Cristiano Ronaldo and a new challenge with the national team

The Portugal team faces Luxembourg, one of the victims of Cristiano Ronaldo, who has managed to score six goals so far. The Portuguese team will dispute this commitment in search of the leadership of Group A, for the qualifying rounds to Qatar 2022.

It should be remembered that last season for CR7 was not one of his best and that the Portuguese during his stay at Juventus seemed to lose importance and level of play despite shining in some important games with the club. However, after his return to Manchester United the Portuguese has regained his smile.

With Cristiano Ronaldo at his best, Portugal is one of the main beneficiaries, who knows that he has a great soccer star and a born scorer.

So far, the Portuguese has five goals with the Red Devils and three goals in the last two games with Portugal, these numbers allow Fernando Santos to be quite optimistic about the game against Luxembourg, one of the favorite victims of the United striker, so expected to see him score one or more goals.

Luxembourg and Cristiano Ronaldo

CR7 scoring against Luxembourg

The history of the Portuguese against this team is quite good, and it is that the Portuguese has managed to score six goals of his 112 goals with the selection, which is why the rival of Portugal can become an easy prey for them, where CR7 can increase his number as a historical scorer for the national team and thus continue to expand his personal record.

In the same way, CR7 will reach its 182 official international matches, so it is closer to Kuwaiti Al-Mutuwa, who has 186 matches, for which it has the record of having worn a country's shirt more times, one A figure that will only be a matter of months for Ronaldo to surpass it and add a new personal record.

It is quite clear that Portugal must win whether they want to or not, since this will be the only thing that allows them to continue fighting for the first place in Group A, which is currently led by Serbia, who at the moment have one point more than them, who face Azerbaijan on this new FIFA date.

But it should be noted that this team has one more game than Portugal, so they can easily pass it if they continue to win.
