CR7 ‘Always Knew’ He’d Beat Messi to CL 100 Goals
Ronaldo ‘always believed’ he would beat Messi to 100 Champions League goals
Real Madrid talisman Cristiano Ronaldo “always believed” that he would be the first man to net 100 Champions League goals.
The Portuguese forward became a centurion during the second leg of a quarter-final clash with Bayern Munich – a game in which he netted a match-winning hat-trick.
He told UEFA ahead of a Champions League final clash with Juventus: “I always believed I would be the first player in Champions League history to score 100 goals.
“I did it. It was a goal that I set myself at the beginning of the season and, thanks to God, I achieved it.
“I would obviously like to thank all my team-mates, the coach, all the staff and all the Real Madrid fans.”
