Cristiano Ronaldo got lucky, he doesn't have to worry about going up against Brad Evans in the World Cup in Brazil next month.
The 29-year old Seattle Sounders man would line up at right back for the United States, but he was left out of the final 23 man squad by Jurgen Klinsmann last night.
Whilst Evans omission didn't get the same out-roar as a certain Landon Donovan's, he took it incredibly well.
"You got off easy this time @Cristiano" Evans tweeted out after learning of his fate last night, which was incredibly well received by the Twitter-Sphere, being retweeted a massive 6000 times.
