Cristiano Ronaldo Scores 100th International Goal For Portugal

Cristiano Ronaldo became just the second player in history to reach 100 international goals, when he scored against Sweden in the Nations League on Tuesday night.

The Juventus forward did it in typical fashion with a brilliant free-kick into the top corner, to give the goalkeeper no chance of stopping his century.

Cristiano Ronaldo Was Kept Quiet By Lucas Hernandez's Brilliant Performance

In a career of incredible achievements and records it might be one of the most impressive from the 35-year-old and he's now just nine away from the all time record, held by Iran legend Ali Daei.

The next closest player behind him is Malaysia's Mokhtar Dahari, who played from 1972-1986, with 85 goals, whilst India's Sunil Chhetri is the closest active player to Ronaldo. The 36-year-old has 72 international goals, two ahead of Lionel Messi.

Cristiano Ronaldo's 101st International Goal Is Even Better Than His 100th

published at2 months ago

Ronaldo scored his first international goal in the 2004 Euros opener against Greece, scoring a consolation goal in injury time as the hosts lost 2-1.

He would score again in the semi-final against Netherlands but was powerless to stop Greece winning against them again in the final.

The former Manchester United winger became his country's all time top scorer against Cameroon in a friendly in 2014, after a hat-trick in the World Cup qualifier a few months before had put him level with Pauleta on 47.

His three goals at the 2016 Euros earned him the silver boot and helped Portugal win the tournament, though his contribution in the final was as cheerleader and coach, after he went off injured early against France.

A hat-trick in Portugal's opening game of the 2018 World Cup, in a thrilling 3-3 draw with Spain, put him level with Ferenc Puskas as Europe's all time top scorer before the winner against Morocco in the next game gave him the record on his own.

Now he's reached the triple figure mark it's a matter of when and not if he beats Daei.
