This Friday, February 5, 2021, the Portuguese ace Cristiano Ronaldo reaches the age of 36, in full form and with a lot of football to go on impressing the world of sport for some time, precisely on the day when another star, Brazilian Neymar Júnior reaches 29 years of age.
One of the greatest players in the history of football, Cristiano Ronaldo was born on February 5, 1985 in Funchal, on the island of Madeira. There, he began his brilliant career, playing in the youth divisions for the local clubs Andorinha and Nacional da Madeira.
In 1997, he moved to Sporting Clube de Portugal, and in Lisbon he continued his debut in professional football in 2001.
Two years later, at Manchester United, he started the journey that would take him to the top of the world and in a few years, playing for the English club, for Real Madrid, for the National Team of Portugal and, more recently, for Juventus, Cristiano Ronaldo also starred in that one which was considered the most beautiful goal of his entire career, reproduced in a sculpture that can be seen in a hotel in the Algarve, by the sculptor Carlos Correia and which CR7 saw and enjoyed on the eve of the game in which Portugal played Lithuania, in 14 November 2019, and won 6-0, with Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick.
With a name and phenomenal football, CR7 reaches the age of 36 looking like someone who still seems far from hanging up his boots. Also on Friday (5), the great Brazilian star of today, Neymar Júnior, celebrates 29 years of age – a coincidence in terms of birth dates that is still extremely interesting.
