Photos: Cristiano Ronaldo puts own goal stats stitched onto boots


The numbers 1, 9, 14, 19, 27, 55, 60 are stitched onto the side of Ronaldo’s sparkling boots, with each carefully selected from his year of success.The 1 refers to his first La Liga title with Real Madrid, the 9 and 14 being his amount of goals and games for Portugal. The 19 is the record-breaking number of opponents Ronaldo has scored against while the 27 was his age last year. But the most incredible and standout numbers are the last two – 55 and 60 – referring to his amazing goal tally in 2012, when Ronaldo found the net 60 times in just 55 matches.

According to Ronaldo: ‘Last season was a very special one for me, helping my team and country achieve success. It’s great to celebrate these achievements and also have a great pair of boots to recognise the moment,’ he said. ’I’ll enjoy playing in them for sure.’
