Ronaldo, is a retired Brazilian professional footballer who played as a striker. Popularly dubbed “O Fenômeno” (The Phenomenon), he is widely considered to be one of the greatest football players of all time.
Ronaldo’s career with Brazil’s national team has come to an emotional end with a brief appearance in a friendly against Romania. He came on in the 30th minute and played until half-time, when there was a ceremony to mark his 18-year career. The 34-year-old retired in February having represented Brazil in four World Cups – picking up two winner’s medals of them – and remains the competition’s all-time leading scorer with 15 goals.
