The Portuguese star is set to feature in his 6th European Championship

Cristiano Ronaldo has been an inspiration for all of us. The man has proved time and time again that with hard work and relentless work ethic, you can achieve everything. He is 39 years old and has left Europe, but still going strong. Cristiano Ronaldo, despite his age, is scoring goals week and week out.

He seems to prove the famous quote that ‘age is just a number’ time and time again with his performances on the football field. Questions have been raised that if it is time now for him to retire from football. However, he has shown every time that he has still plenty to offer on the football field.

Now, he is set to lead Portugal in yet another UEFA Euro. He is determined to leave his mark in the UEFA Euro 2024 and take his team to yet another title after he won his first in 2016. Ronaldo was disappointed after a heartbreak in the FIFA World Cup 2022 and that caused doubts on his international future. However, he has worked hard since then and has scored countless goals to make himself available for the UEFA Euro 2024.

Cristiano Ronaldo is set to start against Czech Republic in the UEFA Euro 2024

Portugal is ready to kick off their campaign in Euro 2024 with their opening game against Czech Republic. Cristiano Ronaldo is just not in the Portugal squad for the sake of it. He is the leader of the team and will definitely start in the striker position in the opening game against Czechia.

Ronaldo will be determined to leave his footprints in the opening game itself and take one of the most talented teams in the tournament to a good start in the tournament. Ronaldo is not written off; he wants to prove a point after the critics called him finished post the horrendous show in the FIFA World Cup 2022.

Portugal for the last decade has been overly dependent on CR7. He is the highest scorer in international football and has 130 goals and 40 assists from the 207 games that he has played. However, Portugal do have an all-star squad now and are not overly dependent on their star man.

However, he will still have the main role in the team by looking to score goals and take Portugal past the winning line. He is to start that journey by playing in the opening game against Czech Republic in the UEFA Euro 2024.
