Congrats! Ronaldo wins Nations League Finals top scorer award with 3 goals

Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored a hat-trick in Portugal’s 3-1 victory over Switzerland in the semifinals, won the Top Scorer Trophy at the UEFA Nations League Finals here on Sunday.

Cristiano Ronaldo tells UEFA.com about righting a wrong from 2004 and why there’s more to come from Portugal. He said:

‘A lot of happiness! It was excellent, I’m very happy. Having won this trophy here in Portugal in front of the Portuguese people, for me this is a great honour.

The national team will continue, with or without Cristiano. I think the team has great potential. There are young players, players who over the years will become more mature and better.

I want to be part of this project because I feel good and I feel able to help the national team. But, as I said, I think the national team has the potential to continue to evolve and win more trophies.’
