    I wonder why doesnt he do that often? He is more than capable to thread passes like that but its rare to see him try it. Ive seen people saying Hazard is better than him . Hazard for all the dribbling skills that he possess he cant pass like that

    What a performance. Not only he scored hattrick, his goals are all top quality, and he is dribbling like he is 25 years old. Amazing.

    He was very good, took all his goals superbly. He is so good that he makes others around him look better with his movement, converting half chances and also making poor passes look good.

    B.Silva's pass was not good but it was Ronaldo's anticipation and acceleration that resulted in chance creation and goal. Hopefully they will win the Nations league.

    His second goal is ridiculous. I think it's much harder to pull off than the freekick and the stepover one.

    All the sportsmen and women you have mentioned are up there as the best or nearly the best in THEIR SPORT of all time, thats exactly the point i'm making. Im not saying they the best athletes of all time, i'm talking only in the context of football players. I was just using Michael Jordan and Fed as examples of Sportsmen who's Goat status is only solidified by their longevity.

    Those you have mentioned aren't the average/normal athletes. Although i agree that players last longer these days than they did in the past, the length Messi and Ronaldo have lasted AT THE TOP and i stress "At the top" is not normal. A good 3-4 years at the top would be impressive but these two have done it for about a decade or longer. A name i hear thrown around is Brazilian Ronaldo as someone potentially better than Messi and C.Ronaldo. It makes no sense to me as he was only really at the top for 3-4 years max. He doesn't hold a candle to Messi and C.Ronaldo in terms of longevity. By the same token Maradonna being talked in the same breath as Messi and Ronaldo for a fantastic world cup and a few seasons for Napoli shouldn't be in contention as the greatest IMO.

    How about we give Juve Pogba and ask Ronaldo and joao Cancelo in return.

    Not a bad year for Ronaldo:
    - Serie A title
    - Italian Super Cup
    - Nations league (Portugal)
    - Player of the Year in Serie A
    - Top goalscorer in Nations league

    Sarri coming in should see his numbers go up next season, not sure it affects their CL chances in a positive manner though and a last CL title with Juve is really the only thing missing to be able to end his career with a flawless legacy.

    He scored only 3 goals isn't it? Nations league started long back and as per UEFA site it's Mitrovic.

    No need to make things up to strengthen his year. At least FIVE players scored more goals than he did at the Nations League.

    He’s obviously talking about the Nations League Finals top scorer.

    I meant NL final? It’s weird to also include all qualifiers, as they never count it this way with WC and Euro?

    So the Nations league is just from Semi finals and finals? I have no idea as I didn't check the format. Always though many teams played nations league.

    So if all those are qualifiers, then Nations league proper starts from Semi Finals?

    He's laughing because CR clearly isn't the Nations League topscorer. It seems like they again made some weird stat ranking just to make him feel great - not the first time.
    Can't wait for the World Cup GS and World Cup Finals having separate stats
    thats gonna be
    GREAT

    Just let them cope with things however they're able to do so.

    After the past three years it's the least a person can do.

    It depends how you see the first set of fixtures, you could argue they are more like the qualifiers than the group stage I guess?

    I do agree though it’s reaching, ultimately its being top goal scorer over two games.

    Have you guys seen the stat that he’s been doing the rounds today ?

    Since a Ronaldo vacated the no 7 shirt, there had been 5 subsequent players who have filled it. They have only scored 15 premier league goals between them.

    It’s like the shirt is cursed since him
