Cristiano Ronaldo keeps setting records

Real Madrid had already benefitted from Cristiano Ronaldo‘s explosive start to 2018, but now Portugal have enjoyed some of the No.7’s great form as well.

He scored twice against Egypt on Friday night to take his tally for the year to 23 goals from 14 outings.

Records continue to be broken wherever Ronaldo is involved, as he now has 81 international goals, the third most of all time.

Looking at the 21 matches played since he helped his nation win Euro 2016, Ronaldo has represented Portugal in 15 of them and he has scored 20 times, while providing four assists.

That means he has been directly responsible for 51 percent of the goals that Portugal have scored in those 15 fixtures.

Only twice in this 15-match run has he failed to participate in a goal, once in the Confederations Cup semi-final against Chile and once against Switzerland in a World Cup qualifier.

“Ronaldo means goals,” the country’s coach Fernando Santos said after the most recent match, the win over Egypt.

He really does, for both Real Madrid and Portugal.
