5 Major records that Cristiano Ronaldo can break in the near future
Cristiano Ronaldo has taken to loving the life at Juventus, breaking records left, right and center. His recent move to Serie A from La Liga hasn't put a break on his goal-scoring streak and while he did take a few matches to get into the groove both domestically and in Europe, he has adapted well to the physically taxing nature of the Italian League.
With his twilight years fast approaching, ushering the final few years of a phenomenal and legendary career spread across some of the best teams in Europe, his every goal is virtually a new record. But there are still a few records that he would be vying to break in the next few seasons with Juventus.
5. Most Goals in European Championships (Finals+Qualifying)
In 2016, Cristiano Ronaldo finally saw success with Portugal to win his and Portugal's first major international trophy ever. After the painful defeat in the 2004 final at home soil, he finally led his team to European success in France against great odds.
On the individual front, he went on to match Michael Platini's record for most goals in the tournament finals (excluding the qualifying stage) of 9. You won't put it beyond him to add a few more goals to his tally in 2020.
With 2020 Euro qualifications beginning next year, he would also be gunning for Robbie Keane's record for most goals in the qualifying phase of the continental tournament. With 20 goals to his name already, he is just 3 goals behind the Irish legend.
He hasn't featured in the Portuguese squad ever since the World Cup but national coach Santos has already mentioned that he is very much part of his plans and you can be sure he would be motivated as always to show his goal-scoring prowess.
