Just few days after the Portuguese professional footballer Cristiano Ronaldo made remarkable history in the ongoing UEFA European 2020 Championship after Portugal defeated Hungary by 3-0 in the opening match of Group F known as “Group of Death” by becoming the all-time top European Championship goal-scorer, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has just made another history yesterday after Portugal drew 2-2 with France.
Cristiano Ronaldo who is now the highest European Championship goal-scorer has now joined Ali Daei the all time international goal scorer who scored 109 goals during his international career for his home side Iran.
The Juventus and Portuguese captain was seen to have equal Ali Daei’s record in yesterday’s fixture with France in the last Group F performance after scoring a brace through penalty kicks.
Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored 109 goals in his international career as a football in 178th appearances which saw his country side qualify for the next stage of the UEFA European 2020 Championship matching the Iran Striker’s record Ali Daei who scored 109 goals in 149 appearances.
This was acknowledged by Ali Daei on his Instagram page below:
Interesting to know that all the four goals scored yesterday between the two sides Portugal and France were scored by Ex and current Real Madrid Players Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema in the 2-2 result master class play of football in Group F of the UEFA European 2020 Championship.
Three Countries were seen to have qualified from Group F with France who top the group after yesterday’s 2-2 draw with Portugal to secure a 5 point, while Germany maintained the second position with 4 points which many refer to a narrow escape after a 2-2 draw with Hungary.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s side were so lucky after they secured the third position with 4 points in Group F making them quality for the next round as one of the four best third placed side.
The current UEFA European 2016 Championship winner will be looking forward to see if they could retain the trophy as they prepare to meet Eden Hazard side, Belgium who many fans believed should have taken over Cristiano Ronaldo’s role after his departure from Real Madrid to Juventus but has performed below expectations due to injuries.
In the last round of 16 which starts Saturday 26 June, the schedule of fixtures are as follows: Wales v Denmark , Italy v Austria, Netherlands v Czech Republic, Belgium v Portugal, Croatia v Spain, France v Switzerland, England v Germany, Sweden v Ukraine.
Lets hope Cristiano Ronaldo breaks Ali Daei’s record in their next fixture against Belgium.
