“Messi can never”: Fans sing Cristiano Ronald’s praises after his unselfish play creates assist for Fernandes against Turkey

Cristiano Ronaldo made his first goal contribution at the 2024 UEFA European Championship by assisting Bruno Fernandes in Portugal’s commanding victory over Turkey on Saturday afternoon.

In his record-setting sixth Euros appearance, the 39-year-old delivered an excellent assist to his former Manchester United teammate, helping the Selecao secure their third goal and effectively clinch the match.

Rather than taking a close-range shot after being put through on goal, Ronaldo chose to pass to Fernandes, who easily scored into an open net.

According to talkSPORT, this assist enabled Ronaldo to surpass Karel Poborsky as the all-time leader in assists in European Championship history.

Although the Al-Nassr forward did not score, he received widespread praise for his unselfish play in setting up Fernandes.

Fans applaud Cristiano Ronaldo for his ‘unselfish’ assist

Fans flocked to X to praise the Al-Nassr forward, who has faced years of criticism for being selfish and not a team player.

@ACollebAn praised Cristiano for achieving his eighth assist in the history of the Euros:

“A Ronaldo assist. That’s actually makes it 8 assists at the Euros.”

@manuelphrimpz, on the other hand, waxed lyrical about CR7:

“Masterclass assist.”

@Nobody_holy aimed a dig at Ronaldo’s GOAT rival, Lionel Messi:

“Messi can never.”
