Portugal beats Turkey with Cristiano Ronaldo once again

3 min read

During Portugal’s 3-0 victory over Turkey in the final match of their Euro 2024 qualifiers on Saturday, Cristiano Ronaldo was once again called upon to write his name in history for the Portuguese national team.

As a result of Ronaldo’s assist, he became the highest assist provider in the history of the Euros, a tournament that began in 1968.

In Portugal’s 3-0 rout of Turkey on Saturday, five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo provided an assist for Bruno Fernandes in an attempt to complete the rout. Ronaldo has now assisted seven times in his career.

At halftime, Portugal had already been leading 2-0 through goals from Bernardo Silva and Samet Akaydin, but in the 56th minute, after Ronaldo chose to pass to Fernandes, the home side made it 3-0 thanks to Ronaldo’s passing to Fernandes.

Earlier this week, the Al Nassr striker came one step closer to becoming the first player to appear at six European Championship tournaments, having taken part in the opening game of the tournament against the Czech Republic and scoring a 2-1 victory.

Having made his Euro debut in 2004, and subsequently reaching the final of the tournament, the legendary Portuguese footballer is already the most successful player in the history of the tournament. He also holds the record for the most goals (14) at the tournament, and his appearances were extended to 26.

A joint top scorer at Euro 2020 was Ronaldo, who scored five times – the same number as Patrik Schick, a forward from the Czech Republic.

As an 18-year-old playing for Luiz Felipe Scolari’s Portuguese national side for the first time under the Brazilian head coach, this former Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus striker scored 130 goals in 208 matches since his debut for Portugal as an 18-year-old.
