Ronaldo Passes 100 goals for Portugal

Cristiano Ronaldo reached yet another milestone on Tuesday when he became the first Eiropean male player to reach 100 international goals.

Against Sweden, the Portugal captain curled a stunning free-kick into the top corner – the 57th of his career – to reach the fete before netting his 101st goal with an even better strike in the second half as the holders maintained perfect start to the defense of Nations League.

Ronaldo, who played 81 minutes, is within eight goals of the world record.

Iran’s Ali Daei – the only man to score more international goals than Ronaldo – hit 109 during his playing career from 1993 to 2006.

The next top scoring current players are India’s Sunil Chhetri (72) and Argentina’s Lionel Messi (70).
