Confirmation that Cristiano Ronaldo could soon be playing alongside Bebe

by Sam Peoples

Portugal manager Paulo Bento refused to rule out the possibility of Bebe going to the World Cup this summer.

The 23-year-old has spent all season on long at Portuguese side Pacos de Fereirra where he suffered from a slow start but he has exploded into 2014 with a flurry of unbelievable goals.

Back-heel flicks over the head’s of defenders followed by a volley, 35 yard free-kicks, first-time volleys from the edge of the box and acute angle finishes, Bebe has really transformed himself and could be rewarded with a wildcard ticket to the World Cup.

Imagine that, the same Bebe who once put in one of the world’s worst exhibitions of how to cross a ball against Wolves could be lining up alongside the world’s greatest player in Cristiano Ronaldo at the world’s greatest competition in the World Cup (not the homeless one).

Will he genuinely go to Brazil? It seems fantastical the think about but in 2014, no player has scored more goals than Bebe in the Portuguese league and with form playing such a crucial role in the mentality of any footballer, Bebe does have a chance of earning a seat on the plane.
