Former French international Jimmy Briand told the story of her photo with Cristiano Ronaldowhich has gained popularity on the web.
We played against each other in 2002 at the Under-17 World Cup. Ronaldo was young then, but he was already very good. True, while he too emotionally reacted to everything. I remember he was a little upset after the loss in the match with us, so at the end of the match he had a fight with me. Eventually he was shown a red card.
We lived with the Portuguese in the same hotel and the night after that game I heard a knock on the door. It was Ronaldo, he came to apologize. He also asked for my shirt. That’s when the photo was taken. I also have his shirt, but his last name isn’t written on it, because it was a youth tournament.
