Cardoso, who has been on the books of Ibrox club Rangers since the summer of 2017 when he joined from Vitoria Setubal for a transfer fee reported by The Daily Record to be worth £1.3 million, was impressed with the performance of Real Madrid star Ronaldo for Portugal against Spain in their World Cup Group B game.
The former Manchester United forward scored a hat-trick, as Portugal played out a 3-3 draw with Spain.
Cardoso, who is from Portugal and has represented his country at the youth levels, was blown away by the performance of Ronaldo.
The 24-year-old central defender has posted the following message on Twitter, which when translated from Portuguese reads: “Ronaldo never stop playing football please.”
Ronaldo nunca deixes de jogar futebol por favor— Fábio Cardoso6 (@fcardoso04) June 15, 2018
Bruno Alves at the World Cup
Cardoso’s Rangers teammate, Bruno Alves, is part of the Portugal team for the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia.
The central defender was an unused substitute during the match against Sapin, and it will be interesting to see how much playing time he gets in the tournament.
