UEFA Champions League

Here Is A Record That Only Jorginho And Ronaldo Possess In Football

Cristiano Ronaldo and Jorginho have been impressive for both their clubs and country throughout last season and their good run of form continued till this season.

Ronaldo scores hat-tricks at regular intervals for the Portugese national team and also scores crucial goals for Manchester United, like the late goals he scored against Villarreal and Atalanta in the UEFA Champions League.

Jorginho on the other hand doesn't score goals much for his club and his country, but he contribute to the team by controlling the midfield and circulating key passes to the attackers upfront, while also balancing defense and attack together. Jorginho has won three trophies this year which are the European Championship, the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup.

There is a record that Jorginho and Ronaldo both have that no one else has in football, at the moment. These two men are the first and only players to win the European Championship, UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Men's Best Player Award, all in the same year. Ronaldo won the European Championship, UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Men's Best Player Award in 2016 while Jorginho won his own in 2021, which is this year. They are both involved in a serious race for the Balon D'or award, so let's see who will eventually win it. What do you think?
