Cristiano Ronaldo vows to break more records

Reacting to winning the award, Ronaldo took to social media to thank his teammates, coaches, family, friends, and fans for supporting his football journey.

While sharing a photo of him with the award, the former Real Madrid and Juventus star vowed to continue to break more records.

"Proud to win the award for the best national scorer for the country that I love! Thanks again to all my teammates, coaches, my family, friends and all my fans who helped me to achieve this great achievement," he posted.
"Together we will continue to break all possible records! Thank you #Portugal," the Man United star added.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo will be hoping to add to his tally of goals for the national team during the upcoming international break.

Portugal are scheduled to play two fixtures in the Nations League, including a home tie against Spain on Tuesday, September 27.

Man United told they won't win anything with Ronaldo in the team

Earlier, Sports Brief reported Paul Merson has warned Manchester United that they will not win anything with Cristiano Ronaldo still in the team.

Ronaldo has had a slow start to the new season after a confusing summer that saw his future with the Red Devils plunged into uncertainty.

The Portuguese star has started just three matches so far this term, with Erik ten Hag preferring Marcus Rashford upfront.
