Casemiro warns Ronaldo
Speaking as Brazil prepares to face Switzerland in their second group game at the 2022 World Cup, Casemiro said he wished him well except when they played against him.

“I haven’t exchanged any messages with him, but Cristiano Ronaldo is a player with great experience, and he knows what’s best for his career. Of course we are sad..."
Ronaldo scored from the spot in Portugal’s 3-2 win over Ghana in their first game in Qatar, while Casemiro produced a phenomenal performance as Brazil beat a determined Serbia 2-0.
