Ronaldo has never been shy to reveal his muscular physique after scoring goals, as he did after celebrating his second international strike in the semi-final against the Netherlands at Euro 2004.

The youngster escaped slack Dutch marking to head Portugal into a first-half lead. Nuno Maniche made it 2-0 and despite a Jorge Andrade own-goal, Portugal held on to reach the final.

Ronaldo was substituted after 67 minutes for the more defensive Petit but by then the damage had already been done.

The lifting of his shirt remains a staple in Ronaldo’s celebratory repertoire and in 2009 it was claimed that he performs 3000 sit-ups a day to maintain his impressive physique.
