And Ronaldo, who won the Nations League with his side last summer, capped off his performance by adding a superb second from outside of the box.

ESPN has created an infographic to show the 42 countries that the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star scored against en route to 100 international goals.

Ronaldo has scored the most times against Lithuania and Sweden at seven apiece (adding the extra one on for Sweden, which the infographic didn't count at the time).

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has scored five goals against the likes of Luxembourg, Andorra, Latvia and Armenia.

However, fans have already slammed Ronaldo for not scoring against bigger nations like Brazil and the Netherlands.

According to BBC Sport, Opta found that Ronaldo has scored over 30 of his international goals in Euro qualifiers and 30 in World Cup qualifiers.

And the Juventus forward has scored over five goals at both Euro and World Cup competitions.

Ronaldo currently sits on 101 goals and is eight behind former Iran captain Ali Daei, who is the only person to score more goals than the Portuguese superstar at international level.

Behind the Juventus superstar is India captain Sunil Chhetri on 72 and Argentina captain Lionel Messi on 70.

Portugal's 2-0 victory over Sweden puts them top of Group C after their opening two matches in the Nations League.

France, who are level on points with Portugal, are second and Sweden and Croatia are third and fourth respectively.
