Cristiano Ronaldo has at long last equalled the world record for international goals, after his incredible two goals against France on Matchday 3 of UEFA EURO 2020.
This has taken his international total for Portugal to 109, coordinating with the world-record mark set by former Iran forward Ali Daei.
The 36-year-old Ronaldo, as of now Europe’s top-scoring international footballer, has been chasing down Daei’s total at UEFA EURO 2020, scoring twice in the Matchday 1 win against Hungary before his goal in the loss in Germany in the second round of matches.
Two penalties against France at the Puskás Aréna pulled him level with Daei, the solitary other men’s player to score a hundred years of international goals.
