FIFA World Cup

Opinion: Ronaldo, Best International Player Ever.

It is a fact that Ronaldo is way above other footballers. This fact would be argued by Messi fans as they see his achievements greater than Ronaldo's.

Ronaldo has again reminded the world that he is the greatest footballer in history. His hattrick against Luxembourg in their World Cup qualifiers match on 12 October 2021, has sent critics back to their nests. His hattrick against Luxembourg was his tenth international career hattrick and his 58th career hattrick. 

This year, Ronaldo broke the record for most goals in men's international football formerly held by Ali Daei. Ali Daei scored a total of 109 goals during his playing career for Iran. Ronaldo equalled Ali Daei's record in Portugal's Euro 2020 group clash against France where Ronaldo scored two goals from the spot. Ronaldo is now the leading scorer in men's international football with 115 goals. Against Luxembourg, Ronaldo became the most capped men's European player in history.

Only Robert Lewandoski and Erling Haaland have more goals than Ronaldo in 2021. Robert Lewandowski and Haaland have both scored 50 and 41 goals respectively, while Ronaldo has scored 38 goals.
