By this feat, the Juventus forward proved his relevance in top-flight football and sparked a new round of questions from his dumbfounded critics.

Speaking in a post-match interview, the Juventus forward explained his secret to success, saying that “it’s all down to hard work, focus and readiness for big games.”

In his words, ‘I love to be 100% fit and mentally strong so the success goes to my work ethic…I feel strong, healthy and full of potentials despite my age.’

The 34-year-old continued, ‘Success comes from within…And one’s mental alertness is very important to reach the peak of any career and stay successful.’

When asked about his candid advice to younger players, Ronaldo said: ‘Keep your head up, feel motivated and stay happy at all times…This has been my path to success and you can do the same.

‘There’s still so much to offer to football—I think—and I’m ready for whatever it takes.’

Portugal will play against the Netherlands on Sunday, and football pundits expect the final of UEFA Nations League to be an interesting match with unending surprises.

‘The Netherlands have been excellent in their campaign. They have played together a long time and I have watched more of their recent video clips. They have quality players in their squad and the wealth of football experience makes them exceptional.

‘I’m sure they [the Netherlands] will be tough to defeat but it’s the same for Portugal…I look forward to a great finals.’
