ‘I never thought we could be world champions, we have to be humble and know our level.

‘I’m not a hypocrite. I never thought we could win the tournament.’

 

 

 

Finishing behind Russia in their World Cup qualifying group, Portugal needed a playoff win over Sweden to make it to Brazil, but the mere presence of the Real Madrid forward in their lineup still saw them enter the tournament as one of the more fancied sides.

Ronaldo cuts training short with injured left knee

Cristiano Ronaldo told Portuguese media that his troublesome left knee was fine on Thursday during a training session in which a fan ran onto the field to get his autograph.

Ronaldo, who has suffered tendinosis around the knee, gave a thumbs up to RPT television when asked if he was 100 percent physically and said “it’s fine.”

Around 10,000 fans watched the open training session in Campinas in a carnival atmosphere.

At one point, a woman ran onto the pitch to try and reach Ronaldo, evaded one security guard and ran another 40 metres before being brought down by another.

Ronaldo, who played in Portugal’s 5-1 friendly win over Ireland on Wednesday, went over to sign his autograph on her shirt before the Portugal players threw shirts into the crowd amid hysterical scenes.

Left back Fabio Coentrao was the only player to appear on the Portuguese federation’s daily medical bulletin after he missed training because of a bruised right buttock.

Portugal face Germany in their opening World Cup game on Monday.

“Portugal will not change our style or identity against any opponents,” said midfielder Joao Moutinho in a news conference after the practice. “We have to impose our type of football.”

Ronaldo Injury Free, Ready To Return to the Action

Cristiano Ronaldo confirms he has returned to full fitness after hamstring strain. The Portuguese superstar has missed Real Madrid’s last two games but is eager to get back playing after the ”best start” to the season of his career

Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo has completely recovered from a hamstring strain that has caused him to miss the club’s last two games.

The 28-year-old suffered the injury against Almeria on November 23, causing him to miss the Champions League win over Galatasary as well as the league success against Real Valladolid.

While Gareth Bale shone in his absence, scoring a hat-trick, Ronaldo has revealed he has made a full recovery and is now ready to return to action.

The Portuguese said: ”I have been fine for a couple of days. I no longer have an injury.

”We preferred not to push things against Valladolid but I will there for the next game for sure.”

Real’s next game is a King’s Cup clash against third division, Olimpic de Xativa on Saturday.

While Ronaldo would usually be rested for this type of game, boss Carlo Ancelotti may use it as an opportunity to boost his fitness ahead of the trip to Copenhagen next week.

He will be eager to end the year on a high after a record-breaking season, which has seen him take pole position in the race for the 2013 Ballon d’Or.

The former Manchester United striker, who last won the coveted trophy in 2008, has scored 14 goals in his last seven games for club and country and had admitted he is delighted with his recent form.

Ronaldo continued: ”I am on good form. It’s possible that it is the best start to the season of my career but the past few years have also been very good.”
