There is no denying that any celebration is incomplete without a lip-smacking cake. And let’s admit who doesn’t like cake? Over time, this sweet treat has become an integral part of all the celebrations. So when Cristiano Ronaldo became the top scorer of 2023 with his 40th goal in Portugal’s win against Bosnia and Herzegovina, the celebration called for a cake. Abiding by the celebration rule, the players and staff of Al Nassr Football Club surprised Ronaldo with a cake. A video making rounds on the internet shows the players bringing him the cake on the field, following the match. The cake featured a delightful portrayal of Ronaldo, complete with his iconic jersey number 7. The text on the cake proudly displayed his impressive stats: “207 International caps, 127 goals, 40 goals in 2023.”
