This suggestion was conveyed when Ronaldo visited Richarlison after Brazil’s 4-1 victory over South Korea in the top 16 of the 2022 World Cup at Stadium 974, Doha, Qatar, Tuesday (6/12/2022) early morning.
This result brought the Selecao to the quarter-finals and will face Croatia. Ronaldo hopes that Richarlison et al will continue to consistently bring Brazil to victory in Qatar.
Ronaldo also suggested that Richarlison follow in his footsteps by wearing pigtails when playing in the 2022 World Cup final in South Korea/Japan.
At the 2002 World Cup, it was doubtful that Ronaldo could bring Brazil to victory. This is because he often failed in the final matches, such as when he lost 0-3 to France in the 1998 World Cup final. As a result, at that time there were several parties who called him Mr Runner-up.
To remove the curse, Ronaldo shaved his hair in a ponytail, aka he shaved most of his hair and left only a little in front.
Whether it has something to do with it or not, what is certain is that the former player nicknamed the Fenomenon has succeeded in bringing the Selecao to win the 2022 World Cup. This will be Brazil’s fifth World Cup trophy in history.
“There are only three games left. In the final, you will cut your hair like me (at the 2002 World Cup),” Ronaldo told Richarlison, quoted from the FIFA+ video show.
The former striker who brought Brazil to win the 2002 World Cup witnessed the Brazil vs South Korea duel at the 974 Stadium.
