Cristiano Ronaldo will seek to ally himself with his favorite number, 7, during the three matches that he will play from Wednesday with the Portugal National Team, since he is 7 goals away from reaching the top scorer of the teams, the Iranian Ali Daei, who retired with 109 points for the Persian team.
Another record that 'CR7' is looking for and that, if achieved, would mean reaching 777 official goals in his career, since, currently, according to the Transfermarkt portal, Cristiano accumulates a total of 1,054 games and 770 goals in his participations with Sporting , Manchester United, Real Madrid, Juventus de Turin and the Portugal selection. With his National Team, Ronaldo has already scored 102 goals and the next three commitments for the Portuguese could be perfect to dethrone the Iranian, taking into account that the opposing teams are, a priori, easy rivals.
Portugal will face Azerbaijan in Turin on March 24, on March 27 they will play Serbia in Belgrade and on March 30 they will face Luxembourg at home. At 36 years old, Cristiano does not want to miss the opportunity to expand his legend with the national team, with which he made his debut at 18, on August 20, 2003 in a match against the Kazakh team.
His first steps as a scorer
His first goal with his team was scored on June 12, 2004, during the discount of the Portugal-Greece opening match of Euro2004. A confrontation that was repeated in the final that the Hellenes won in Lisbon. In official matches for his club, the Funchal club scored his first goal for Sporting on August 14, 2002, before he was signed by Manchester United. Since then, and for 18 consecutive years, Ronaldo has become a benchmark scorer in international football. 2019 was the best year as a scorer for the national team, with 14 goals that included a poker and two hat-tricks.
