Cristiano Ronaldo is closing on Iran Ali Daei’s international goals record of 109 after the Juventus attacker scored a brace in the 2-0 win over Sweden in the UEFA Nations League on Tuesday evening.
Ronaldo scored his 100th and 101st international goal for Portugal in Stockholm, the goals were scored in his typical trademark with the first from a free-kick and the second a perfectly executed strike from the edge of the box.
The former Real Madrid star scored 55 goals with his right foot (of which 11 are penalties and 10 are freekicks), 24 with his head and 22 with his left foot.
The Portuguese attacker is the second player to reach a century goal after Daei who scored 109 in total.
Ronaldo has laid 40 assists and helped his country to European Championship and Nations League glory.
