Cristiano Ronaldo faces flak from Portuguese media after poor run at field in 2022 – Economic Times

Portugal striker Cristiano Ronaldo on Friday became the first person to reach the 300 million followers mark on social media platform Instagram. The Juventus star was also the first person to reach the 200 million mark on the same platform.
Earlier this week, Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo made European Championships history as he became the all-time top scorer in the summer tournament after his record-shattering 10th and 11th finals goals in the opening Euro 2020 match against Hungary.

Ronaldo, who was playing his record fifth European Championship on Tuesday, overtook the previous mark of nine goals set by France’s Michel Platini in Euro’s all-time leading scorer list. On the list of active players, only France’s forward Antoine Griezmann comes close to the five-time Ballon d’Or winner as he has scored six goals in the seven matches played at Euros.

Ronaldo’s late brace also saw him moving onto 106 international goals, three shy of footballing immortality – Iranian striker Ali Daei’s all-time record international goals tally of 109. Juventus marksman also became the oldest player to score for Portugal at a major tournament (World Cup & Euros), aged 36 years and 130 days.

Before Ronaldo stole the stage with a clinical penalty and a brilliant one-two with Rafa in additional time to slot the ball into the back of the empty net, Raphael Guerreiro’s deflected shot opened the scoring for the 2016 champions just six minutes before the full-time against Hungary.
