Cristiano Ronaldo has set a new International Football new world record.
Ronaldo scored twice for Portugal against the Republic of Ireland last Wednesday to break the record for goals scored in men’s international football.
His 111 goals are now two ahead of the previous record-holder Ali Daei, who scored 109 goals for Iran between 1993 and 2006.
However, the records didn’t stop there. Ronaldo also equaled Sergio Ramos’ European record for men’s caps – with his 180th Portugal appearance.
Ronaldo has a long way to go when it comes to the numbers achieved in the women’s game.
Christine Sinclair has the highest goal-scoring record of all time, for both women’s and men’s international football, having scored 186 times for Canada.
