Ronaldo wincast

Real Madrid and Portuguese superstar Ronaldo is simply unplayable at his best and boasts some frightening stats on international duty.

The Portugal captain has netted a dozen goals in his last six caps for Fernando Santos’ side.

With the opposing Aztecs still relying on 38-year-old skipper Rafael Marquez as a key component of their spine, it is highly unlikely they will keep Ronaldo out.
