Ronaldo is the most capped player with 133 appearances, while he is also Selecao's all-time top scorer with 61 goals.

However, former Los Blancos winger, Luis Figo, who scored 32 goals in 127 appearances for Portugal believes Eusebio is the nation's greatest ever player.

When asked by AS how does Ronaldo compare to Eusebio, Figo said," “I never saw him play. But for everything he stands for, for the love he showed me, his friendship and his advice, I’d put Eusebio at number one.

"Everyone will say that I say that for this reason or that reason but ultimately it’s just about respect. Everyone makes history in their own time.”
