One of the ways to relax as a sportsman is…
Cristiano Ronaldo had a great game against Spain last night and his performance, scoring a hat trick against Spain in a game that ended 3-3 will be remembered for a long time to come.
However, during the game, the commentator kept referring to a “Ronaldo record” which is that he is the first player to score in 8 successive major tournaments.
However, leading Ghanaian journalist, Michael Oti Adjei, did some research and tweeted what he found:
Heard commentator say Ronaldo is the first player to score at eight successive major tournaments so I decided to check on
2006 World Cup
2010 Afcon |
2010 World Cup
2014 World Cup
So, there you have it folks, Ghana Asamoah Gyan’s stats has proven that this record attributed to Cristiano Ronaldo is false.
Of course, he remains a great player but we should be clear about facts.
