In this World Cup, he helped us so much, scoring four goals. So yes, it seems like he’s getting better with age. I hope he stays but we’ll see what happens.”Ronaldo is Portugal’s record goalscorer having scored 85 in 154 games for his country. He hit 4 goals for them at this World Cup, including a sublime hat-trick against Spain and a powerful header against Morroco.Cristiano Ronaldo, PortugalAli Daei wouldn’t be upset if Ronaldo breaks his scoring record Andrew Smyth – September 13, 2019 Iranian legend Ali Daei wouldn’t be upset to lose his record as international football’s all-time record scorer to the “great” Cristiano Ronaldo.Bernardo continued: “Everyone is disappointed, him as well.

It’s a bit frustrating for us. But it’s football.” De volta a Portugal depois de uma experiência fantástica de participar num Campeonato do Mundo!
