Cristiano Ronaldo’s solo show against Sweden in the Nations League shows how good in shape he is at the age of 35.
Portugal won 2-0 against Sweden in the Nations League on Tuesday, Cristiano Ronaldo being the only goalscorer of the game. His remarkable brace brings him to a total of 101 goals for his national team.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner scored his first goal just before the half time whistle with a sensational freekick.
Ronaldo marked his dominance over the game with a net-buster in the second half of the game. Undoubtedly, the former Real Madrid star knows how to break records in style.
Cristiano put an exclusive show as he dribbled past defenders trying to score goals, and showed no signs of weakness as he played for 81 minutes.
Always a fan favorite, the Portuguese made an easy impression for his supporters with an excellent performance on the field. It is hard to believe that he is 35 years old.
Ronaldo expressed his feelings after the game as he nears Ali Daei, who is the top goalscorer for Iran with 109 international goals.
“I am very happy. Firstly, because the team won, which was the goal we had. Then the 100 mark and then the 101, with two goals, makes me very happy” according to Goal.
“Now the future is only for God. I feel good, I feel good for playing with these young players” he continued.
The Juve forward has netted a hat-trick before against Sweden in 2014. “I didn’t follow the comments. It’s an opinion,” he said when asked about playing with Sweden again.
“I knew I had left a mark at this stadium and I knew that, if I played, I would leave a mark again. I don’t care about provocations.”
“What I have done in my career speaks for itself. No, I have to prove nothing to anyone, and when I have to prove it, I show it on the pitch.”
