This is not the first time that Ronaldo has expressed his dissatisfaction with drinking soda. Last year at the Global Soccer Awards. He even revealed that he had previously scolded his son Cristiano Jr for drinking Coca-Cola and Fanta. ”
I’m tough on him sometimes because he drinks Coca-Cola and Fanta sometimes and that annoys me. I argue with him when he eats chips and fries and everything, he knows I don’t like it.
Even my youngest children, when they eat chocolate, they always look at me before, ”Ronaldo said.
The top scorer of Euro 2020
Meanwhile, on the pitch, Ronaldo made history in the Euro 2020 Group F game against Hungary on Tuesday. The Portuguese captain scored twice to become the top scorer in Euro history with 11 goals.
Ronaldo, therefore, played a crucial role in Portugal’s 3-0 victory over Hungary. This allows Portugal to start their title defense on a high note.
Before the game, Ronaldo was tied with Michel Platini, who had scored 9 goals in the European Championship. After struggling for almost 80 minutes in the game, Ronaldo managed to score a penalty in the 87th minute to achieve the feat.
A few minutes later, Ronaldo scored a magnificent goal in added time to extend his lead and seal the game for Portugal.
A magnificent journey for the star who does not lend an ear to detractors who reproach him for his action against Coca-cola. It remains to be seen whether the brand will file a complaint against Cristiano Ronaldo formally before UEFA or decide to ignore it.
UEFA, organizer of the Euro, in any case, told CheckNews that “no disciplinary proceedings would be opened against Cristiano Ronaldo”. And the European body to specify that “everyone is free to drink the drinks he prefers”. The controversy swells despite everything on social networks.
