Cristiano Ronaldo boasts after breaking men’s international scoring record

Cristiano Ronaldo Portugal

Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo, on Wednesday night scored his 110th international goal.

In doing so, he overtook Iran’s Ali Daei as the top men’s career international goal scorer.

Ronaldo‘s record mark arrived in the 89th minute of their World Cup qualifier against the Republic of Ireland.

Goncalo Guedes swung in a cross from the right wing, with Ronaldo rising to meet the service and head home the record-breaking equaliser.

He added his 111th international goal in the sixth minute of stoppage time, leading his side to a 2-1 comeback win.

“This record is mine and it is unique,” Ronaldo said after the match.

“I’m extremely happy and it’s another one for my career. It’s about motivation and the desire I have to continue playing football, also from this last contract I made, in which I was happy to return home. If we get up every day with the ambition to motivate and do better, to make the fans and our children happy, that is essential.

“It’s another record for the museum.”

Ronaldo drew level with Daei’s mark of 109 earlier this year at Euro 2020 with a two-goal performance in group-stage action against France. Both those goals in the 2-2 draw in Budapest came from the penalty spot.

The career international scoring record is held by Canada’s Christine Sinclair, who has 186 goals.
