The 36-year old left jaws dropping when he scored from a spectacular overhead kick with Juventus keeper Gianluigi Buffon being rooted to his spot in goal. “As you know, I have scored 777 goals in my career," he said, adding. "It is a bit unlucky but unfortunately, I have to mention that I scored my favourite ever goal against my current team, Juventus, and past my great friend Gianluigi Buffon! I would say that is my best and favourite goal that I’ve ever scored in my career."
Ronaldo also spoke about winning the upcoming Euro 2020, "It was very emotional. To win it again would be incredible, and of course, we go to the tournament with that as our ambition. We have a good team but also we know there are a lot of very strong teams there.” Portugal would play Spain tomorrow in a friendly match and then take on Israel on June 10, before beginning their Euro 2020 campaign against Hungary on June 15.
