Star striker Cristiano Ronaldo broke another record and is now the most dangerous national footballer in history. The Portuguese scored two goals in the World Cup qualifiers with a 2-1 (0-1) victory over Ireland in the final stages. Ronaldo, who recently moved from Juventus to Manchester United, left Iranian Ali Daei (109 goals / 149 games) trailing with 111 international goals.
Ronaldo has played 180 matches with the Portugal national team so far. “I am very happy. Not only because I broke the record, but because of the special moment we had,” Ronaldo told Irish television station RTE. Two goals at the end of the match are very special. In the 89th and 96th minutes in Faro, the 36-year-old turned the tables after trailing 0-1 and put Selecao on his way to the World Cup. Before changing the team, Ronaldo failed a penalty kick when the score was 0-0.
After his second goal, CR7 took off his shirt and celebrated wildly. He accepted the yellow card that was traded in exchange for her with a smile. Congratulations to FIFA. FIFA President Gianni Infantino said: “In addition to being a national hero, you have become an international icon and a role model for players around the world. Your skills and your constant quest for improvement deserve worldwide recognition and admiration. Paraben, Cristiano!”
A more successful footballer than Ronaldo. Canadian Kristen Sinclair who is still active (38) has 187 goals in 304 international matches. Brand out of reach of Ronaldo.
