Cristiano Ronaldo Insists He has Nothing to Prove to Anybody
Juventus and Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo said he knew he would score against the Swedes in the stadium which he is very familiar with, Cristiano Ronaldo scored the two goals which sealed their victory last night. His brace marked his 101 country career goal after the game the striker came out to say he had no point to prove anymore.
Cristiano Ronaldo played for his country for the first time in 2020, having sat out of last week’s 4-1 defeat of Croatia. That result had prompted suggestions Portugal might be better in the absence of their talisman, but he set the record straight on Tuesday. Cristiano Ronaldo said: “What I have done in my career speaks for itself. No, I have to prove nothing to anyone, and when I have to prove it, I show it on the pitch.”
On his excellent goal, he said: “I am very happy. Firstly, because the team won, which was the goal we had. Then the 100 mark and then the 101, with two goals, makes me very happy.” “Now the future is only for God. I feel good, I feel good for playing with these young players.” The match against Sweden was played behind closed doors with the coronavirus pandemic still making it impossible for fans to attend games in most regions across Europe..
Ronaldo also spoke on it hurts to play without fans, the 35-year-old said: “Playing without fans is like going to the circus and not seeing clowns.” “It’s like going to the garden and not seeing flowers.” Portugal has now won both of their Nations League matches and sit top of group three in league A with a goal difference advantage over France who are also two from two.
The Portuguese and French will square off against each other on the 11th of October for the first time since they last played each other in the Euro finals which Portugal won.
