Cristiano Ronaldo's comment on an Instagram post

After comments like "this Sunday, the King will play" and  "FACTOS", Cristiano Ronaldo once again gave his 600 million plus followers on Instagram something to talk about. However, this time he did not write any words, rather let the emoticons do the talking.


On a post that featured Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Erling Haaland, the top 3 ranked footballers according to MELHORES De 2023, Cristiano Ronaldo crashed onto it with a reaction that may in turn derive polarized reaction from the other users of the platform. Ronaldo left three laughing emojis and a "sea no evil" emoji.

Cristiano Ronaldo finishes 2023 as the topmost goal-scorer

After a forgetful 2022, Cristiano Ronaldo has made an emphatic comeback to the block. The goal drought took the form of goal flow, and the iconic footballer went back to his phenomenal goal-scoring ways. Playing for Saudi Pro League club Al Nassr and national side Portugal, Ronaldo has achieved a unique feat by breaching the 50-goal mark at the age of 38. With EURO 2024 approaching, the form of Cristiano Ronaldo is an ideal taking for the Portuguese side and if he keeps netting the goals then once again the football world will witness his name at the forefront of many rankings.
