Forward of the Portuguese national team, Cristiano Ronaldo assessed the team's journey in the EURO 2024 qualifiers.

«We are playing well, winning every match. I don't remember many easy qualification stages in my time with the team or even in the national team's history. Although I won't say 'easy' – it's because we made it so. Many people say it's because of the group. But we've had similar situations before, always having 2 or 3 strong teams, and it all came down to calculations.

I'm afraid I have to disagree with that opinion. Portugal advanced because we played well. We have a fantastic team and coach, and we earned our spot. Achieving our goal is not a coincidence.

I plan to play in the EURO 2024, although it's still far away. I hope I have no problems, like injuries or other difficulties. I hope to play,» the footballer told Record.

The Portuguese national team has secured their place in the European Championship by finishing in first place in Group J.
