Ronaldo in pursuit of Platini’s record
MARSEILLE: During Portugal’s clash against Poland in the quarter-final of the Euro Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo will be looking to get his team through to the semi-final stage and surpass or at least equal the record of Michel Platini of scoring most number of goals in European Championships.
Real Madrid’s star will have to exhibit his magical skills to pierce the Polish defence that is proved to be one of the best in the ongoing tournament.
Michel Platini holds the record of scoring nine goals, while Ronaldo has netted eight goals in the European Championship.
Ronaldo has not been in his brightest of colors during Euro 2016, he has scored just two goals in the campaign so far that he scored against Hungary in a 3-3 draw.
He was unable to score against Iceland and Austria in the opening games of Portugal, which frustrated the star player big time.
The Portuguese striker has been in the news for his comments about Iceland’s celebration after a draw and his act of throwing a reporter’s mic in the lake recently.
Ronaldo is yet to win a major tournament for his country, but, he has an opportunity to write history and add another feather in his cap, which Lionel Mess does not have, a major tournament victory for the country.
