The five times world best player, Cristiano Ronaldo recently acknowledged that he has aged, during an interaction with a cameraman om a post-match interview.



The 38-year-old forward helped Portugal beat Iceland 1-0 in the UEFA Euro 2024 qualifiers on June 20. He scored in the 89th minute to secure a fourth win in as many games for A Selecao in the qualifiers in what was his landmark 200th international game.

During a post-match interview, a cameraman appeared to zoom in on Cristiano Ronaldo's face a bit too much. The Portuguese icon responded (via India Shorts):

“Not too close, eh! Too many wrinkles!”

The Al-Nassr forward made his debut for Portugal in August 2003 against Kazakhstan. Twenty years later, he has become one of the greatest players of all time.The game against Iceland was a record-breaking one for Cristiano Ronaldo, who became the first men's player to register 200 appearances in international football. He's also the all-time top scorer in international football with 123 goals for Portugal.
