In the 87th minute of the match, which ended in a goalless draw, the “Madeira missile” – at the age of 36 – was able to travel a distance of 92 meters (from the penalty area of his country to the penalty area of the Spanish team) within 10 seconds, and this is an unprecedented number for the time of the match, the age of the player and the recorded number .

After one of Ronaldo’s colleagues managed to extract the ball from the opponent and started a counter-attack, Ronaldo ran as fast as he could to reach the penalty area of the Spain team in an attempt to get the ball, but the defense of the “Matador” team saved the ball and returned it to the latter’s goalkeeper.
