Fernando Santos, the head coach of the Portuguese national team, talked about the team’s striker Cristiano Ronaldo, who plays for Juventus.
“Cristiano is unquestionably driven. It’s not that he scored higher or lower than anyone else. When he plays for the national team, he is particularly committed to the game. I am certain that he will come to us with the same expectations, focusing on the team’s tasks rather than his personal goals.
I’m aware that he has a lofty ambition: to be selected for the World Cup, to compete in it, and to win it. Anything else isn’t about the national team; this is the main target “Santos explained.
At the moment, Ronaldo is ranked second among the top scorers in the history of the team’s national teams. For Portugal, the striker has 102 goals. Ali Daei, a former Iranian striker, scored 109 goals in his career.
The Portuguese national team will face Azerbaijan, Serbia, and Luxembourg in March.
Cristiano Ronaldo: “Portugal has the potential to become Europe’s and the world’s champion. We are going to fight.”
