Cristiano Ronaldo again! On Thursday, he rewrote another milestone. Thanks to his start in the match against Liechtenstein, he has become a leader in the table of matches played in the national team’s jersey. Harry Kane also reached a significant milestone, becoming the top scorer in the English national team’s history.
The owner of five Ballon d’Ors has once again broken another record. In the match against Liechtenstein, he made his 197th appearance in the national jersey, thus claiming another first for himself.
He also scored twice in the qualifying match for EURO 2024. Thanks to these hits, he reached another milestone. In the national jersey, he has already hit the net hundreds of times. He has been scoring goals regularly for 20 years in a row. Unbelievable.
The Portuguese is currently in a great mood again. He also confirmed this at the pre-match press conference, where he admitted that he hasn’t had the ideal time of his life at Manchester United. “I am a better person now,” he said with a certain amount of confidence.
Ronaldo, however, is not the only footballer who will be talked about in relation to goals scored after Thursday’s games. Harry Kane has also made his mark in the annals, having become the Albion national team’s all-time top scorer.
With his 54th goal for the national team, he topped the scorers’ table. He is currently one goal ahead of Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney.
Kane himself praised the team’s performance after the game. He was most pleased with how his teammates handled the match. “A dream is becoming a reality, ” he added on his personal achievement.
The English side is thus looking to forget the setback of the last World Cup. In Naples, they managed a 2-1 victory over home side Italy. Although they played the match without the suspended Luke Shaw from the 80th minute, they did not allow the score to change.
