Cristiano Ronaldo wants European Championship glory AGAIN with Portugal as Fernando Santos’ side-plot back-to-back titles… with the Juventus man claiming Euro 2016 victory is the ‘most important trophy I’ve won in my life’

Cristiano Ronaldo has his sights set on winning back-to-back European Championships with Portugal this summer.

The iconic Portuguese forward was memorably in tears after his side defeated France 1-0 in the Euro 2016 final after limping in the 25th minute.

Fernando Santos’ squad are among the favorites to keep their crown five years later, with a squad brimming with quality, and they hope, along with Spain, to be the only other country to win consecutive European Championships.

“I have spoken before about what an important moment that European Football Championship victory was for the Portuguese team and for the country,” said Ronaldo, who is currently an Official Global Brand Ambassador for live score.

“We were so proud to take home the trophy. It was very emotional.

“It would be incredible to win it again, and of course we go into the tournament with that as our ambition, we have a good team, but we also know there are a lot of very strong teams.”

That night in Paris was bittersweet for Ronaldo after suffering a first-half match break.

The 36-year-old usually thrives on being the main man, but while he has led his clubs to many of the top trophies over the past 15 years, he considers winning Euro 2016 to be his most enjoyable piece of silverware.

“Well, the start of Euro 2016 went well for me, but then I was sad because I got injured (in the final against France).

“Towards the end of the game I cried with happiness. I experienced three kinds of feelings and emotions in that game, but at the end of the day it was incredible what I felt. It’s probably the most important trophy I’ve won in my life.’
