For many years now, Cristiano Ronaldo and records have gone hand in hand. In the most recent FIFA World Cup 2022, the 37-year-old became the first player to score in all five tournaments, setting a new record.
The event will most likely be Ronaldo’s final World Cup, so the player seems extra eager to win it. This was evident by the fact that Cristiano entered the FIFA World Cup by scoring the 700th club goal.
Portugal has already scored a 3-2 win against Ghana, and a win today versus Uruguay will secure their qualification. The player recently released an Instagram post that said this is only the beginning and there are no impossibilities.
For a man who has set numerous standalone records, the statement seems justified. However, the player alone cannot secure the World Cup, which was quite clear during the match against Ghana.
Rafael and Joao had to complement Ronaldo to secure the close victory. Even the goal scored by the player came from a penalty and not through individual brilliance. Cristiano, on the other hand, did not appear to care, as evidenced by his celebrations.
Uruguay is coming into the match with a goalless draw against South Korea. On the other hand, Portugal will be hampered by Danilo’s absence due to an injury sustained during training. Pepe, the renowned center-back, will most likely replace Danilo.
Although Portugal does not appear to be the hot favorite, the team packs the potency to win most games. FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, being Ronaldo’s likely final World Cup, might be motivation enough to push the team over its limit. On the other hand, many top FIFA betting sites and experts believes that Ronaldo will look forward to winning the FIFA World cup.
