I Break Records Naturally - Cristiano Ronaldo Brags  

Austin Papi

One of the greatest footballers of this generation, Cristiano Ronaldo, has insisted that he is not obsessed with breaking records.

He believes the record comes naturally for him. After scoring his landmark 700th career goal for both club and country, the Portugal national team captain has cemented his name in history as he is just 105 goals away from becoming the highest goalscorer in history of competitive football.

After the match, Cristiano was interviewed by reporters. When asked how he felt about his 700th career goal, he replied: "Not just anyone can reach this figure. Thank you to my team-mates, colleagues and coaches who have helped me to become the player I am.

"I am disappointed that we didn't win, but proud of the team."

When asked if he knew all the records he has broken, Ronaldo added:

"How many records do I have? I don't know. I have to enjoy the moment and thank those who helped me reach this impressive mark.

"The last time I played at this ground I won the Champions League, a beautiful moment that is in the past. Today we played well but couldn't win.

"Records come naturally - I don't go looking for them; records are looking for me! Without having an obsession, they happen naturally."

Ronaldo scored the conciliatory goal off the penalty spot in the second half in Portugal's 2-1 Euro 2020 qualifying defeat of Ukraine in Kiev on Monday night.

The defeat for Portugal at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev was a bittersweet occasion for Ronaldo. Although his goal moved him into a part of an elite list of players to have reached the milestone figure, but he was on the losing side.
