Ronaldo Nazario: One of the greatest goalscorers of all time
Ronaldo Nazario was born in Bento Ribeiro, a low-income family in Rio de Janeiro. At twelve years old, he started playing football as a junior with the local Social Ramos Club. Two years later, he joined São Cristóvão in the Carioca League.
He plays for Cruzeiro in the Brazilian league in 1992. Before making his debut for the national team in 1994, he played for Brazil’s under-17 South American squad in 1991.
After being traded from Cruzeiro to PSV Eindhoven in 1994, Ronaldo won the 1995 league title and the 1996 Dutch Cup while scoring 55 goals in 56 games. During the 1996–97 season, he moved to FC Barcelona of Spain, where he scored 34 goals in 37 games and assisted his team in winning the Spanish Super Cup.
Ronaldo’s brilliance led to Inter Milan paying him a huge fee of $27 million to play for the Italian team in 1997. His dribbling skills and goal-scoring prowess at Inter earned him the nickname “Il Fenomeno.” Ronaldo made history in 1997 by becoming the first player to win FIFA Player of the Year twice in a row.
He helped Brazil win its fifth World Cup title in 2002 by scoring 8 goals to take home the Golden Shoe trophy as the best scorer. Then he declared his plan to go from Inter to Real Madrid in Spain.
Real finally agreed to pay a transfer price of $46.3 million. Ronaldo Nazario won the titles of Euro Footballer of the Year in 2002 as well as FIFA Player of the Year in 1997. He scored 3 goals at the 2006 World Cup to boost his total goal tally to a record 15 goals (a record that was surpassed in 2014 by Germany’s Klose).
About Virat Kohli: One of the finest & most popular cricketers of this generation
While India has come up with many great cricket players. But none have been as ambitious as Virat Kohli. It set him apart from other cricket players. Also, Kohli emerged as the most reliable batter of all time. He completes huge chases and figures out, in his own words, the safest way to score runs.
This desire came naturally into his leadership style. Virat Kohli led Team India to a big tenure at the top of the Test rankings and their first-ever series win in Australia. He was very demanding of his quick bowlers and sacrificed a batsman for bowling depth. He will become the most successful Test captain in India, no doubt about it.
Kohli scored hundreds in Tests against every nation he played in, except Bangladesh. To attain eight, nine, ten, and 11000 ODI runs, he broke records for several matches. His 49 ODI and 51 Test 100 records posed a real threat to Tendulkar.
When Kohli first came into the spotlight, he was an Under-19 World Cup captain. Virat was a great talent with a terrific cover drive. As the Tendulkar era began to come to a close, Kohli was bound to be India’s next great batter. Kohli wanted to be a player the other teams would be afraid of. A player whose presence would make the game more intense.
He made sure he had the strength and fitness to compete every moment, live every ball, and relive every moment.
