Cristiano Ronaldo failed a lie detector test when asked a tricky World Cup question

Cristiano Ronaldo was asked a difficult question about the 2026 World Cup during a recent lie detector test.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who currently plays his football for Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr, sat down with a professional polygraph examiner for a recent video with cryptocurrency exchange companyBinance.

In the test, he will discuss a number of topics regarding his glittering career at Manchester United and Real Madrid, along with his contributions to the Portugal national team, according to Binance content creatorTineoysidro7.

Despite winning nearly every accolade the game has to offer, the World Cup trophy remains elusive for the Portuguese superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo.

During a test, Binance sought to inquire if Ronaldo believed his country would secure victory in the 2026 World Cup, although the 38-year-old is widely expected to miss the tournament. You can watch the footage below.

When questioned about Portugal’s chances of winning the trophy, Cristiano Ronaldo hesitated for a brief moment before responding, “Yes.” However, the results of the test indicated that he was, in fact, not being truthful. Ronaldo then playfully cracked a smile and remarked, “What a pessimist, huh?”

While the 2026 World Cup might be a challenging goal for Ronaldo, he could have his sights set on the 2024 European Championships. Roberto Martinez has included him in the squad for this week’s Euro 2024 qualifying matches, demonstrating that he remains a crucial part of the team’s future plans.

Speaking back in March, Ronaldo admitted he wasn’t ready to retire from international duty and stated that he wanted “to take Portugal to the highest level”.

“I’m not going to lie, in our life, we have to put everything on the scale,” he told reporters ahead of Portugal’s into a Euro 2024 qualifier against Liechtenstein.

“We thought, we reflected, me and my family, but then we came to the conclusion that, despite the difficulties, we cannot throw in the towel. I was able to see situations at different angles. I learned a lot from that.

“I’m glad to be back. Roberto Martinez showed that he counted on me. I’ve always wanted to play. As you know, he talked to everyone and to me, too.

“And I was able to realise that I have a lot to give to the national team. I feel it, I want it, and my desire is to take Portugal to the highest level. I will always give my contribution when they need me.”
