Legends of Football - Ronaldo Portrait

Had some time this week to continue with my Legends of Football series. The second portrait in the series is the greatest number 9 I have seen in my lifetime and has to be one of the greatest ever - Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima.

Ronaldo made his international debut for Brazil in a friendly against Argentina in 1994. He then went to the World Cup in 1998, largely renowned as the world's greatest player. He played his final game for Brazil in a specially arranged match, having scored 62 international goals in 98 appearances. Despite it being almost unheard of in international football for players to be given a farewell match for their national side, Brazilian Football Confederation officials stated that given the extraordinary career of Ronaldo, it was only fitting that his final game should take place in Brazil while representing his nation.

Ronaldo played for club sides Cruzeiro, PSV, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Real Madrid, AC Milan and Corinthians, scoring a total of 352 goals in 518 appearances. 

If you have any ideas for club legends for your team, let me know! I'd like to make this into a bit of a series! :)
