Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is resolute in his quest to create further history at the European Championships this summer. At 39, the seasoned forward believes his team is deserving of another significant international trophy, following their victory in Euro 2016. Portugal commences their campaign against the Czech Republic in Leipzig on Tuesday, with Ronaldo poised to make his sixth consecutive Euros appearance, extending his record. Under Roberto Martinez, the team achieved a flawless qualification record and is expected to smoothly advance from Group F, which includes Turkey and Georgia. Ronaldo, speaking to the media upon his arrival in Germany, expressed his belief that this generation of players deserves to triumph in such a prestigious competition, aiming for the Henri Delaunay trophy. Despite his injury in the 2016 final against France, which saw Eder clinch victory for Portugal in extra time, Ronaldo now plays in Saudi Arabia for Al-Nassr, where he recently scored twice against the Republic of Ireland, boosting his international goal tally to 130. His 14 goals in the Euros make him the tournament's leading scorer, surpassing Michel Platini. Ronaldo's Euros journey began in 2004, where he scored on his debut against eventual winners Greece, and he has scored in every subsequent edition. With 25 appearances, missing only one game across five tournaments, Ronaldo could become the oldest Euros goal scorer if he scores in Germany, breaking the record set by Austria's Ivica Vastic in 2008. Ronaldo emphasizes that records are a natural outcome of his love for football, and his focus is on enjoying his sixth Euros and contributing to team success. Despite being dropped for the last two matches of Portugal's 2022 World Cup campaign, Ronaldo remains a key player, starting every qualifier he was available for and scoring eight goals. Despite his extensive international career and record 207 caps, Ronaldo still experiences pre-match nerves, which he views as a positive sign of his ongoing motivation. His ambition is a driving force for his teammates, with Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot expressing confidence in following Ronaldo's lead to achieve success. While Portugal is a favorite to win, the Czech Republic has not advanced beyond the quarter-finals in 20 years. The Czechs, like Portugal, have won the Euros once, in 1976 as Czechoslovakia. Their three-man defense, led by Tomas Holes of Slavia Prague, faces a daunting task in containing Ronaldo. One of Ronaldo's remaining challenges is to score a hat-trick at the Euros, last accomplished by Spain's David Villa in 2008.
