Brazil Legend Backs CR7 For International Glory

Brazil legend, Rivaldo, believes Portugal are capable of wining the European Championship with Cristiano Ronaldo, who he labels as the best in the world.

The Real Madrid superstar has often failed to replicate his club form for Portugal at major tournaments, most notably the past two FIFA World Cups.

The closest Ronaldo came to collecting major silverware at international level was in 2004, when Portugal were beaten 1-0 in the European Championship final in Lisbon.

While, Portugal's best performance at a World Cup during Ronaldo's career was a fourth place finish at the 2006 edition in Germany.

However, Rivaldo believes the Portuguese are more than capable of winning a major trophy with the "best player in the world".

"The Portuguese team can be champions of Europe or even the world with Ronaldo. I think they are very close," Rivaldo told Jornal de Noticias.

"Portugal always has good campaigns in Europe and anything can happen because the best player in the world is Portuguese."

Ronaldo has made 121 appearances for the Portugal national side and country's top all-time top scorer with 55 goals.
