Many people believed that the appearance at the 2022 World Cup will be Cristiano Ronaldo’s swan song in the jersey of Portugal. But the Manchester United superstar has other ideas.

During a recent appearance on an event celebrating his feat of becoming the highest goalscorer in terms of international goals, Ronaldo said that his “road is not over yet.” He said that he wants to be part of the national team for a few more years and revealed he is eyeing a spot on Euro 2024 squad.

“I still feel motivated, my ambition is high,” Ronaldo said. “I’m in a team with young people. I want to be part of this World Cup and the European too; I’m going to assume that right away.”

Cristiano Ronaldo will be 39 once the Euro 2024 kicks off, but there is no denying that he will still be a great addition to the national team. Despite his age, Ronaldo demonstrated that he can be an impactful player, having scored 18 goals in Premier League last season.

Cristiano Ronaldo made his senior debut with the Portugal national football team in 2003 and has since made a total of 189 appearances while scoring 117 goals. He has been Portugal’s captain since 2007 and has since led them to one European Championship trophy and one UEFA Nations League title.
