London, May 23: Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo has said that he expects England to win at least one of the major tournaments.
“I always expect England to win a big tournament. England have some of the best players in the world and are always tough opponents for any team,” The Sun quoted Ronaldo, as saying.
After scoring a career-best 46 Spanish league goals this season and helping Real Madrid dethrone Barcelona to land a historic La Liga title, his next agenda is to lead Portugal to glory in the European Championship finals.
“I hope England do well in the Euros because I have a lot of friends there. It is a country I like a lot. I expect big things for England, the new coach and the country,” Ronaldo added.
Like Portugal, England have never won the trophy, which baffled the Portuguese footballer, who spent six seasons winning everything at Manchester United.
“Let’s see what England do in the Euros. Their chances of winning are still the same. England have fantastic players but now, with a new coach, it would be amazing,” he said. (ANI)
