Born in 1985 and entering his twilight years as a soccer player, Ronaldo is still one of the best strikers in the world, maintaining his performance with excellent self-management. No player has scored more goals than Ronaldo during 2023, including club and national team matches.
According to MOTD, Ronaldo has scored a total of 40 goals for clubs and the national team, including against Bosnia and Herzegovina, since the start of 2023. Ronaldo, who started playing for Al Nasr in Saudi Arabia in January, scored a total of 14 goals last season and six goals at the 2023 Arab Club Champions Cup in August to present the team with the trophy.
Even after the start of the new season, Ronaldo has continued his scoring streak and has scored 11 goals in a total of 11 games so far. His sense of goal, which reached its peak, continued with the national team, scoring nine goals in seven A matches this year, scoring a total of 40 goals from January 2023.
This is a number that exceeds the score (39 goals) of Holan, a “monster striker” who scored a total of 52 goals in all competitions last season. Holan started in the eighth round of Group A between Norway and Spain on the 16th and played full-time, but failed to score and had to give Ronaldo the most points in 2023. Norway lost 0-1 to Spain as Holan remained silent.
After Ronaldo and Holan, Lee Kang-in’s teammate and PSG (Paris Saint-Germain) and French national football team ace Kylian Mbappe (35 goals) scored the most goals in 2023. Mbappe scored two goals in the Netherlands on the 14th to lead his team to a 2-1 victory, and France is scheduled to play a friendly match against Scotland on the 18th, which can narrow the gap between Ronaldo and Holland.
It would not be strange to retire from active duty, but as Ronaldo still showed off his scoring sense and led the Portuguese attack, attention was already focused on what kind of performance he will achieve at Euro 2024 in Germany in June 2024. 스포츠토토
Ronaldo has already won the Euro title in France in 2016. At that time, Ronaldo led his country to the final of the tournament for the first time in 12 years with three goals and three assists, but he was injured in the final against host France and replaced in the 24th minute of the first half. Ronaldo even wiped away tears when he left early due to injury in the much-anticipated final, giving Ronaldo the trophy as Portugal scored the winning goal in the second half of extra time.
In the final match, Ronaldo caused a big buzz by eagerly cheering and supporting his teammates near the touchline, even though he was injured.
