Euro is about to kick off in France. This is a good opportunity for the two superstars set a new record of the tournament, and a dream to match or exceed another record of Michel Platini.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo were among seven players holding the achievements scored in three consecutive Euro period.
Of these, Nuno Gomes (Portugal), Thierry Henry (France), Jurgen Klinsmann (Germany) and Vladimir Smicer (Czech Republic) have retired. Helder Postiga is not in Portugal lineup Euro 2016. Ibrahimovic and Ronaldo, therefore, will compete to become the first player to score in four consecutive Euros.
Both the Portugal and Sweden stars are with each with six goals in the Euro finals.
Ibrahimovic and Ronaldo : the chance to conquer the record is open to them at Euro 2016.
Specifically, Ibrahimovic had two goals in each of the three tournament last time, to hit the net Bulgaria, Italy (2004), Greece, Spain (2008) and Ukraine, France (2012).
Ronaldo; after two goals at Euro 2004, through Greece and the Netherlands; scored only one goal in the next period with the Czech Republic in Euro 2008. But in 2012, he scored three goals, two with the Netherlands and one against the Czech Republic.
With each having a record of six goals, Ronaldo and Ibrahimovic are both less than three goals of the world record held by Michel Platini that has existed for over 30 years. The France soccer legend has nine goals, all scored in the 1984.
Scored at least three goals in France this summer is not too big challenge with the two superstar Portugal and Switzerland. Ronaldo for the last few years has become more and more dangerous as a scoring forwarder, instead of just kicking off as before. Ibrahimovic is getting older, but they say “the older spicy ginger.” He just spent the best years of his career with 50 goals for PSG in the last season.
