Cristiano Ronaldo, the icon of Portuguese football, made headlines after Portugal beat Ireland 3-0.

In his first start during the build-up to Euro 2024, Cristiano Ronaldo showed that he is still a force to be reckoned with. The 39-year-old striker, who scored two goals, highlighted his ability to influence the match, despite the weight of years. The first goal was scored with a curling shot into the top corner after eliminating a defender. A jewel of technique and finishing whose secret is known only to the Portuguese. The second, a powerful shot from the left after an excellent pass from Diogo Jota, shows he is still a great striker.

In a statement to Portuguese television, Cristiano Ronaldo shared his thoughts on the end of his career that is inexorably approaching: “ I know I don't have many years left in football. As they say in Spain, every year is a gift. Playing after 35 or 36 is already a gift. Today I'm 39 and I try to enjoy it every year. »
