Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo has taken another step forward in his renwoned charity efforts, after his latest kind gesture of sending boots to the entire Portugal U17 women’s side that reached the elite round of Euro 2020 qualification, megasportsarena.com reports.
The former Sporting Lisbon, Manchester United and Real Madrid star, who won the European Championships in 2016 with Portugal and the Nations League in the summer, rewarded the team after they beat Latvia 4-0 thanks to a hat-trick by Ines Oliveira, and the players were excited, as they read his letter out loud and admitted they were delighted to see the boots.
Ronaldo wrote in his letter to the team: “I send you these Mercurial Dream Speed boots in the hope that they help you reach your dream.
“When I was a child I had a simple but very crazy dream. No, it wasn’t the type of dream that you have when you are sleeping. This was one of those dreams that you want so much that it keeps you awake at night.
“I wanted to become the best footballer in the world. I dedicated my life to my dream – in the gym, on the training pitch – doing everything necessary to make it possible. It’s so important to have a dream. It’s even more important to work hard to reach it.
“I realised my dream and I hope you can realise yours too. Pursue them without hesitation. If I did it, you can do it too. Congratulations on qualifying for the elite round. Stay focused and keep your eyes on the next victory. Good luck and enjoy these boots.”
