Cristiano Ronaldo has made history again. The Portuguese bagged a brace in Portugal’s 2-2 draw against France on Wednesday night to draw level with Ali Daei as international football’s all-time record goalscorer.
The Juventus forward has scored 109 international goals in 178 appearances for his country, making him Portugal’s record goalscorer. As well as that, he has scored 14 European Championship goals – more than anyone else – and has the record for Champions League goals with 134 and Real Madrid goals on 451.
Sweden and Lithuania have been his favourite opponents, scoring seven against each of them.
In European Championships and World Cups combined, Cristiano has 20 goals. Again, that’s more than anybody else.
Lionel Messi is some way behind on 73 Argentina goals.
