The world’s most popular athlete, Cristiano Ronaldo has reflected on his success laden career saying he has nothing to prove to anyone as his success speaks for itself.
Ronaldo’s comments come after his latest goals at Sweden’s Friends Arena, becoming the second highest goalscorer in international football. Prior to the match on Tuesday, there were some speculation whether Portugal were ready to perform without Ronaldo, after Portugal demolished Croatia 4-1 in his absence, but the 35-year-old confidently brushed off those suggestions post-game, as his two goals ensured Portugal ran out 2-0 winners.
Two goals, his 100th and 101st at international level, secured a 2-0 win, adding to a hat-trick at the same stadium as Ronaldo single-handedly defeated Sweden in 2014 World Cup qualifying.
The Juventus forward who has won five ballon d’or awards, said afterwards: “I didn’t follow the comments. It’s an opinion.
“I knew I had left a mark at this stadium and I knew that, if I played, I would leave a mark again. I don’t care about provocations. What I have done in my career speaks for itself. No, I have to prove nothing to anyone, and when I have to prove it, I show it on the pitch.”
