What is the general feeling about Ronaldo among the Portugese?
Depends on whom you ask. For most people here he is a great player, with great talent, but that has a tendency to play for himself and tries to resolve the game situations alone... sometimes this is not good for the overall team.
He is not seen as much of a team player, due to this, and also his youth and still somewhat inexperience leaves him vulneable to overreactions over other players fouls. If a defense knows in advance that if Ronaldo is fouled, he will get mad and try to get even, they may use this to try and get him booked by the referee.
Ask the female population, and he is seen as a god, lots of fans and such. He is the sex symbol of the moment around here. Go figure.
Anyway, he already as a yellow card, so he should be left out of the game by Scolari, along with Pauleta, Costinha...
BTW, his fiancee is the Spanish born, portuguese TV
host Merche Romero. Great taste the man has.
