Cristiano Ronaldo overtook Eusebio in their country's list of top goal scorers.
In September, Ronaldo's hat trick during the Real Madrid's match against Northern Ireland in World Cup Qualification has given him a record of 43 goals in 106 matches for his country. Ronaldo has surpassed Eusebio's record of 41 goals in 64 matches.
The 71-year-old Portuguese footballer, nicknamed the Black Panther, expressed his feelings towards the news, and stated that it was unfair to be compared with Ronaldo because he played fewer matches for Portugal.
Ronaldo, on the other hand, also released a statement as reported by The Independent. "I think it is not worth feeling sad over the news, records are meant to be broken, we should not be sad," Ronaldo said. "I feel easy because Eusebio will be Eusebio and Cristiano will be Cristiano," Ronaldo added. "It is normal that people compare us but Eusebio should not feel sad because he will always be up there," Ronaldo said.
Meanwhile, aside from being busy with his football career, Ronald has also been reported doing some side hustles. He is currently working on global football competition game called The Game by Ronaldo, which will be released at the end of October. He has been busy promoting the said football game all over on his social media accounts at Facebook and Twitter.
Furthermore, Ronaldo's CR7 underwear collection will be available on Nov 1. His underwear collection is not limited to adults because he will also be releasing the said clothing line for young boys. He even launched an online competition where kids and young boys can upload their best, craziest and funniest picture showing their love for CR7. You want to know what the prize? Well, the winner would only meet Cristiano Ronaldo himself and watch him play during a match. Ladies, don't fret just yet because the first prize winner gets to bring a couple more people. Maybe you can ask your boys cousins to participate in the contest, and who knows, you might just got lucky and see Cristiano Ronaldo in the flesh. You can head on Ronaldo's Facebook account and find out how to join. Good luck!
