The 36-year-old superstar had a goal and a goal in the match that ended a few hours ago of MU. CR7’s brilliant performance not only helped the Red Devils climb to 6th place in the English Premier League, but also helped him have a more complete 2021.

Ronaldo has the first half of 2021 playing for Juventus. Although the Turin team did not win any major titles and only finished 4th in Serie A, the captain of the Portuguese team still ended the season with the title of top scorer in the highest league of pasta. At the same time, CR7 was also voted “The best striker in the tournament”.
Going to EURO 2020, Fernando Santos’ army could not defend the title when only stopping in the round of 16. Despite that, the 36-year-old striker is still the top scorer in the tournament. Not stopping, the superstar on the MU payroll also surpassed the legendary Miroslav Klose to become the number one goalscorer in the tournament’s history.

The incredible scoring performance in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers also helped the former Real Madrid star surpass the Iranian Ali Daei to become the player with the most international goals in history. Ronaldo also defeated the “King of Football” Pele to occupy the number one scorer in the history of football.

Ronaldo ended 2021 with 47 goals and 7 assists. On a personal level, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has clearly had a successful year. However, it will be more complete if his collective goals in 2022 become reality.
The striker born in 1985 will continue the English Premier League race in 2022 with Man Utd. The goal of the Red Devils is to finish in the Champions League group. In the European arena, Ronaldo and his teammates will find a way to go as deep as possible. Currently, United have reached the round of 16 and will face Atletico Madrid.

However, CR7’s biggest goal will be with the national team’s colors. Portugal failed to qualify for the World Cup from the group stage and was forced to look for opportunities in the play-off round. To realize its ambition to go to Qatar next winter, the “European Selecao” will have to beat Turkey and most likely the defending EURO champion Italy.

In just over two months, Ronaldo will turn 37 years old. There is not much time left on the top of glory for the former Juventus striker. The year 2022 will therefore be extremely meaningful and important for the greatest striker in the history of Portuguese football.
