From Real Madrid to the World Cup

The Ronaldo 7 Portugal 2014 World Cup away jersey not only pays tribute to Ronaldo's role as a team captain for the Portugal national football team, but also to his position at Real Madrid, where he has played forward since 2009. The legendary forward wears the jersey number 7 for both teams.

This past season, the jersey number 7 proved to be a good luck charm for Ronaldo at Real Madrid. With his league team, Ronaldo played a substantial role in helping to win the UEFA Champions League Real Madrid's 10th. Ronaldo scored the final goal in the final match to push Real Madrid to a 4-1 victory over crosstown rivals, Atletico Madrid.

That final goal brought Ronaldo's Champions League goal total to 17 for the season, making him the top scorer for the 2013 2014 UEFA Champions League. It was the second year in a row that Ronaldo had topped the goal scorer list (he netted 12 shots in the 2012 2013 season, though Real Madrid ultimately failed to win the title).

The final goal was notable for another reason as well: it brought Ronaldo's career Champions League goal tally to 68, which is more than any other player in history with the exception of Raul, another Real Madrid legend. Lionel Messi is now in third place with a total of 67 Champions League goals.

The World Cup Campaign

Needless to say, fans are hoping some of Cristiano Ronaldo's luck will carry over from the Real Madrid jersey to the Portugal football shirt, and in many ways, it already has. In the qualifying rounds for the 2014 World Cup, Ronaldo scored eight goals, becoming Portugal's leading goal scorer for the campaign (and one of the most prolific goal scorers from any UEFA team).

Four of those goals came in a playoff against Sweden for a place in the tournament. Portugal actually lost its qualifying group to Russia, leaving the team in a position where it had to take on other UEFA runners up for the right to progress to Brazil. Not one to fold under the pressure, Ronaldo scored one goal in the first leg of the match-up with Sweden, and another three in the second leg (just four days later, no less) to win his team a World Cup slot and ignite talk about Portugal as a possible dark horse contender for the title.

Now, with the tournament up and running Portugal didn't get off to the strongest start against Germany, they lost 4-0. The question is whether or not the Ronaldo 7 Portugal 2014 World Cup away jersey has any big charms left in it. Can Ronaldo and his teammates put on a better performance against Ghana and the USA to secure a place in the knockout stage.

Certain factors are threatening Ronaldo's promise. Reports have been swirling for months that Ronaldo is struggling to overcome a thigh injury, and while that injury hasn't seemed to impair his level of play much just yet, it could have more of an impact when he is forced to play against world-class soccer veterans and top-seeded soccer teams. Still, as long as Ronaldo is able to don a Portugal football shirt and take the pitch, there is little doubt that he will be able to make some magic happen even if he has to do it with one leg.
