Ranking of scorers in Europe: Lewandowski, France and the others


We shouldn’t just rely on him

With a sumptuous free kick, the Portuguese restored the advantage to his team, permanently. Not unlike his hat-trick against Spain during the last World Cup, which he also concluded with a direct free kick, CR7 scored his second hat-trick in four league days, to hide the misery of Manchester United. « We shouldn’t just rely on him“, also regretted the interim coach Ralf Rangnick after the meeting.

However, everything had started well for the Red Devils, with a two-goal advantage after thirty minutes thanks to the diabolical efficiency of the fivefold Ballon d’Or. The latter was first well helped by an offering from Anthony Elanga after a very high recovery and an error from the Canaries. « Ronaldo will be showered with praise for his hat-trick, and rightly so, but he was helped a lot« , lamented Norwich coach Dean Smith after the match. Then, completing the panoply of the complete goalscorer for the break goal, Ronaldo came with a perfect whim to give his team a two-goal lead.

A comeback season with 24 goals

And then United collapsed, leaving Norwich to come back at 2-2. The partners of a Paul Pogba heckled by the Mancunian supporters had all the trouble in the world to put their heads back in place. But they have a « top player » in their ranks, as David De Gea pointed out for the BBC: « Cristiano scored three goals today, he always tries to be on top for the team. We know we are not playing well at the moment, but we are satisfied with these three points. »

Once again in the role of « game changer » on the Mancunian side, CR7 quickly evacuated the torments he experienced this week after his too violent frustration last week. Three new goals that take his tally to 24 this season, and 18 in the league, making him the second top scorer in the Premier League behind Mohamed Salah. As long as the English club will play like this, inevitably Cristiano Ronaldo will have to continue to wear the costume of savior. And prove that the solution is him.
