01 Who Is Cristiano Ronaldo?(谁是C罗?)

Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro is a Portuguese soccer superstar. By 2003 — when he was just 16 years old — Manchester United paid £12 million (over $14 million U.S. dollars) to sign him, a record fee for a player of his age.

C罗是葡萄牙足球巨星。到2003年,当他只有16岁的时候,曼联支付了1200万英镑(超过1400万美元)签下他,这是他这个年龄段球员的最高签约金。

In the 2004 FA Cup final, Ronaldo scored Manchester's first three goals and helped them capture the championship. He set a franchise record for goals scored in 2008, before Real Madrid paid a record $131 million for his services the following year.

在2004年的足总杯决赛中,C罗打进了曼彻斯特队的前三个进球,帮助他们夺得了冠军。他在2008年创造了进球纪录,之后皇家马德里在第二年为他的进球支付了创纪录的1.31亿美元。

Among his many accomplishments, he has won a record-tying five Ballon d'Or awards for player of the year, and led Portugal to an emotional victory in the 2016 European Championship. In July 2018, Ronaldo embarked on a new phase of his career by signing with Italian Serie A club Juventus.

在他的诸多成就中,他创纪录地获得了五项金球奖,并且带领葡萄牙在2016年欧洲杯上取得了激动人心的胜利。2018年7月,C罗与意甲俱乐部尤文图斯签约,开始了他职业生涯的新阶段。

02 Early Life(早期生活)

Ronaldo was born on February 5, 1985, in Funchal, Madeira, Portugal, a small island off the western coast of the country. Ronaldo is the youngest of four children born to Maria Dolores dos Santos and José Dinis Aveiro. He was named after Ronald Reagan, one of his father's favorite actors.

C罗于1985年2月5日出生于丰沙尔,马德拉,葡萄牙西海岸的一个小岛。C罗是玛丽亚 · 多洛雷斯 · 多斯桑托斯和何塞 · 迪尼斯 · 阿维罗四个孩子中最小的一个。他的名字取自罗纳德 · 里根,他父亲最喜欢的演员之一。

Ronaldo grew up in a largely working class neighborhood in a small tin-roofed home that overlooked the ocean. Ronaldo was introduced to the game of soccer through his dad, who worked as an equipment manager at a boy's club.

C罗成长于一个以工人阶级为主的社区,在一个可以俯瞰大海的锡制屋顶的小房子里。C罗是通过他在一家男子俱乐部担任设备经理的父亲了解足球的。

His early life was shaped by hardship, as his father often drank too much. To help keep the children fed and maintain some financial stability, Ronaldo's mother worked as a cook and cleaning person.

他早年的生活是艰苦的,因为他父亲经常酗酒。为了帮助孩子们吃饱喝足,维持一定的经济稳定,C罗的母亲做起了厨师和清洁工。

In 2005, when Ronaldo was playing for Manchester United, his father died from alcohol-related kidney problems; in 2007, his mother struggled with breast cancer. The former was especially hard for Ronaldo since he and his dad had been close.

2005年,当C罗为曼联效力时,他的父亲死于与酒精有关的肾脏问题; 2007年,他的母亲与乳腺癌作斗争。前者对C罗来说尤其困难,因为他和他的父亲一直很亲密。

The young athlete had often pushed for his father to enter rehab and address his drinking. His father, however, never accepted the offer.

这位年轻的运动员经常敦促他的父亲进入康复中心,解决他的酗酒问题。然而,他的父亲从未接受这个提议。

By the time he was 10 years old, Ronaldo was already recognized as a phenomenon — a kid who ate, slept and drank soccer. "All he wanted to do as a boy was play football," his godfather, Fernao Sousa, recalled for British reporters, adding, "He loved the game so much he'd miss meals or escape out of his bedroom window with a ball when he was supposed to be doing his homework."

在他10岁的时候,C罗已经被认为是一个现象ーー一个吃饭、睡觉和足球的孩子。“他小时候只想踢足球,”他的教父费尔诺 · 索萨(Fernao Sousa)在接受英国记者采访时回忆道。他还说,“他太喜欢踢足球了,以至于错过了吃饭的时间,或者在本该做作业的时候,带着一个球从卧室窗户逃走了。”

By his early teens, Ronaldo's talent and legend had grown considerably. After a stint with Nacional da liha da Madeira, he signed with Sporting Portugal in 2001.

在他十几岁的时候,C罗的天赋和传奇已经成长了很多。在为马德拉国家体育队效力一段时间后,他于2001年与葡萄牙竞技队签约。

03 Soccer Career(足球事业)

Manchester United(曼联)

In 2001, when Ronaldo was just 16 years old, Manchester United paid more than £12 million to sign him — a record fee for a player of his age.

2001年,当C罗只有16岁时,曼联为签下他支付了超过1200万美元的费用,创下了他这个年龄段球员的新纪录。

Ronaldo had turned heads with a mesmerizing performance with Portugal against Manchester, wowing even his opponents with his footwork and deft skill. He made such an impression that a number of United players asked their manager to try and sign the young player, which the team soon did.

C罗在葡萄牙对阵曼彻斯特的比赛中的精彩表现吸引了很多人的目光,他的步法和娴熟的技巧甚至让他的对手都为之惊叹。他给人留下了这样的印象,以至于很多曼联球员要求他们的主教练尝试签下这名年轻球员,球队很快就签下了他。

Ronaldo did not disappoint the soccer world: He showed his promise early on in the 2004 FA Cup final, scoring the team's first three goals and helping them capture the championship. In 2007, Ronaldo signed a five-year, £31 million contract.

C罗没有让足球界失望: 他在2004年足总杯决赛初期就展示了自己的潜力,打进了球队的前三个进球,并帮助球队夺得了冠军。2007年,C罗签订了一份为期5年、价值3100万美元的合同。

A year later, Ronaldo again justified his high salary when he put together one of the club's finest seasons in history, setting a franchise record for goals scored (42), and earning himself the FIFA World Player of the Year honor for 2008. In all, Ronaldo helped steer Manchester United to three premier league titles.

一年后,C罗再次证明了他的高薪是合理的,他打造了俱乐部历史上最好的赛季之一,创造了进球纪录(42球) ,并为自己赢得了2008年的国际足联世界足球先生。总的来说,C罗帮助曼联获得了三次英超冠军。

Real Madrid(皇家马德里)

In 2009, the Spanish soccer club Real Madrid agreed to pay Manchester United a record $131 million for the chance to sign Ronaldo. Ronaldo’s commitment to Manchester United had come under constant question, and speculation swirled that he wanted to play elsewhere, so nobody was all that surprised to see Ronaldo leave.

2009年,西班牙皇家马德里足球俱乐部同意向曼联支付创纪录的1.31亿美元,以换取签下C罗的机会。C罗对曼联的承诺一直受到质疑,人们纷纷猜测他想去别的地方踢球,所以没有人对C罗的离开感到惊讶。

"I know that they are going to demand a lot of me to be successful at the club and I know that I'm going to have much more pressure than at Manchester United because I was there for many years," Ronaldo told reporters. "But it means a new challenge and is going to help me be the best footballer."

C罗告诉记者: “我知道他们会要求我在俱乐部取得成功,我也知道我会比在曼联时承受更大的压力,因为我在那里待了很多年。”。“但这意味着一个新的挑战,它将帮助我成为最好的足球运动员。”

Ronaldo went on to compile an impressive list of individual honors and team trophies. In December 2016, he won his fourth Ballon d'Or award as the sport's player of the year, beating out FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi.

C罗接着编制了一份令人印象深刻的个人荣誉和团队奖杯清单。2016年12月,他击败巴塞罗那足球俱乐部的梅西,第四次获得金球奖。

Ronaldo’s 2016 wins included the European Championship, Champions League and Club World Cup, plus individual awards from UEFA and France Football magazine. The following year, he claimed a fifth Ballon d'Or to tie the mark held by his longtime rival, Messi.

C罗2016年的胜利包括欧洲冠军杯、欧洲冠军联赛和世界俱乐部杯,以及来自欧足联和法国足球杂志的个人奖项。第二年,他宣布第五个金球奖的得主是他的老对手梅西。

Juventus(尤文图斯)

After dropping hints that his time with Real was coming to an end, Ronaldo confirmed the rumors in July 2018 by signing with Italian Serie A club Juventus, which paid a $140 million transfer fee to his old Spanish club.

在暗示他在皇马的日子即将结束后,C罗于2018年7月与意甲俱乐部尤文图斯签约,证实了这一传言。尤文图斯向他的老西班牙俱乐部支付了1.4亿美元的转会费。

Ronaldo paid tribute to Real fans in an open letter on the club's website, writing: "These years at Real Madrid and in this city of Madrid have quite possibly been the happiest years of my life. I only have feelings of great gratitude to this club, to the fans and to the city. I can only give thanks to all of them for the love and affection that I have received."

C罗在俱乐部网站上的一封公开信中向皇马球迷致敬,信中写道: “在皇马和马德里这座城市的这些年很可能是我一生中最快乐的时光。我只对这家俱乐部、球迷和这座城市怀有深深的感激之情。我只能感谢他们所有人给予我的爱和关怀。”

By most measures, Ronaldo's debut season with Juventus was a successful one. He scored 10 times in his first 14 games, and headed home the lone goal in a win over AC Milan for the Supercoppa Italiana trophy. After leading his club to its eighth consecutive Serie A title, he was named the league's MVP in May 2019.

从大多数方面来看,C罗在尤文图斯的处子赛季是一个成功的赛季。在他的前14场比赛中,他进了10个球,并在战胜 AC 米兰的比赛中头球破门,最终赢得了意大利超级盃奖杯。在带领他的俱乐部连续八年获得意甲冠军后,他在2019年5月被评为联盟最有价值球员。

Return to Manchester United(回到曼联)

On August 27, 2021, it was announced that Ronaldo would return to Manchester United.

2021年8月27日,C罗宣布将重返曼联。

Portugal National Team(葡萄牙国家队)

On July 10, 2016, Ronaldo added an emotional victory to his collection. As his national team's captain, Ronaldo led Portugal to the European Championship final against France.

2016年7月10日,C罗为他的收藏品增添了一个感人的胜利。作为国家队队长,C罗带领葡萄牙队在欧洲杯决赛中对阵法国队。

Although he was sidelined after suffering a knee injury 25 minutes into the match, Portugal went on to win the championship title 1-0, their first international trophy. Ronaldo's teammates said that he motivated them as team captain from the sidelines.

尽管他在比赛开始25分钟因膝盖受伤而缺席,葡萄牙还是以1-0的比分赢得了冠军,这是他们的第一个国际冠军奖杯。C罗的队友说,他在场边激励他们成为队长。

"He gave us a lot of confidence and he said, 'Listen people, I'm sure we will win this Euro so stay together and fight for it,’” fullback Cedric Soares said after Portugal’s victory.

“他给了我们很大的信心,他说,‘听着人们,我相信我们会赢得这次欧洲杯,所以我们要团结起来,为欧洲杯而战,’”后卫塞德里克 · 苏亚雷斯在葡萄牙获胜后说。

"This is one of the happiest moments in my career,” Ronaldo commented. ”I’ve always said I wanted to win a trophy with the national team and make history. And I did it. Thank God, things went well for us."

“这是我职业生涯中最快乐的时刻之一,”C罗评论道我一直说我想和国家队一起赢得奖杯,创造历史。我做到了。感谢上帝,我们一切都很顺利。”

Ronaldo got off to a tremendous start at the 2018 World Cup, blasting home three goals in an opening draw vs. Spain, before adding another vs. Morocco to set a European record with his 85th international goal.

C罗在2018年世界杯上有了一个惊人的开局,在对阵西班牙的比赛中首开纪录地攻入三球,之后又在对阵摩洛哥的比赛中攻入一球,创造了他的第85粒国际比赛进球的欧洲纪录。

However, he was held scoreless in a 2-1 loss to Uruguay in the knockout stage, after which he declined to comment on his future with the national team.

然而,在淘汰赛阶段1-2输给乌拉圭的比赛中,他没有得分,之后他拒绝就他在国家队的未来发表评论。
