Cristiano Ronaldo did not fail to improve his legendary statistics during Portugal’s victory in Liechtenstein, Thursday evening in the Euro 2024 qualifiers. “CR7” is at 10 goals in the selection at 38 years old, which is a great first.
After two doubles scored last month against Slovakia and Bosnia, Cristiano Ronaldo resumed his good habits with the Portugal selection, opening the score in the victory in Liechtenstein (0-2), Thursday in the Euro qualifiers 2024. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner shook the net with a big left-footed shot at the start of the second half (46th). Joao Cancelo is the other Lusitanian scorer (57th), while Gonçalo Ramos had a goal denied at the end of the match (82nd).

The figures for “CR7”, top scorer in the history of football (now at 865 goals), are completely crazy in 2023, since the Al-Nassr striker has 46 goals in 50 matches in all competitions. Ronaldo, born on February 5, is even the first player in history to score 10 goals for the national team at the age of 38. And the team led by Roberto Martinez ends the year by hosting Iceland on Sunday at José-Alvalade in Lisbon, the stadium of the Madeira idol’s training club.
The Portuguese know that they will not find the French team during the group stage of Euro 2024 as during the last edition in 2021, since this ninth victory in as many qualifying days offers them top status standard for the draw for the competition on December 2. The Blues will also be in the first pot barring disaster against Gibraltar and Greece.
