Ronaldo: I Always Knew I'd Be The First Player To Score 100 UCL Goals

Cristiano Ronald beat Lionel Messi to become the first player to score 100 goals in the UEFA Champions League, and the Real Madrid superstar admits he was always confident about reaching the milestone first.

The 32-year-old reached the historic milestone during Los Blancos' second leg clash against Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals, in a game where he netted a hat-trick.

However, the Portuguese insists he never doubted himself to beat his long-standing rival, Messi, who currently sits on 94 goals.

“I always believed I would be the first player in Champions League history to score 100 goals," Ronaldo told UEFA.com

“I did it. It was a goal that I set myself at the beginning of the season and, thanks to God, I achieved it.

“I would obviously like to thank all my team-mates, the coach, all the staff and all the Real Madrid fans."

Los Blancos will lock horns with Juventus in the Champions League final on Saturday evening.
