It happened during the crucial Portugal vs France Euro 2020 match, Cristiano Ronaldo moved one goal away from becoming eternal. 

Cristiano Ronaldo is getting dangerously closer to becoming eternal after his goal against France this evening. Let’s put some context into what happened. If Cristiano Ronaldo’s side lost tonight, they would become a contender for the best third place of the Euro 2020. However, they wanted to get a victory by any means necessary. After Kylian Mbappe tested Rui Patricio with a brilliant one-on-one won by the keeper, Ronaldo’s time approached.

During a set-piece for Portugal, Hugo Lloris was spared from getting a red card after knocking Danilo completely out with his forearm. It was obviously a penalty but Lloris only saw a yellow card. Fortunately, Danilo didn’t suffer any serious physical problems despite the massive blow to his jaw. After the Portugal defender left the pitch, it was Cristiano’s turn to deliver from the spot against one of his most elusive rivals on the international level. 

Ronaldo moves one step closer to eternal glory. 

As he stood in front of Hugo Lloris, Cristiano Ronaldo sprinted towards the ball and took a shot to the other side of the goalie. He scored a massive goal that moves him closer to becoming eternal with an outrageous all-time record. At 108 goals, Cris is only one goal away from reaching the most international goals in football history.

He did it on his 178th cap for Portugal, which is only two less than Sergio Ramos as the all-time most capped European player in history. Plus, Ronaldo already has four goals in this tournament as he remains at the top of the goal-scoring table. Regardless of how Portugal does tonight, Cristiano Ronaldo already left his impression at the Euro 2020.
