Cristiano Ronaldo Euro 2024

Cristiano Ronaldo, aiming for his second European Championship and third international trophy, has had a quiet Euro 2024 so far. The 39-year-old forward is yet to score in the tournament, but hopes to turn things around in Portugal’s Round of 16 clash against Slovenia in Frankfurt on Monday.

Despite failing to find the net against the Czech Republic, Turkey, and Georgia, the Al-Nassr star provided an assist in the crucial 3-0 win over Turkey, securing Portugal’s spot in the knockout stages.

Ronaldo’s contributions go beyond scoring, as highlighted by his teammate, Bruno Fernandes. “For Cristiano Ronaldo, the most important thing is for the team to succeed,” Fernandes said at a press conference. “Whether he scores or assists, the goal is to win.”

Portugal, favored to win despite a 2-0 friendly loss to Slovenia in March, remains confident. Head coach Roberto Martinez acknowledged Slovenia’s organization and competitiveness, emphasizing the need for Portugal to be at their best. “It’s do or die,” Martinez stated. “We’re prepared and ready.”

Ronaldo, the top scorer in Euro history with 14 goals, is also the only player to have competed in six different editions of the tournament, from 2004 to 2024.
