Cristiano Ronaldo equals all-time international goal scoring record

Cristiano Ronaldo has equalled the all-time international goal scoring record, netting a brace in Portugal’s 2-2 draw against France on Wednesday night (June 23) to match the record of 109 international goals scored by Iran’s Ali Daei.

The 36-year-old is also the Euro 2020’s top scorer with five goals in three games. He has now scored 14 European championship goals, five more than France’s Michel Platini.

Ronaldo has also become the all-time top scorer in the World Cup and European Championship combined (21), breaking the record previously set by Germany’s Miroslav Klose (19).

The Portuguese star can continue to make history as Portugal qualified for the Euro’s last-16, finishing third in Group F with 4 points, the same as Germany and one less than France.
Portugal will now face Belgium on Sunday at 8pm (click here).
