The star of the Portuguese national team, Cristiano Ronaldo, has not stopped making achievements at the age of almost four. Most recently, the 38-year-old striker set two records at once when he led Portugal to victory over Slovakia.

The backbone of the Saudi Arabian club, Al-Nassr FC, recorded a brace in Portugal’s 3-2 win over Slovakia in the 2024 European Cup Qualification at the Estadio Do Dragao, Porto, Saturday (14/10/2023).

The team nicknamed Selecao De Las Quinas had to struggle to overcome the guests’ resistance. They took the lead first through Goncalo Ramos’ goal (18′) and Ronaldo’s penalty (29′). However, Slovakia reduced the position through David Hancko (69′) before Ronaldo responded again (72′). Portugal was made nervous after Slovakia narrowed the score again through Stanislav Lobotka (80′).

Luckily, victory remained in favor of Roberto Martinez’s team. For the umpteenth time, Ronaldo was successfully selected as the best player, aka Man Of The Match (MOTM).

With this score, Ronaldo managed to set two records at once. The first record is that Ronaldo has always scored 100 goals every 10 years in the last 3 decades.

In the era from 2000 to 2010, Ronaldo, who was just building his big name with Sporting CP, Manchester United and Real Madrid, scored 206 goals. With Madrid and Juventus in the period 2010 to 2020, CR7 recorded 550 goals.

Now in the 2020 to 2023 era, Ronaldo’s goal account has reached 100 goals in the match which took place early Saturday morning WIB. It didn’t stop there, Ronaldo also set another record.

He has now scored 73 goals at international level after passing the age of 30. Amazingly, this score cannot be matched by any player of any age.

Ronaldo has scored goals for more than 176 national teams. Almost all European and South American countries, from Germany, Italy, England, Spain, the Netherlands, Sweden, Croatia, Denmark, Uruguay, Chile, Mexico, the United States, Egypt and Ghana have become victims of Ronaldo’s ferocity.

First round

Portugal took advantage of their host status to bombard Slovakia’s goal. Many opportunities were created at the start of the match to break the deadlock.

The goal was finally scored in the 18th minute. Bruno Fernandes made an accurate pass after passing the opposing player. Ramos appeared at the right time to finish well.

Portugal’s attack after attack did not stop. Until finally the second goal was scored from the spot after Rafael Leao was brought down in the penalty box.

Ronaldo, who stepped forward as the executioner, converted the opportunity into a goal without error. Portugal was two goals ahead in the 29th minute.

Portugal almost added a third goal to a fourth goal before the first half ended. Goalkeeper Martin Dubravka’s brilliant actions and missed opportunities thwarted that possibility.

Second round

The goal Slovakia had been waiting for only came in the 69th minute. Hancko could be said to have scored an easy goal. His speculative shot from the edge of the penalty box hit a Portuguese player, causing the Portuguese goalkeeper to fail to make a save.

Portugal’s two-goal lead was restored in the 72nd minute. Ronaldo was able to score his second goal, after taking advantage of the Slovak player’s failure to clear Bruno’s low cross.

The visiting team refused to give up. Slovakia’s second goal was scored by Lobotka with a hard kick from outside the penalty box.

Fortunately, until the match ended, Slovakia did not have time to steal the third goal. Portugal, despite winning by a one goal margin, still took home three points.
