To commemorate this feat of CRSeven, before the match, the official of the Guinness Book of World and the president of the Iceland Football Federation handed over the certificate of making the world record to Ronaldo.
Since his debut in the jersey of Portugal in 2003, he has been making one record after another. Ronaldo made a record while playing in the field of Iceland. He played 200 matches as the first footballer.
Ronaldo set the record for most appearances in men’s international football with the match against Liechtenstein in the Euro qualifiers this year. It was his 197th match. Before Ronaldo, the record was held by Kuwait’s Badr Al Mutawa. Mutawa played 196 matches.
There are thousands of stories behind this feat of Ronaldo. He has given many successes to Portugal in his 20-year career. Under his leadership, Portugal won the European Championship and the Nations League title for the first time.
However, Ronaldo has also seen the opposite side of the coin. In the last World Cup in Qatar, this star did not get a chance to play properly due to a problem with coach Fernando Santos. As a result, Portugal was eliminated from the quarter-finals after losing against Morocco.
After that, there were rumors that maybe Ronaldo will not be seen in the jersey of Portugal. But leaving everything behind, 38-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo is walking on the green canvas.
