After a somewhat disappointing season at Juventus, with an early Champions League exit and fourth place on the final day of Serie A, Cristiano Ronaldo is preparing for Euro 2020 with Portugal. With the title, the Seleção put his title on the line against Hungary next Wednesday on the first day of the competition.
A chance to win the Ballon d’Or five times to erase some legends from the shelves and enter the record books for the competition.
In fact, the former Manconian is preparing to play the fifth final stage of the European Championship after 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016. This allows him to meet some football legends like Gianluigi Buffon, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Lilian Thurman, Lothar Matthaus, Bastian Schweinsteiger or even Edwin to overtake Sarr , all four euros on their counter.
Excluding injury, the five-time Ballon d’Or must become the player who has played the most league matches. With 56 matches, including the qualifiers, he has lost only Gianluigi Buffon and 58 matches. If he scores in the end, Cr7 will be the only top scorer in the final stage of the European Championship. A niche he currently shares with Michel Platini, who is also the author of 9 goals (but within 1 euro).
