Cristiano Ronaldo, the tireless record-breaker, continues to pursue impressive milestones in his career.
After becoming the player with the most appearances for the national team, the star now sets his sights on another historic achievement, which could take a significant step forward in the clash against Liechtenstein in the qualifiers for Euro 2024.
With 9 goals scored for the Portuguese national team in 2023, CR7 needs to find the net 6 more times to make this season the most prolific of his career with the national team. If successful, he will surpass his own record set in 2019 when he scored 14 goals.
Furthermore, Cristiano Ronaldo recorded 13 goals on two other occasions, in 2016 and 2021. The quest to make 2023 his most prolific year with Portugal begins with the matches against Liechtenstein, scheduled for this Thursday (16), at 4:45 PM (Brasília time), with coverage on ESPN on Star+, and later against Iceland.
CR7’s impressive records with the Portuguese national team include the most participations in the Euro (5), the most participations in the World Cup (5), the highest number of games in the Euro (finals and qualifiers), and the record for most goals in the Euro (finals and qualifiers). Additionally, he is the only player to score three goals in Euro final stages and to score goals in five World Cup final stages. Cristiano Ronaldo is also the first player to achieve ten hat-tricks for the national team and holds goal-scoring records in the UEFA World Cup qualifiers, among many other notable accomplishments.
