Time passes and Cristiano Ronaldo is still at the top, reaping titles and breaking records. At the age of 36, the Portuguese footballer has become the top scorer in history in national teams and has entered the Guinness Book of Records. And in the last hours, he has celebrated that milestone through social networks, with a phrase that shows his desire to continue scoring goals.
“Thanks to the Guiness World Records. It is always good to be recognized as a world record. Let’s keep trying to put the numbers even higher! ”CR7 wrote in a post on his Instagram account where he displayed the certificate.
Those closing words suggest that he will not settle for the two goals he scored at the Algarve Stadium for Portugal’s victory over Ireland in the European Qualifiers for the Qatar World Cup 2022. With those two goals, Ronaldo reached 111 annotations and surpassed the mark he shared with Iranian Ali Daei.
After taking another step in the great history of world football, Cristiano now moved to Manchester to materialize his return to Old Trafford after 12 years. Although Portugal has a friendly against Qatar on the agenda and a commitment against Azerbaijan to qualify for the 2022 World Cup, the 36-year-old gunner received permission to fly to England.
In addition to scoring two important goals for his team, CR7 received a yellow card in the match against Ireland and must meet a suspension date, which is why the Portuguese federation allowed him to break free from the group for the next matches of the national team to launch his new stage at Manchester United.
In this way, Cristiano will be able to join the group of players who remained working under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and arrive better prepared for his first game, which will probably be against Newcastle United at Old Trafford on Saturday 11 September. All Red Devils fans are looking forward to seeing the Portuguese star again with the number 7, the one with which he shone between 2003 and 2009.(INFOBAE)
