Human Gestation[edit]

The article states: "In April 1999, Ronaldo married female Brazilian footballer Milene Domingues, at the time pregnant with the couple's first son, Ronald ... The couple had a son, Ronald (born in Milan, on 6 April 2000)." So, my question, women are carrying babies for 12 months now? They married in April 1999, she was pregnant with their first son, and then that first son was born twelve months later. Something is not quite right here. 68.147.179.172 (talk) 21:25, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Brazil Team Section[edit]

someone has vandalized the 1997 team list. please edit. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 117.198.224.166 (talk) 22:31, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Honours section[edit]

The honours section only acknowledges the bronze medal at the '96 Olympic Games. Can someone expand this to include the other things he won, especially including the World Cup. I'm unsure whether personal acheivements (Golden Shoe, World player of the year etc.) and domestic competitions won (I'm sure he'll have won the Copa Libertadores, Champions League, national leagues and cups some time in his career) etc. but I know for definite he hasn't just won a bronze in the Atlanta Olympics. Richard n 00:36, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

Date of birth[edit]

According to the article, he was born on September 18th, but is listed on September 22, which is the correct one? On his PlayStation game "Ronaldo V-Football" his bio states that his birthday is September 22 (September 18 is incorrect) The article should be corrected.85.27.11.201 (talk) 11:47, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

See the above talk about Date of Birth, why the confuse.. September 22 is the correct one according to FIFA, Iv'e fixed it now, here is few refs for it aswell, [1] [2]
  – HonorTheKing (talk) 12:06, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
Please see the section above. His father had to collect money and delayed for 4 days after Ronaldo's birth to register him, so 18 September is the correct one. Matthew_hk tc 16:27, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
And it discussed before, see talk archive. Matthew_hk tc 16:43, 15 February 2011 (UTC)

What proof are there for that the authors statement is true? Is that anthing that has been confirmed by Ronaldo himself? Karbuncle (talk) 19:45, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Surname[edit]

His surname is "Nazário de Lima", as his father is "Nélio Nazário de Lima", while his mother is "Sônia dos Santos Barata" aka "Sônia Barata Nazário de Lima". The "Nazário de Lima" may came from the composite of grandfather and grandma surname but no source could verify it. So, Template:Portuguese name isn't suitable.

Edit request from 83.174.34.4, 21 April 2011[edit]

In the article about Ronaldo, the great Brazilian footballer, his birthdate is said to be September 18 1976. However, in the same article in other languages, thebirthdate is Semptember 22.

His official site (http://www.ronaldohome.com/) informs his birthdate as Semptember 22.

Please change the date in the English article and also the informations about Births in the pages of both days

Thanks

Many sites claimed the official site of Ronaldo, the site above is a wordpress generated fans site. Matthew_hk tc 11:56, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

The Fifa squad sheet lists his birthday as 22nd September 1976, (http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/archive/germany2006/teams/team=43924.html) the Wikipedia page on 2006 world cup Squad lists his birth date as 22nd Sept as well. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2006_FIFA_World_Cup_squads#Brazil) I am not sure the source of 18th September as this is the first I have seen it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.203.222.30 (talk) 16:05, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Misplaced edit request[edit]

An editor has placed an edit request at template:Soccerbase that I think actually pertains to this article.

Diapers During 99 America's Cup Tournament[edit]

I don't know for sure how accurate article is as Arabic is not my first language, but I thought someone who cares should take a look and add it if the content is deemed legitimate. KlappCK (talk) 14:25, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

Edit request from , 7 November 2011[edit]

The birthday of Ronaldo Luiz Nazario de Lima isn't 18.9.76 but 22.9.76.

England goal[edit]

Article has him down as scoring in le tournoi in 1997. It was Romario that scored that goal in a 1-0 win. Ronald scored during the UMBRO Cup at Wembley in 1995 - a 3-1 win for Brazil. 86.142.50.40 (talk) 19:37, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Added 22 September birthday[edit]

Since virtually every online source has Ronaldo's birth date as 22 September 1976 (including the official FIFA website), it seems absurd to ignore all of it in preference of an offline source that nobody can scrutinize for authenticity. Azzurro2882 (talk) 04:19, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Every online source is wrong. His birthday is 18 September, as his official autobiography states, and gives reason for the confusion. SpartanSWAT10 (talk) 06:50, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

Dollars?[edit]

During his spell at PSV, Ronaldo attracted the attention of both Inter Milan and FC Barcelona. It was Barcelona that was willing to pay the then record fee of $17 million

Why is this in dollars? Barcelona did not pay PSV in dollars. 92.232.213.188 (talk) 14:18, 13 October 2012 (UTC)

Legacy[edit]

There should be a section of Ronaldo's legacy just like all other great players. For example Zidane in an interview with CNN said without hesitation Ronaldo is the greatest player he has played with or against. "He does things with the ball that is sometimes irritating or even disconcerting" Zidane said. “Ronaldo used to win games by himself, whether easy or difficult. The real Ronaldo has always been a champion for me. Buffon said in an interview with GQ Magazine. “He will always be remembered among the greatest, but he could have been better than anyone, including Pele and Maradona.” Buffon said. Many future generation strikers including Messi,Ibramovic and Benzema have called Ronaldo their idol. Football coaches like Arrigo Sacchi and jose mourinho have argued Ronaldo is the greatest player they have ever seen. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jebivid (talkcontribs) 15:21, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

International goals[edit]

There are numerous problems with this section, which should be corrected as the Rec.Sport.Soccer Statistics Foundation states. I myself can't edit the page at the moment because I've just signed up. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dongtaipo (talkcontribs) 15:31, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Edit request on 3 July 2013[edit]

It's most obvious that the section International goals is based on an erroneous source. It should be corrected as stated in the Rec.Sport.Soccer Statistics Foundation. Dongtaipo (talk) 06:00, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Not done: please be more specific about what needs to be changed. If there are large-scale issues with the article that you see, I suggest you continue editing Wikipedia - once you've made at least 10 constructive edits to Wikipedia, you'll be able to edit this article yourself and address the problem(s) directly. --ElHef (Meep?) 23:16, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Edit request on 29 July 2013[edit]

Ronaldo was born on September 22nd. Not the 18th. 71.231.26.73 (talk) 18:26, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. The existing source says born on the 18th and registered on the 22nd. If you have a different source that says otherwise, please provide it. RudolfRed (talk) 00:07, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Create a new section : Charitable activities[edit]

In 2000, Ronaldo was appointed Goodwill Ambassador for the link to undp wiki page to support the organizations’ poverty eradication efforts. "In football I learned that with motivation and determination I could achieve my dreams – even if they seemed impossible at times. If the whole world unites against poverty and hunger, we can beat it and become champions," he said. Since 2003, he has been participating as UNDP Goodwill Ambassador in the Match Against Poverty, with fellow UNDP Goodwill Ambassador and soccer superstar Zinédine Zidane. The annual soccer match raises funds to benefit selected UNDP’s projects worldwide. "The fight against poverty is not a game," said Ronaldo. "We use this match as a way to raise funds and to make people aware of the fact that the solution to this problem is in our hands. It is by working together that we will all win the Match against Poverty.” As UNDP Goodwill Ambassador, Ronaldo also supported in 2012 the Rio+20 Summit in an online discussion with UNDP’s Administrator Helen Clark.

Brazilian poker players[edit]

I want to add Category: Brazilian poker players 6betbluff (talk) 09:01, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

Not done: The category "Brazilian poker players" is for "poker players from Brazil who have placed highly in major tournaments such as the World Series of Poker".
If Ronaldo has been "placed highly in major tournaments such as the World Series of Poker", please cite reliable sources to back up your request.
If he has not competed at that level, the category is inappropriate. - Arjayay (talk) 13:50, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

No references for club career stats?[edit]

I cannot spot any references for the club career stats. Is there a particular reason for them missing apart "nobody bothered"? If not, can somebody recommend a resource, which is reliable especially for Brazilian leagues? Robby.is.on (talk) 20:38, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
