‘Worst World Cup of all time’: Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister mocks Qatar tournament after Portugal’s surprise exit and refuses to praise long-term rival Lionel Messi for inspiring Argentina to glory – instead hails ‘unreal’ Kylian Mbappe
Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister called this year’s World Cup the ‘worst ever’ in a sensational social media post.
Katia Aveiro, 45, was watching her star brother’s elimination from the tournament in the quarter-finals after Portugal’s shock defeat at the hands of underdogs Morocco.
She didn’t back down from her criticism of the tournament in a recent post and refused to praise Ronaldo’s longtime rival, Messi, after winning the World Cup final on Sunday.

Ronaldo’s sister took to social media to praise Kylian Mbappe for his performance in the final
‘Worst World Cup ever… Fortunately, he gave us a great final,’ Aveiro wrote on social media. Great match. Congratulations to Argentina.
Additionally, she claimed: “Kylian Mbappe. This boy is unreal. What a bright future awaits you. Fabulous.’
In a more recent development, Spanish newspaper Marca reported that Saudi club Al-Nasr “expects” to sign Ronaldo by January 1.
Sunday’s final saw Lionel Messi finally claim the World Cup after a thrilling encounter that saw Argentina defeat France on penalties.
Mbappe scored a hat-trick in the match to send the match to penalties but it wasn’t enough to secure victory for his team as they fell to defeat at the last hurdle.
Despite this, there was nothing but praise for the Frenchwoman from Aveiro as she chose to neglect the feat of Messi, Ronaldo’s long-term rival, for winning the competition.

Cristiano Ronaldo could not prevent Portugal from being knocked out in the quarter-finals of the World Cup
Aveiro watched as her brother, Ronaldo, was knocked out to face Portugal in the quarter-finals of the competition – as he was seen crying the entire time.
There have been questions about Ronaldo’s commitment after suggestions he was willing to step away from the national team camp during the World Cup.
However, Ronaldo stayed with his team’s quarter-final exit. He ended up losing his starting place to Benfica’s rising star Goncalo Ramos.
His sister had urged him to leave the World Cup and go home to a place of “all the gratitude and not the ingratitude” following his demotion to the bench in Portugal.
It was clear that Ronaldo was unhappy after being eliminated from Portugal’s World Cup last 16 match against Switzerland, having failed to reach his highest levels in his group stage campaign.

The 37-year-old has yet to announce his home club future, having left Manchester United midway through the World Cup.
After his brilliant encounter with Piers Morgan, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s contract was terminated by mutual consent at Old Trafford.
There were reports that the star was ready for a big money transfer to the Saudi club Al-Nasr, but it seems that these rumors have died down in recent days.
