Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 7.5% of his 120 international goals for Portugal against Luxembourg.
Ronaldo, 38, is now at the stage of his career where every game could offer him a last chance to add to his incredible list of records and achievements, so extending his goal and appearance milestones will be at the top of his priority list.
Add in the dent to his professional pride of having to watch long-time rival Lionel Messi dominate, and win, the World Cup with Argentina, and Ronaldo could be forgiven for believing he had been sucked into a twilight zone, left to play out his days in the obscurity of the Saudi Pro League.
If he remains fit and is selected, Ronaldo will break the 200-game mark in the Euro 2024 qualifier against Iceland in Reykjavik on June 20, so that could yet spell the end of his international career if Martinez decides to start fresh next season.
But Ronaldo has made countless sacrifices to enjoy a remarkable career spanning two decades, so don’t discount his chances of remaining in the Portugal team right through to the Euro 2024 finals in Germany.
He will be 39 by then, with 18 months of life in the slow lane in Saudi Arabia behind him, but perhaps the move to Riyadh was another sacrifice with the end goal of extending his international career to the Euros.
Every game he plays sets an international record and every goal also counts, because his old rival Messi has now scored 99 for Argentina.
