Big name Big task…..Yeh!!!
Yes I am talking about “Ronaldo Luiz Nazario da Silva” means yours’ and mine the only one RONALDO “9” yeh….
Why I am so happy ?????
Because he wears “9” and “9” is my Lucky number…….
Only occasionally can the bare facts and figures of a player’s career convey the sheer talent that they possess. Ronaldo Luiz Nazario da Silva is quite simply one of the greatest strikers in the history of world football, capable of leaving an entire team for dead with his darting runs and dribbling ability, voted FIFA World Player of the Year on three occasions and already a double FIFA World Cup™ winner. These honours are merely the tip of the iceberg in the record-breaking career of the man they call ‘The Phenomenon’.
Having been a member of the FIFA World Cup-winning Brazil squad in 1994, the prodigiously talented teenager joined Dutch side PSV Eindhoven in the same year. In only two years at the club, he scored 54 goals in a mere 57 games – an incredible average of just under a goal every game….Gosh Gosh and Gosh,
In 2002, he moved back to Spain with Real Madrid and the then Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari gambled on the forward’s return to form and fitness by calling him up to Brazil’s FIFA World Cup squad. No one could have predicted a better outcome. Not only had Brazil won their fifth FIFA World Cup, but the ‘Phenomenon’ was the tournament’s top scorer, netting eight goals in only seven games. Only Pele has netted as many goals for Brazil in the competition’s history – both players having scored 12 times.
And this time Ronaldo was looking to surpass that figure as well as overhaul Gerd Muller’s long-standing 14-goal record as top scorer in the history of the FIFA World Cup. And he has done that wooooooooo…
Ronaldo inscribed his name into football's history books on Tuesday 27th June 2006 by scoring a record-breaking 15th FIFA World Cup™ goal to take him clear of Gerd Muller as the tournament's all-time top marksman.
