I Still Have The Passion For The Game And To Score Goals :Cristiano Ronaldo

by Kolkata Today

Portuguese football super star Cristiano Ronaldo has been awarded the FIFA Special The Best Award. Recognised for becoming the highest-scoring male in international football history.

“A very special award for a unique player,” said FIFA President Gianni Infantino as he handed over The Best FIFA Special Award to Ronaldo at The Best FIFA Football Awards™ in Zurich on Monday night.

“It is a dream,” Cristiano Ronaldo began. “First of all, I have to say thank you to my teammates in the national team in the last 20 years that I used to play with.

I never thought about beating that record, of scoring 115. The record was 109, right? So I’m six ahead. I am so proud. It is a special award from FIFA an organisation I respect a lot. I also have to thank my family. Soon I will be a father again. I am proud. It is great to be the goalscorer of all time.Have to say thank you to my old team-mates from 2004, when I started to play for the national team, until now. And, of course, I have to say thank you to my family: my wife, my kids.

I still have the passion for the game and to score goals. I play football since I was five years old. When I go to the pitch, even in training, my motivation is still there.”

“Sacrifice,” he said. “Without sacrifice you can’t achieve anything. I started to play at the top level when I was 18 and I’ve been at the top for 15, 16 years. It’s down to my dedication, my passion, my ambition and working hard all the time. This is why I’ve continued to be at the top of the world in terms of performance, trophies, goals, records.

I love the game. I still have that passion. I want to continue. People ask me sometimes how many more years I’m going to play and I say I hope to play another four, five years. It’s all mental because I think that if you treat your body [well], when you need your body it’s going to give it back.”

The patriot also dedicated his prize to his country. “I know I make the Portuguese people proud,” said the Manchester United forward. “This award is for them and the country as well. I have appreciated the motivation they give me since I started to play for the national team.

It’s always a pleasure to play for your country, for your flag, for your family. It’s unbelievable. Every time I put the Portuguese shirt on I feel so emotional, so happy. It’s a great feeling.”

Cristiano Ronaldo, who helped Portugal conquer the UEFA EURO in 2016 and the UEFA Nations League three years later, now wants to lead them to one of few trophies missing from his extraordinary collection: the FIFA World Cup.
