Cristiano Ronaldo became the highest goalscorer in Portugal’s history after scoring two more in the 5-1 win over Cameroon. This was a friendly match that gave manager Paulo Bento the opportunity to test some of the players. However, Ronaldo was at his usual best after he scored two more goals to reach 49 goals in just 110 appearances for the national team. This is more than any other player has achieved in Portugal’s history. After achieving this landmark, the Real Madrid superstar said that records come to him naturally as he has broken several in the last decade.
Former PSG striker Pauleta held the previous record by scoring 47 in 88 matches for the national team. Ronaldo recently won the FIFA Ballon d’Or award for the second time in his career. He says that he is not going onto the pitch with the sole motivation of breaking records. However, his dedication, effort, and the quality of the national team means that he was going to break the record at one time or the other. Ronaldo is very close to breaking the record of Portugal legend Luis Figo’s appearance record of 127 senior caps.
It was a comfortable win for Portugal, who have qualified for the World Cup 2014 through the play-offs after beating Sweden. Ronaldo was once again the star of the show by scoring all four goals in the 4-2 aggregate win.
“I do not look to beat records. This happens naturally, with a lot of effort, dedication, with the excellent national team we have, a good coach. I knew that sooner or later it was going to happen,” said Ronaldo. The 28-year-old has already scored more than 35 goals in just 34 appearances for Real Madrid this season. He is top of the goal scoring charts in Spain.

Manchester City will be hosting Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium on December 26 in what will be the most anticipated and important matches before the end of 2013. Liverpool could not ask for a better moment for the match to arrive as their Uruguayan superstar Luis Suarez is firing from all cylinders and just making incredible performances each week, which has helped Liverpool fight for their place at the top of the Premier League.
The team of Manuel Pellegrini will be coming into the match in a perfect form as they defeated Bayern Munich and Arsenal some weeks ago which has lifted the spirit of the team and they will be hoping to continue with the momentum going on as they have to play in their home turf.
Liverpool does has however a huge advantage over Manchester City as they have available to play their main star Luis Suarez who continued pushing his club to glory and victory with a 3-1 victory against Cardiff City in the Premier League and Suarez managed to score 2 goals as well as providing the assist for the last goal.
Manchester City on the other hand have to deal without having their main attacking man as Sergio Aguero is out due to an injury he picked up recently that will leave the Argentinean on the sidelines for the remainder of the year.
Johnson – Agger – Sakho– Flanagan
Henderson – Lucas
Sterling – Allen – Coutinho
Zabaleta – Lescott – Nasatasic – Clichy
Nasri – Fernandinho– Silva
Manchester City still remains undefeated when playing at their home stadium having claimed 8 victories and no losses so far, this will be a tough task for Liverpool to face. Both teams are in sensational form as they are at the top of the Premier League with Liverpool being ahead by only 1 point.
The side of Brendan Rodgers will be depending on Luis Suarez to perform his magic once more, giving him plenty of resting time prior to the match and enough space in the midfield for him to make an impact on the match and considering the fact that Manchester City is the team in the Premier League that has conceded more goals out of the top 5 teams in the league, the Uruguayan will surely find his way into the defence of Manchester City.
Manuel Pellegrini’s team should still be able to edge their way and claim the triumph against a team that is depending just way too much on Suarez.
