Brazil vs France 0-3 World Cup Final 1998 HD Full Highlights

Ronaldo scored 44 goals in 47 games with Cruzeiro, leading them to their first Copa do Brasil in , and the Minas Gerais State Championship in He was selected for the tournament despite being just 17, but did not play in any games.

Then he came to Barcelona. He did things I'd never seen before. Ronaldo was a beast. Everything that would come to define him — the lightning pace, the blurry stepovers , the implausible impression that he was faster with the ball than without it, even the exceptional upper-body strength — was all there.

His stepover was a form of hypnosis, and his signature trick, the elastico , could certainly have come from a computer screen. Ronaldo was at his physical peak at Barcelona, and many of his 47 goals involved him rounding the goalkeeper before slotting the ball into the net.

He was a perfect physical specimen. Such incredible power matched to his technical skills could make him unstoppable. I bought all the books, all the videos and I studied what it could be like to be the best.

I set off on that path. Then I met Ronaldo. Some players were technical, some were quick, some were strong, some were smart Ronaldo was all of those.

He was a beast; it was unfair to everyone else. Ronaldo is the best my eyes have seen", [26] and in regarded him as the best player post-Diego Maradona.

He was slim and powerful, skillful, fast and deadly. He was ridiculously good. Ronaldo's time at Barcelona lasted one season, as there were problems with the renegotiation of his contract.

Ronaldo adapted to the Italian style of the game in his first season, finishing with 25 Serie A goals, and was named Serie A Footballer of the Year.

He began racking up assists, became first-choice penalty taker, taking and scoring freekicks. Milan in the Derby della Madonnina.

Ronaldo and prolific Fiorentina striker Gabriel Batistuta were the two best strikers in Serie A, with their duels the most anticipated in Italy.

Running through defence to go one on one with Lazio goalkeeper Luca Marchegiani , Ronaldo feinted to go right then left, without touching the ball, leaving Marchegiani on his backside, before going right and slotting the ball into the net.

He proved that he was a cut above the rest that season. After two seasons with Inter, A. Milan defender Paolo Maldini viewed Ronaldo and Diego Maradona as the two best players he ever faced, stating, "Ronaldo during his first two years at Inter was a phenomenon.

Ronaldo's recurring injury problems forced him to miss the entire —01 season and much of the two seasons either side of it.

It was extraordinary. In the second leg of Real Madrid's Champions League quarter-final, Ronaldo scored a hat-trick against Manchester United at Old Trafford , knocking the English team out of the competition.

In the —04 season , Madrid were on track to win the treble, until Ronaldo was injured towards the end of the season; they subsequently lost the Copa del Rey final, were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals to AS Monaco , and suffered a league form breakdown.

In his final two seasons at Real Madrid, Ronaldo missed a number of games with injuries and weight issues, and with the acquisition of Ruud van Nistelrooy in , he grew further out of favour with the manager Fabio Capello.

While past his s prime, Ronaldo still drew praise from his Madrid colleagues, with Zidane stating, "Without hesitation, Ronaldo is the best player I ever played with or against.

He had such an ease with the ball. Every day I trained with him, I saw something different, something new, something beautiful.

On 18 January , it was reported that Ronaldo agreed terms with A. After his move to Milan, Ronaldo joined the list of the few players to have played for both Inter Milan and A.

Milan in the Derby della Madonnina , and is one of few players to have scored for both rival teams in the Milan derby game for Inter in the —99 season and for A.

Ronaldo, however, has never transferred directly between rival clubs. Ronaldo only played plus minutes in his second season at Milan due to recurring injury problems and weight issues.

On 13 February , Ronaldo suffered a severe season-ending knee injury while jumping for a cross in Milan 1—1 draw with Livorno, and was stretchered off and taken to a hospital.

It marked the third such occurrence of this injury, which he suffered twice to his right knee in and His reaction was the same. I called him last evening and told him to believe in himself.

He has enormous physical potential. Ronaldo trained with Rio de Janeiro based Brazilian club Flamengo during his recovery from knee surgery, and the club's board of directors said that the doors were open for him to join.

But I was training with Flamengo for four months and didn't receive any offer. Corinthians made an offer that will let me continue my career.

His second goal, a chip over the Santos goalkeeper from 30 yards out, sent the Corinthians fans into hysteria.

Ronaldo scored in Corinthians 4—2 aggregate defeat of Internacional in the final of the Copa do Brasil , helping the club win the trophy for the third time the second of his career , thus earning a spot in the Copa Libertadores He finished the Brazilian Serie A with 12 goals in 20 matches.

In February , Ronaldo signed a contract extension with Corinthians that would keep him with the club until the end of , and said he would then retire.

Mentally I wanted to continue but I have to acknowledge that I lost to my body. The head wants to go on but the body can't take any more.

I think of an action but I can't do it the way I want to. It's time to go. Ronaldo made his international debut for Brazil on 23 March , in a friendly match in Recife against Argentina ; [] his first senior goal for Brazil came on 4 May , in a 3—0 friendly win over Iceland.

In the Olympic Games in Atlanta , Ronaldo played with the name Ronaldinho on his shirt, since centre back Ronaldo Guiaro , two years his senior, was one of his teammates.

Brazil went on to win the bronze medal. He was named player of the tournament in , was the top scorer in , and he scored in the finals of both — against Bolivia in and Uruguay in Ronaldo scored four goals and made three assists en route to the final , [] [] scoring once and assisting Bebeto's goal in a 3—0 win against Morocco in the team's second group stage match, [] netting twice in a 4—1 win against Chile in the round of 16, set—up two goals in Brazil's 3—2 victory over Denmark in the quarter-finals, [] [] and scored once in the 1—1 draw against the Netherlands in the semi-finals, also netting Brazil's first penalty in the 4—2 shoot—out victory.

Ronaldo was the last Brazilian player out of the tunnel as the teams entered the field. During the playing of the Brazil national anthem the camera focused on him throughout, with Ronaldo showing little emotion.

At that moment I'd have to go and live on the North Pole. Here was the world's most famous sportsman, about to take part in the most important match of his career, when he suddenly, inexplicably, fell ill.

Was it stress, epilepsy, or had he been drugged? Prior to the FIFA World Cup , Ronaldo had barely played since rupturing the cruciate ligament in his right knee in April , and he missed Brazil's entire qualification campaign where, in his absence, the team had been poor.

Tim Vickery writes, "Without Ronaldo, Brazil were a shambles, fortunate even to get to the tournament. With him, it was a different story.

It was a fabulous feeling actually to hold it in my hands and kiss it. Ronaldo scored against every opponent in the tournament except in the quarter-finals against England.

He revealed, "when I arrived in training with this haircut everybody stopped talking about the injury".

He's back to where he was; it's hugely satisfying and I am very moved. It was a team without any vanity, or individuals.

The collective was important. On 2 June , Ronaldo scored an unusual hat-trick of penalties for Brazil against arch-rivals Argentina in a World Cup qualifying match.

But I know that one day they will be broken. I have seen il Fenomeno do things nobody else has ever done. Ronaldo played for 15 minutes in a match that ended with a Brazilian victory with a goal from Fred.

Ronaldo was introduced after 30 minutes, partnering new star striker Neymar in attack, and had three shots on target which were saved by the Romanian goalkeeper.

On 13 December Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane played a charity match with their friends against former and current players of the German team Hamburg in the ninth edition of the Match Against Poverty series, which Ronaldo and Zidane established in Ronaldo was chosen as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Development Programme UNDP in as he had the highest global appeal among sportspeople, and he accepted the role as he saw it as "an obligation" to help with causes around the world.

Ronaldo is regarded as one of the greatest and most complete forwards of all time. His coach at Barcelona, Bobby Robson , commented: "Ronaldo could start from the halfway line and the whole stadium would ignite.

He was the fastest thing I've ever seen running with the ball. Had he managed to stay free of injury, he had every chance of becoming the best footballer ever.

He was so natural, so cool, so utterly in control. He would dip the shoulder, step over, and bang!. What stood out to all of us, from the moment we met Ronnie, was that he could do things which other players found very difficult and make them look easy.

But he could also produce those things while running at an unbelievable, explosive pace. There will never, in my view, be a better player than him.

Ronaldo, as so many of those who looked up to him acknowledge, changed what it is to be a centre-forward.

Every time you see a striker who is expected to hold the ball up, beat players, win headers, shoot from range, drop deep, do everything a striker can possibly do — it might be worth remembering him.

He shifted boundaries, challenged convention, just as much as Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have altered our perceptions of what a winger might be.

Ronaldo, the original Ronaldo, inspired a phalanx of imitators, players we see on our screens every weekend. But he also turned the game so that it will always look just a little bit like him.

More than most, he made that No. Most strikers need the midfielders and their teammates, but he does not. The speed of thought he had — and the speed he had to carry out his actions — were perfect.

Ronaldo is the hardest attacker I've ever had to face. He was impossible to stop. He was unmarkable. At the first check you passed, the second burned you, the third humiliated you.

He looked like an extraterrestrial. Ronaldo in his prime was able to do that better than anyone who has ever played the game. The other Ronaldo and Messi were brilliant teenagers but had nothing like the same impact at that age.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi have had longer careers. They have remained at the top every day for 15 years.

However, if we are talking strictly about talent and skill, nobody surpasses Ronaldo. At his physical peak in the s, Ronaldo became severely affected by serious knee injuries he suffered from late onward and the subsequent weight gain during his inactivity, which limited his speed, fitness, and mobility.

Football is all about passion. We want to build the best team possible to compete while also giving information about our management with transparency.

In April , Ronaldo married Brazilian footballer Milene Domingues , at the time pregnant with the couple's first son, Ronald, who was born in Milan , on 6 April Despite his fame — a poll by Nike listed him the world's most famous sportsperson and third most famous person overall — Ronaldo is protective of his privacy, including with teammates, stating in an interview with The Telegraph , "each [player] has his own private life, and no one thinks about anyone else's private life.

Or talks about it. In a interview with Folha de S. Paulo , Ronaldo revealed that, somewhat unexpectedly, he identified racially as white , [] generating a wider conversation about the complex role of race in Brazil.

Actually, at the time, I thought it was some philosophy, something to that effect. Because he knows he's black.

An individual who considers himself white may be genomically more African than an individual who considers himself to be brown or black.

In April , Ronaldo was involved in a scandal involving three travesti prostitutes whom he met in a nightclub in Rio de Janeiro. Coincidentally, Maria Alice was born exactly 10 years after her older brother Ronald.

Milan in The boy was born after a brief relationship between Ronaldo and Michele Umezu, a Brazilian waitress who Ronaldo first met in Tokyo in He invites everybody.

You'd be at a table with him and it'd be a judge sitting opposite talking to a politician with someone off the street listening in. So he just had this amazing aura, where everyone wanted to join him.

Sometimes there'd be 20 to 30 people sitting at meal times with him. He was a wonderful person. Everybody would second that, no matter what club he played for.

Ronaldo has appeared in various commercials, from Snickers chocolate bar to Pirelli tyres. Ronaldo has been sponsored by sportswear company Nike since the early part of his career.

We thought a modern construction of his boot would be a great commemoration of that moment. Ronaldo has appeared in a series of Nike commercials.

He starred in the Nike commercial titled "Good vs Evil" in a gladiatorial game set in a Roman amphitheatre. Cruzeiro [55]. PSV Eindhoven [55].

Barcelona [55]. Inter Milan [55]. Real Madrid [55]. Corinthians [55]. Brazil [55]. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Not to be confused with Cristiano Ronaldo.

For other footballers of the same name, see Ronaldo. Brazilian footballer. He was still a kid. It was in a game where he ended up scoring five goals.

From that point on he showed he was truly a phenomenon. I love [Lionel] Messi , I played many times with Cristiano [Ronaldo] and I adore him, Neymar is outstanding, Ronaldinho was exceptional—but if you put all of them together, you might get what Ronaldo was that season.

In the s, in his physical pomp, in his free-flowing prime, there was nothing remotely like him. By the time the World Cup came along his reputation had extended to the point of fully formed marvel.

A happening. This victory, for our fifth world title, has crowned my recovery and the work of the whole team. They were the first to drop from the penalty box to pick up the ball in midfield, switch to the flanks, attract and disorientate the central defenders with their runs, their accelerations, their dribbling.

Watching him was like watching a character in a video game. At his fearsome peak for PSV, Barcelona and Inter Milan he was arguably the most dangerous striker the world has ever seen.

In the stadium, Motson's colleague, the former England striker Gary Lineker, described it as "the biggest wind-up in World Cup football history.

For anyone who was familiar with the format of a big occasion like this, there were other clues that something had gone awry for Brazil.

Motson says his abiding memory of the event was the absence of their players on the field for a warm-up.

There was obviously quite a lot of things going on in the Brazilian dressing room which we weren't party to. That would be quite the understatement.

What later transpired was that the Brazilian players, who should have been preparing for the biggest match of their careers, were desperately concerned for their friend and talismanic teammate.

Goalkeeper Dida, who was a part of the Brazil squad and who won the trophy with Ronaldo four years later, told CNN that when he arrived for the pre-match dinner, the typically joyous atmosphere of the team room had evaporated.

Someone said 'Ronaldo is not well, he went to the hospital. It wasn't until several years later that Ronaldo admitted he'd experienced convulsions in his room and was unconscious for several minutes.

His roommate Roberto Carlos called for the team doctor, setting in play a series of events that would rival anything that happened on the field later that night.

Ronaldo told the BBC in that he'd spent three hours in hospital, doing "everything that you could imagine. He said, "It was like the convulsions never happened.

We were all so worried and sad about him; we weren't clear on what was happening. The Brazilians made their way to the game without any music on the team bus, a stark indication of their concern.

His replacement, Edmundo, was sent back to the substitutes bench, but the game plan which had been hastily rearranged in the preceding hours was now discarded without any more time for a rethink.

It is perhaps no coincidence that France's first two goals came from Zidane at set-piece corners, exploiting gaps in Brazil's disorganized defense.

Once the game had started, it was soon apparent that Ronaldo wasn't firing on all cylinders; as the game slipped away from the defending champions, the year- old was a shadow of the player who'd already won two FIFA Player of the Year awards and scored four times en route to the final.

But certainly he made no impact on the game," says Motson. The veteran commentator estimates that the events in Paris rank as the most extraordinary of his career and the intrigue continued long after that night, with one of numerous conspiracy theories suggesting that the team's new sponsor Nike had pressured Zagallo to play Ronaldo.

The matter even ended up in a subsequent government hearing, but there was never any evidence to support such a claim. Motson was also calling the final in Yokohama four years later, narrating the most remarkable postscript for Ronaldo, who recovered from multiple knee injuries to score six times and then twice more in the final against Germany.

It was a match that inevitably rekindled memories of Paris and for Ronaldo himself, very painful ones. Ronaldo said that after lunch on the day of the final, he didn't want to sleep, just in case.

His salvation was Dida, who this time was his roommate. The goalkeeper's recipe for success? A lot of talk and a spot of golf in the team hotel.

We got up well, happy, and ready to play. However, his greatest contribution to his country might just have been in Yokohama; his personal touch on the day of that final might just have made all the difference.
