Ronaldo: My favourite goal...

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo admits his favourite goal is his ‘last one’ and that his wish is to have played with Portugal legend Eusebio.

Ronaldo was speaking to YouTube channel Soccer.com, which asked him a series of quick-fire questions.

“That’s difficult...” he replied when recalling his pick of over 700 career goals.

“To mention one, I have like... 700 goals. I’m always going to say the [easiest] one, my last one.

“It’s not the most beautiful one, I know, but goals are always important so the last one. And the next one will be more important, for sure.

“In my mind I have many players I wish to play with, but I’ll mention one from my country who died a few years ago – Eusebio.

“He’s one of the sons of Portugal and I wish to play with him because he’s Portuguese, he was an unbelievable person and I wish I could play with him in the national team.”

The 34-year-old then revealed the origins of his famous celebration, his preferred choice of career if he was not a footballer and his favourite film.

“Well I was in the US and we played against Chelsea and I don’t know where it came from. I just scored and I went, ‘siuuuu!’

“But it was natural, to be honest. After that I started doing it and I feel like the fans, when they see me they’re like ‘siuuuu’ and I was like, ‘wow, people remember Cristiano because of the siuuuu,’ so I continued like that.

“Actor, or maybe model. I don’t know. I don’t know if I have the talent [to act] but I always says, when you work and dedicate you can achieve everything.

“My favourite movie... I’m more of a documentary guy but Silence of the Lambs. I know it’s an old movie, 34-35 years old, but I like drama.”
