Ronaldo-Hwang In-beom selected as ‘World Cup Worst Best 11’ by European statistics company

Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo (37) was included in the 2022 International Football Federation (FIFA) Qatar World Cup worst best 11. The name of Hwang In-beom (26, Olympiacos) of the Korean national team was also included. 

On the 20th (Korean time), Britain’s ‘Daily Mail’ quoted European statistics agency ‘Sofascore’ and reported that Ronaldo was selected as the worst best 11 of this World Cup. 

On the 14th of last month, before the World Cup, Ronaldo had an exclusive interview with British journalist Piers Morgan, and was controversial with bombshell remarks criticizing his team, Manchester United. Through two broadcasts, Ronaldo, who directly shot the Manchester United club’s executives, including coach Eric ten Hag, finally broke up with Manchester United on the 23rd of last month under mutual agreement. 

Ronaldo was able to go to any club after this 안전놀이터 World Cup, but he naturally had to pack up after Portugal lost to Morocco in the quarterfinals. In his first match of the group stage, against Ghana, Ronaldo scored a goal from a penalty kick, but failed to increase his attacking points. 

Moreover, Ronaldo seemed to have suffered a blow to his pride when coach Fernando Santos placed him on the bench in successive matches against Switzerland in the round of 16 and against Morocco in the quarterfinals. Ronaldo’s sister and girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez even came forward to criticize Ronaldo’s appointment, and Santos eventually stepped down as head coach of the national team. 

According to the company, Ronaldo earned only a 6.46 rating during the tournament. Ronaldo has been training individually at the Real Madrid training ground since the World Cup and is trying to find a new club. 

Along with Ronaldo, it was Argentina’s Lautaro Martinez (Inter Milan) who was named the worst striker. Martinez was substituted in the quarterfinals against the Netherlands and the final against France. Argentina won the championship, but Martinez was disgraced with a score of 6.35. 

Hwang In-beom of the Korean national team was also included in this list. Hwang In-beom, who was selected as a midfielder along with Switzerland’s Ruben Vargas (Augsburg) and Australia’s Jackson Irvine (St. Pauli) and Matthew Leckie (Melbourne City), received 6.53 points. Hwang In-beom played full-time in all 3 group stage matches, helping Korea in the round of 16 and playing 64 minutes in the round of 16 match against Brazil. 

The defenders were Bartoš Beresinski (Sampdoria) and Camille Glick (Benevento) from Poland, Abdu Diallo (Leipzig) from Senegal, and Sergino Dest (AC Milan) from the United States. The goalkeeper was Edouard Mendy (Chelsea).
