Cristiano Ronaldo becomes joint top scorer in international football

Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo, has become the joint-top scoring male player in international football.

Ronaldo netted twice from the spot against France in their last Euro 2020 group game on Wednesday.

That takes him up to 109 goals in 176 matches for his country.

The 36-year-old is currently tied with Iran legend Ali Daei, who scored 109 times in 149 matches between 1993 and 2006.

The pair are far ahead of any other player on the list, as Malaysia hero Mokhtar Dahari, who retired in 1985, is the third top scorer on 89 goals and Hungary icon Ferenc Puskas finished his career in 1956 with 84.
