And days after making such a statement, a photo of himself and that of the joint all-time international record goalscorer has surfaced on the internet.
Mr Macaroni who shared the photo-shopped photo on Facebook wrote:
“I said I wanted to meet Cristiano Ronaldo some days ago. Just imagine the pictures I saw.”

“You sha met him one way or the other. Hope you told him he’s doing well.”
“And u forgot to give me credit for taking the pictures.”
Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe will become the most dominant name in football after the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, according to Barcelona legend Samuel Eto'o, Caught Offside reports.
The Paris Saint-Germain striker over the years has shown that he is a future contender for the Ballon d'Or and the Cameroon icon believes the 22-year-old will set the pace for others to follow.
Eto'o was Messi's teammate for a couple of years during his spell at the Camp Nou dubbed Mbappe as the new god of the beautiful game.
Mbappe by his standards had a quiet Euro 2020 as he failed to score in all of the four matches played for France. The world champions were knocked out of the competition by Switzerland in the round of 16 via penalties.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Lionel Messi grabbed a brace in Argentina's 4-1 win against Bolivia at the Copa America to take his international goals tally to 75.
The 34-year-old is now joint number nine top scorer in international football alongside Sandor Kocsis, Kunishige Kamamoto and Bashar Abdullah.
But he is still far behind the number one position as prolific scorers Ali Daei and Cristiano Ronaldo top the list of highest scorers in the world at the international level with 109 goals each.
