Following in the footsteps of the likes of Barcelona’s Thierry Henry and Chelsea’s John Terry, Man Utd and Portugal trick-meister Cristiano Ronaldo has signed up to be the official European face of Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 when it is released on a wide array or formats later this year.

Ronaldo’s cheeky face will appear on both the game’s retail packaging and the extensive range of POS marketing across the entire PAL territory.

“Cristiano Ronaldo is the most exciting talent in modern football,” Pro Evolution Soccer team leader for Konami UK Jon Murphy stated.

“It is fitting that a player with his incredible skill and poise is to join forces with a game that can thrill and challenge as much as the real thing. His obvious enthusiasm for PES 2008 will be channeled into the game, and we look forward to working with Cristiano in the coming months.”
The footballer himself added: “For me there is no other game that can capture the grace and skill of football like PES 2008. Every element of the game is lavished with incredible detail, and with its close control and fast pace it is the most complete simulation of real football out there.”

PES 2008 will be released this autumn on PS3, 360, PC, PS2, PSP and DS.
