Cristiano Ronaldo may have won everything on offer at club level, but he’s admitted he is still driven by his failure to win international football’s biggest prize.
The Portuguese superstar has won more than 20 trophies during his stunning club career and is chasing even more with current club Juventus.
On the international stage, he played a crucial part in Portugal’s Euro 2016 campaign, scoring three goals in their historic run.
But at the World Cup, his nation have flattered to deceive, failing to pass the round of 16 in the last three tournaments.
Ronaldo will be almost 38 by the time the 2022 tournament kicks off and in all likelihood will be his final crack at winning the tournament.
And he believes it’s very possible that Portugal could go all the way in Qatar.
"We won something very special, the European Championship," Ronaldo told Marca.
"We have to have the steps under the ground because we won in 2016 and now we want to win the World Cup.
"It's possible, yes, everything is possible. But you have to be realistic as well.
"As I've told you many, many times, my dream is to win something for Portugal's national team and I won two titles, which have made me feel happy.
"I've won at every club that I've played with, but the World Cup is a dream."
Ronaldo needs just seven international goals to equal the world record of 109 and he’s suggested he still has many years at the top of the game.

"It doesn't matter the age. What is important is the mind," he added.
"It doesn't matter if Cristiano Ronaldo is good, you don't know tomorrow what is going to happen. I live in the present, in the moment.
"The moment is good, I feel happy, I feel sharp and in a good moment in my life. I hope to play many, many years more but you never know.
"This is football, we don't know what is going to happen tomorrow. When I speak to young boys I always say 'enjoy the moment' because we never know what will happen. My eyes see the future very, very bright, so I am happy with that."
