Cristiano Ronaldo was nostalgic as he refreshed back memories from the most important trophy of his career.
Cristiano Ronaldo has talked about the “most important trophy” of his career up until now. Along with that, he also revealed his favourite goal.
Without a doubt, the Portuguese is one of the most successful football players on this planet. He has won an incredible 32 trophies around different leagues while playing for Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Juventus.
Also, we cannot forget the five Ballon d’Or awards, which rest besides two international winners’ medals. Out of all his glittering silverware, Ronaldo now says that the 2016 European Championship trophy is very close to his heart.
Five years ago, the 36-year-old striker bagged three goals during Portugal’s spell at the Euros. However, in the final game against France, he was forced out due to injury and Eder scored the winning goal in extra time.
His setback did not stop him as we all saw a rejuvenated Cristiano communicating with his teammates from the sidelines. Truly, his passion for the sport and the desire to win everything was seen by all as his nation secured a long-awaited silverware.
While speaking as an Official Brand Ambassador for LiveScore, the Juve forward said: “The start of the UEFA European Football Championship 2016 was going well for me but then I was sad because I got injured [in the final vs France].”
“By the end of the match, I was crying with happiness! I experienced three types of feelings and emotions in that game. But at the end of the day, it was unbelievable what I felt!”
“It is probably the most important trophy that I’ve won in my life. It was very emotional. To win it again would be incredible, and of course, we go to the tournament with that as our ambition.”
“We have a good team but also we know there are a lot of very strong teams there.”
CR7 picks his most favourite goal.
Asides from this story, Ronaldo was delighted to pick a favourite from his 777 career goals. If you haven’t guessed already, yes, it is the unbelievable overhead kick that he scored against Juventus in the 2017-18 Champions League final.
“As you know, I have scored 777 goals in my career,” said Ronaldo. “It is a bit unlucky but unfortunately. I have to mention that I scored my favourite ever goal against my current team, Juventus. And past my great friend Gianluigi Buffon!”
“I would say that is my best and favourite goal that I’ve ever scored in my career.”
