Another record has been surpassed by Cristiano Ronaldo, he broke Ali Daei’s international goalscoring record.
It happened when he struck in the 89th minute against Republic of Ireland before then adding a second in heroic fashion to secure a 2-1 win.
He had missed a penalty earlier in the game, with Bazunu diving well to his right to palm the ball wide of the post.
The goal caps off what’s been a dream week for CR7 in which he also finalised his fairytale return to former club Manchester United
The Portuguese phenomenon has made it his business to chase down the Iranian’s record
And he will now look to kick-on in an attempt to build an insurmountable total before he hangs up his boots in a bid to preserve his record.
The 36-year-old had equalled Daei’s astonishing international goalscoring record during Euro 2020,
Of course converting a brace of penalties in his nation’s draw with France in the group stages of the tournament.
The international goalscoring record is one of the many the Ronaldo has broken throughout his career.
Ronaldo also boasts the record for most goals in footballing history, tbe most goals scored for Real Madrid, UEFA Champions League, and in European Championships.
