Cristiano Ronaldo will have another presentation with Portugal in the Euro, same where he will be able to conquer the “triple crown” in the competition
The day of this Tuesday of the Eurocup will open with the duel between Hungary and Portugal at the Puskás Arena, the first match of group F. The duel could mean a lot for Cristiano Ronaldo, who, in the stadium that bears the name of a legend football, will seek to achieve the “triple crown” of competition records.
CR7 already holds the mark for the highest number of matches played in the tournament (21) and, as soon as he steps on the field, he will position himself as the only player in history to play five editions of the European Championship. If you score a goal, you will also become the top scorer in the competition.
At the moment, the Portuguese has nine goals, the same number as the French Michel Platini, with an average of 0.43 per game. In the case of the number of editions, he will leave behind 16 other players who were tied with him.
But this is not something that, in the microphones, distracts the number 7. In a press conference prior to the game, the Lusitanian star said that he is focused on another brand to break.
“It is not a record that I am overly excited about. It’s a good record, but the best record would be to win the European Championship twice in a row. The team has been doing well, they are prepared. I hope that (vs. Hungary) the team starts on the right foot, which is very important in this type of competition, ”he said.
To do this, the team begins its campaign against a team that passed its way in 2016. On the last day of group F, a 3-3 draw, with two goals from Cristiano, guaranteed the Portuguese team qualification in the round of 16 as third classified.
The rest is history, which Portugal will try to continue in the land of Ferenc Puskás – and, who knows in the future, also Cristiano Ronaldo.
