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
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.
