Cristiano Ronaldo was named in the statistically worst World Cup squad after he had a difficult time for Portugal at the tournament in Qatar.

Ronaldo only scored one goal for his country and was dropped to the bench by Fernando Santos in their round of 16 match against Switzerland and their shock quarter-final defeat against Morocco.

The 37-year-old free agent reportedly threatened to quit the Portuguese camp during a heated encounter with Santos after it was discovered he had been dropped for the Switzerland game, although this was quickly denied by the FA and the player.

Ronaldo’s misery has been compounded by the selection of statistic provider Sovascore as part of the World Cup’s worst team.

The worst XI is based on a Sofascore rating, which gives each player a score out of 10 for their performance in the tournament. To be included, players had to have played at least four matches in Qatar.

Ronaldo, who was once again spotted at Real Madrid’s training ground looking to keep fit as he searches for a new club, was picked up at Sovascore after scoring just 6.46.

The Portuguese forward shares the line up front with Lautaro Martinez, although the Argentine was a member of the squad that lifted the trophy after beating France on penalties in a memorable final.

Martinez, who failed to score for Argentina in Qatar in 148 minutes of the tournament’s entire matches, received a rating of just 6.35.

The Inter Milan striker has been brought on from the bench by Lionel Scaloni in all but two of Argentina’s World Cup matches.

He came on for Manchester City star Julian Alvarez after 13 minutes of extra time in Sunday’s final against France.

Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy was also named by Sovascore in its worst squad with a rating of just 6.30.

Mendy struggled for Senegal, who reached the last 16 before losing to England, as his mistakes cost the African champions in their 2-0 defeat by the Netherlands in their opening Group A match.

The 30-year-old had lost his place in first place to Chelsea before the tournament and his World Cup woes continued – but he kept his place in the Senegal side throughout.

Sergino Dest, who is signed by Barcelona but is on loan at Milan, takes the right-back spot after earning a paltry rating of 6.50.

Kamil Glick and Bartosz Berezinski of Poland, who were both criticized for their passive tactics and performances in Qatar, and Senegal’s centre-back Abdou Diallo completed the back four.

Australia’s Jackson Irvin and Matthew Leckie were selected in midfield, along with South Korean Hwang In-beom and Swiss Robin Vargas.

The soccer World Cup came to a dramatic end on Sunday when Argentina beat France 4-2 on penalties after the thrilling final ended 3-3 at the end of extra time.

Lionel Messi scored two goals to lead the South American national team to the World Cup finals for the first time since 1986, following the example of his late compatriot Diego Maradona.

Kylian Mbappe scored a hat-trick – the first player to do so since Sir Geoff Hurst in 1966 – but his efforts were in vain as France failed to retain the title.
