Guerreiro: Ronaldo has never been better than this

Cristiano Ronaldo is enjoying the best moment of his career after scoring 15 goals in a World Cup qualifier with Portugal, according to teammate Raphael Guerreiro.

Real Madrid star Ronaldo scored nearly half of Portugal's 32 goals but did not break through the net when they won 2-0 over Switzerland in a match that ensured the European champions finished top of the group.

And defender Borussia Dortmund, Guerreiro, told SFR Sport that the captain had never been in a better form before.

"You see what he gives on the pitch - he runs to help the team, so of course he is someone we rely on," he said.

"I think he's entered the best era of his career, he's really top in the last two years and he keeps running, but it's only natural because he's so hard working on the pitch I'm not surprised at what he can do now."

"Although it was not his best match, he was able to give the players confidence he is the most important player in the team, and he gives extra confidence to other players. (sfr / rer)
