Ronaldo to strike the titlist’s international record of 109 goals?
The legend of Iran had been a motivational potion for Cristiano Ronaldo to strike and bang the international record of 109 goals in 149 matches by the world’s all-time leading scorer.
Ronaldo has scored 102 goals for Portugal in all competitions and has eight goals ahead of Iranian legend Ali Daei as the leading scorer of the world.
On watching the motivational side of Ronaldo who is also famously known as “monster”, Ali Daei commented that he would be privileged to congratulate Ronaldo if he could beat and crack his record.
Ali Daei’s loss of job:
You might be pondering that how could a legend footballer be a team coach ended up losing his job? Why did not Ali’s incredible image and amazing skills prevented him from being forced out?
Daei was sacked as the team’s coach after Iran’s 2-1 defeat by Saudi Arabia in a crucial World Cup qualifier at Tehran at Azadi Stadium.
The match was witnessed by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of Iran, who allegedly contributed to his dismissal and ouster. Unfortunately, Ali Daei has found that he has no defence in the discharge.
Ahmadinejad hoped the victory would bring him political funding ahead of the June presidential election. The desire to score points through propaganda even led the President’s supporters to pay him during Iran’s 1-0 lead.
But the excitement and Daei’s fate were closed when a large text message was sent to the followers that Daei’s has been forced out due to public opinion. Seriously? Are public opinion and political funding superior to one’s dedication and efforts?
Fifa has suspended Iran from international matches over allegations of government involvement in the match. This sounds heart-breaking! Isn’t it?
Despite being forced out by the government, Ali Daei still rules over the hearts of the entire world. Why? Because he made himself a champion due to his endeavour and undertaking.
We hope that this prompting potion was effective in rousing and influencing you all that self-awareness is the important ingredient to be a champion of life. No matter what outsiders think of you, all you need to do is moving ahead along with courage and honesty.
