Scored important goals for this nation to secure world cup qualification.
I've noticed he is a very different person when he plays for Portugal than for Madrid. At Madrid the objective of winning the game is often clouded by his desire to be a footballing icon, whereas at Portugal he is much more focused on securing the 3 points. The world cup is essentially the only major trophy he has yet to win, and i know we'll be aspiring for it. The 2018 he will throw everything at getting it, which will be interesting to see.
