Ronaldo lost the number of records he has broken, said the Portuguese striker after scoring the 700th goal of his career in a 2-1 defeat to Ukraine on Monday. Fans have bought their Portugal Euro Cup Tickets and hoping for their favorite players to perform well in the tournament.
The records come naturally, I do not seek them, they seek me, he told the press after having scored his 95th goal for his country.
“This number cannot be reached by anyone and I thank everyone, teammates, colleagues, coaches and everyone who has helped Cristiano to become the player he is.”
However, Ronaldo said that the loss to Ukraine in qualifying for Euro 2020 had somehow missed the performance.
“It’s a nice moment in my career but there was a bitter taste because we didn’t win,” he said. “We played well, but we didn’t win. We did everything we could and we had plenty of chances.”
Ronaldo is the all-time leading scorer in the Champions League with 127 goals, holds the record for most goals in a single season, is Real Madrid’s all-time leading scorer, and Portugal’s most capped player and record scorer.
The first five goals of Ronaldo’s career were scored for the Portuguese Sporting in 2002-03.
He then scored 118 goals in 232 appearances in six seasons with Manchester United and, remarkably, averaged one goal per game for Real Madrid, scoring 450 times in 438 appearances in nine seasons.
In just over a season with his current club, Juventus, he scored 32 more goals in 51 matches.
Despite the defeat, Portugal remained second in Group G with 11 points in six games, one ahead of Serbia, and will qualify for Euro 2020 if they win the remaining home games against Lithuania and Luxembourg.
“We played too much with our hearts and not enough with our heads,” said coach Fernando Santos.
