Cristiano Ronaldo will be wearing his 2012 stats on his boots against Real Socieded on Sunday, a day before the Ballon d’Or is given out. Though the message is a little too late the books will highlight his outstanding statistics that he was able to achieve during the 2011-2012 season. The boot will feature 7 numbers (because he is number 7) which are 1, 9, 14, 19, 27, 55, and 60. The attacker as of late has taken a backseat to the fame due to the incredible numbers Lionel Messi has put up which are inhuman. Though Ronaldo’s are not as good as Messi’s they should still be acknowledged and CR7 feels like what better way to remind the world of my talent by putting them on my boots. The meaning of the numbers follows below.
-1st Spanish league title
-9 goals scored for Portugal
-14 games played for the national team
-19 first player to score against all 19 rival teams competing in La Liga in a season
-27 years old in 2012
-55 matches played in all competitions for club
-60 goals scored in all competitions for club
Here are some pictures of the boot which Nike has released. It has not been released whether Lionel Messi does the same (joke).
