In Portuguese selections and Real Madrid, Pepe and Cristiano Ronaldo are long-time friends. The defender was also the wingman.
Yesterday the supporters of Portugal were in front of their screens to follow the friendly match of their nation against Cameroon. The band at Paulo Bento made the show by étrillant the indomitable Lions 5 to 1, including a doubling of Cristiano Ronaldo. CR7 has found his friend from Real Madrid, defender Pepe. In the press conference, he responded by learning that his partner has become the top scorer in the country’s history.
Cristiano surprises us every day, he has no limit, said Pepe, facing the journalists. One cannot say whether the member of the back-guard of the Merengue exaggerates … “His mentality makes him always want more.” He always tries to beat the number of goals scored the previous season. (…) As a friend and a Portuguese, I am proud that he won his second Golden Ball. I was very happy, he deserves it for a long time. With its stratospheric performances, CR7 impresses over the seasons.
