Ronaldo tells Brazil to take it one step at a time in World Cup bid
At a World Cup warm-up event at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro, double World Cup winner Ronaldo gave his own insight into what it takes to be successful at the biggest tournament a player can feature in.
Speaking to reporters at the Brahma-sponsored event, Ronaldo said: "In the World Cup every opponent is tough. We've seen in many cups you get past the first stage , but then the games get more difficult."
"Especially here in Brazil, with the pressure the Brazilian team will have. We have to take each game as if it were a final."
Ronaldo then went on to praise the reconstruction of one of the world's most famous venues: "I think it's great. It gives an even more beautiful legacy to this World Cup. The Maracana is a spectacular and beautiful thing."
