Ronaldo: Nothing to prove at World Cup

Real Madrid and Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo has dismissed the suggestion he has to prove himself at the World Cup, ESPN has reported.

Ronaldo has netted only twice in the World Cup, having played at the 2006 and 2010 tournaments, and ahead of Portugal’s first game at this year’s tournament, against Germany tonight, he has said his achievements already speak for themselves.

“I don't think I have to show anyone anything,” Ronaldo argued. “Look at my statistics and my CV - I have nothing to prove. My career has been great so far and I just want that to continue.

“But I believe that one player is not a team,” he continued. “I am here to help the team. I am an additional player and I can make a difference, but I can't carry the team on my back.

“I want to be champion, but let's take it a step at a time. We are not in the group of favourites, but we are one of the best. For me it pushes me forward to succeed at a tournament. I like challenges and I want to do my best in whatever competition I am in.”

Ronaldo helped Madrid to victory in the Champions League last season, scoring in the final against Atletico Madrid - a 120th minute penalty to make the score 4-1 after Sergio Ramos, Gareth Bale and Marcelo had all netted.
