Can we ever get enough of this legendary footballer?
Last night, Ronaldo scored four goals in the routing of Lithuania in the 2020 European qualifiers. With those goals, he has overtaken Robbie Keane to top the goal scorers chart for European qualifiers with 24 goals, one above the former Ireland international sitting at 23 before the clash last night.
Cristiano Ronaldo now has 54 career hat tricks and is currently on 93 international goals. Ronaldo's apparent next target is all time highest international goal scorer with formee Iran International Ali Daei topping the chart with 109 goals.
It is very safe to assume that before Ronaldo calls retirement to his blistering football career, he should be retiring with the honor of being the highest goal scorer in international matches. At the rate the Portguese is known for pouring in goals, 16 goals should not be difficult to reach and surpass as there would be more than enough matches open for him to play in before calling it quit to international football or the game entirely.
When you look at Ronaldo's ridiculous goal ratio, you can't help but wonder what exactly makes him stand out this much and why there aren't much goal scorers like him in current football but that is a question meant for the gods, isn't?
