Cristiano Ronaldo Becomes The First Player To Score Against 40 Different Countries

Cristiano Ronaldo Becomes The First Player To Score Against 40 Different Countries

Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo has become the first European player to score 90 international goals.

The 34-year-old netted four times in Portugal's European Championship qualifier against Lithuania on Tuesday night, which means it has taken him a total of 160 games to claim the record.

In fact, Ronaldo's brace in the Group B tie means that the five-time Ballon d'Or winner has scored against 40 different nations.

He is the only person to achieve such a remarkable feat.

The Juventus forward has scored eight hat-tricks for his country over the years, which includes tonight's magnificent display against a helpless Lithuania.

He opened the scoring in the seventh minute with a typical finish from the penalty spot, and then scored three goals in the space of 15 minutes to make it 4-1.

Ronaldo's fourth was by far the most entertaining of the game. Mostly because of the goalkeeper's horrific error.

Here are all four of his goals against the European minnows.




Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored 92 international goals after his latest display. Is he the greatest player of all time?
