The Defender Who Cristiano Ronaldo Named as His Toughest Opponent

In football, Cristiano Ronaldo is considered to be one of the top three players to have ever played the game, having won a record-breaking five Ballon D'Or honors in his career. He is presently a forward with Manchester United, and he also serves as the club's captain for the Portugal national team. On Saturday, he scored a goal as Portugal defeated Qatar 3-1 in a friendly encounter in which the hosts responded with a goal. 

He scored a brace on his Man United comeback debut in a 4-1 victory over Newcastle, which marked his first appearance since his injury. Afterwards, Ronaldo scored for United in their first UCL group match against Young Boys, in which the Red Devils were reduced to ten players due to injury. 

Ronaldo identified Ashley Cole as the most difficult opponent he has ever faced during his brilliant playing career in a question and answer session conducted by the Sport Bible sports page. Ronaldo referred to Cole as "one of the most outstanding defenders of all time" after the two had played against each other multiple times in the English Premier League, the United Champions League, and international matches. Cristiano declined to select his most difficult opponent who is presently competing and insisted on naming retired players as his toughest opponents.
