The Juventus forward has shown no signs of slowing his goal output, finishing the 2019-20 season with 31 goals and a second Serie A title before firing in 12 in 10 league appearances this term.
In 2020, he became the fourth player in the history of Italy’s top flight to score 33 goals in a calendar year after Omar Sivori (33 in 1961), Gunnar Nordahl (36 in 1950) and Felice Borel (41 in 1933).
That tally puts him top of the goalscoring charts in Europe’s top five leagues this year, ahead of The Best FIFA Men’s Player award winner Robert Lewandowski (32).
Portugal captain, Ronaldo, will be 37 by the time the 2022 World Cup kicks off in Qatar but hinted that he intends to be there.
“It doesn’t matter the age. What is important is the mind,” Ronaldo told BBC Sport, after being named Player of the Century at the Globe Soccer Awards this week.
