Cristiano Ronaldo has set his sights on reaching Euro 2024, and the Manchester United and Portugal forward has stated that he has no plans to retire anytime soon.

“My journey isn’t over yet; you’ll have to put up with ‘Cris’ for a while longer,” Ronaldo said on Tuesday after receiving a trophy at the Portuguese Football Federation’s (FPF) Quinas de Ouro awards in Lisbon for being the all-time leading national team goalscorer.

“I want to play in the World Cup and the Euros… I am extremely motivated. My ambition is enormous “said the 37-year-old.

Ronaldo has 117 goals in 189 Portugal appearances and is set to play in his 10th major international tournament in Qatar in 2022.

The forward’s brace against the Republic of Ireland in September 2021 enabled him to surpass Iranian great Ali Daei’s 109-goal haul as the all-time leading international scorer.

Despite speculation that he would leave Manchester United this summer, Ronaldo stayed, and despite being benched for Premier League matches, he scored in the team’s last Europa League outing against Moldovan minnows FC Sheriff.
