‘Best in the world’ – Fernando Santos praises Cristiano Ronaldo after brace vs Switzerland

Cristiano Ronaldo took his international tally of goals to 117 last night.

Portugal proved too strong for Switzerland as they won 4-0 in the Nations League.

Although Ronaldo missed United’s last game of the season against Crystal Palace due to injury, the 37-year-old was fit enough to start against Switzerland on Sunday night. The veteran was brought back into the team after being benched in the last game versus Spain.

Speaking about Ronaldo’s heroics after scoring a brace against Switzerland, Portugal manager Fernando Santos said (via Manchester Evening News): “The captain is the best in the world.

“He arrives. When you say he’s the best in the world… how many more words are needed? I’ve said this I don’t know how many times.

“These exhibits are nothing out of the ordinary. Support from fans? He’s captain of the team, he’s the ultimate example.”
