The 25-year-old captained the Portuguese in a narrow second round defeat to Vicente del Bosque's side, the first of four consecutive 1-0 wins that sent Spain on their way to glory.
Five of Ronaldo's Madrid team-mates were amongst the 23-man squad to lead la Furia Roja to their first ever world crown.
