Ronaldo Cements Legacy

The Euro finals results, that saw Portugal crowned champions for the first time in the country’s history have helped to solidify Ronaldo’s place as one of the greatest soccer talents of the century.

Not only winning the Euro, but setting scoring records as well.

Not as though he’s been unrecognized as such, Ronaldo’s trophy case at this point is borderline unfathomable, from Real Madrid’s website:

“The Real Madrid forward added to his impressive trophy collection with the European Championships win. It will be added to: 2 European Cups, 2 Club World Cups, 1 European Super Cup, 1 La Liga, 2 Copa del Rey, 1 Spanish Super Cup, 3 English League titles, 2 English Community shields and 2 English League Cups.

We must also add to his collection 3 ballon d’or, 1 FIFA World Player, 4 golden boots, 3 top scorers, FIFAPro world best player, 2 IFFHS best goal in the world awards, 1 best goal in Primera División, 1 silver ball at the Club World Cup, 1 Bravo award, 9 FIFA FIFPro World XI and 1 Puskas Award.”

Many are theorizing that due to Portugal’s Euro success and Argentina’s Copa America defeat that Ronaldo will have the edge over Lionel Messi in this year’s Ballon d’Or voting, despite the fact that last year the voting wasn’t even close.

What we can say for sure is that the major international title victory puts Cristiano Ronaldo in a stratosphere that few other athletes will ever hope to reach.

At 30 years old he’s likely feeling more invigorated than ever, which is something the entire La Liga should take note of.
