‘Hard work pays’ – Ex-Nigeria striker Ezeji lauds ‘massive’ Ronaldo feat


The former striker has been singing the praises of the Portuguese star who joined Ali Daei at the top scorer list at international level

Former Nigeria international Victor Ezeji has described Cristiano Ronaldo’s record as ‘massive’ while attributing his achievement to hard work.

The 36-year-old bagged a brace as Portugal settled for a 2-2 draw against France in Wednesday’s blockbuster Euro 2020 encounter.

With that, he reached 109 career goals in 176 matches for his country, matching Iranian legend Ali Daei at the summit of the list of goalscorers on the international stage.

As this achievement continues to generate plenty of reaction on social media – including from Daei himself, the Nigeria Professional Football League legend is not left out in saluting the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star.

“It is a very feat massive for him. If we start counting records he has set or broken, we won’t stop until the end of the day,” Ezeji told Goal.
