Cristiano Ronaldo and Other Stars Possibly Making Last Appearance at Event

Cristiano Ronaldo

The organizers of UEFA Euro 2024 are gearing up for what could potentially be a swansong for several footballing legends as the tournament kicks off on June 14.

With speculation rife that this championship could mark the final international appearance for some of the game’s greats, anticipation is high for their performances on the pitch.

Among the stars whose last hurrah is anticipated are Cristiano Ronaldo and Luka Modric, as reported by Metro UK.

Cristiano Ronaldo, the 39-year-old Portuguese icon, is expected to make his final bow on the international stage at Euro 2024, following his successful campaign in 2016. With an impressive tally of 25 appearances and 14 goals in major international tournaments, Ronaldo’s presence marks his 11th participation for Portugal.

Similarly, Luka Modric, the Croatian midfielder, is set to grace the international stage for the ninth time at Euro 2024. Modric, aged 38, came close to clinching international silverware at the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, finishing as the runner-up and third respectively. His experience and prowess in midfield make him a key figure for Croatia.

Polish forward Robert Lewandowski, although still in fine form, may be making his final international appearance at Euro 2024 if Poland fails to qualify for the 2026 World Cup. At 35 years old, Lewandowski boasts an impressive record of 82 goals for Poland, securing his place among the all-time top scorers in men’s European international football.

Germany’s veteran goalkeeper, Manuel Neuer, aged 38, is set to make his eighth major tournament appearance since 2009. Despite recovering from a leg injury, Neuer remains a stalwart figure between the sticks for Germany, bringing his wealth of experience to the tournament.

As Euro 2024 approaches, football fans eagerly anticipate the performances of these esteemed players, recognizing that it may be their last chance to witness these icons grace the international stage.
