Ronaldo in the Top 7

Cristiano Ronaldo is preceded by six other experienced players. In the list, we find one of his compatriots, two Brazilian defenders, two goalkeepers as well as the captain of Canada.

The former central defender of Paris Saint-Germain Thiago Silva (38 years and 2 months) is in sixth place. As part of the Chelsea Blues, he will have a big role to play in the defense of Brazil.

In fifth place, we find the Dutch goalkeeper Remko Pasveer (39 years and 1 month). The Ajax Amsterdam goalkeeper is number 1 in the hierarchy.

Then comes the turn of Dani Alves (39 years and 6 months), the former right-back of FC Barcelona. In leg since leaving UNAM Pumas in Mexico, the side has proven in recent months that he can always bring more to the Seleção.

Eiji Kawashima (39 years and 8 months), the doorman of the Racing Club de Strasbourg, occupies the last step of the podium. With 95 selections on the clock, the 1m85 goalkeeper is undoubtedly one of the most experienced players in Japan.

He is closely followed by Pepe (39 years and 8 months), the central defender of FC Porto and former boss of the Madrid defense. Alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese will use all his experience to take his team as high as possible in the World Cup.

On the top step of the podium, we find Atiba Hutchinson (39 and 9 months). The Besiktas defensive midfielder has been one of Canada’s strong men for many years.
