Quiz! Can you name every country Cristiano Ronaldo has scored against?
I see pride. I see power. I see a bad-ass mother, who don’t take no crap from Ali Daei.
At least we assume that’s what Cristiano Ronaldo – who presumably holds a higher opinion of Cool Runnings than Michael Owen – coos to himself each morning. If not, he should.
After his four-goal haul for Portugal in midweek, the Juventus forward is now only 16 goals behind all-time international goalscoring leader Ali Daei – the Iranian legend who once scored against Chelsea and spent his international career bullying the likes of Laos and Guam.
“Yes, I think Ronaldo will beat my record,” Daei sighed to A Bola this week. “He is a great player, no doubt, and it seems to me that it will happen.”
And so to this magic quizzing hour. We’re looking for every team Ronaldo has ever scored against for Portugal – 40 of them – meaning many of the answers below will earn you multiple points. Eight minutes are on the clock for you to have a crack and then tell us your scores @FourFourTwo – retweets up for grabs…
