Cristiano Ronaldo has surpassed Pele as the all-time leading goal scorer in men’s international football. Portugal defeated Ireland 2-1, and Cristiano Ronaldo broke Ali Dasi’s 110-goal record.
Adding another feather to his cap, he produced a fantastic goal to help Portugal win the 2022 World Cup against the Republic of Ireland.
Cristiano Ronaldo, a Portuguese footballer who plays for Manchester United in the Premier League and captains the Portugal national team, was born on February 5, 1985. Ronaldo has won the Balcon d’Or five times and the European Golden Shoes four times. In his career, he has won 32 trophies, including seven league championships, five UEFA Champions Leagues, one UEFA European Championship, and one UEFA Nations League.
In 24 countries, he has netted an international goal. Cristiano Ronaldo has 50 goals in Portugal to date.
“I am really thrilled, not only because I broke the record, but also because of the amazing moments that we had,” Ronaldo said. “To score two goals at the end of the game is so difficult, but I have to respect what the team did because we believed until the very end.”
Ronaldo scored the winner in injury time to ensure Portugal took all three points at home after shattering Irish hearts with a record-breaking 89th-minute equalizer. Ronaldo’s first goal for the UEFA Euro 2016 champions helped him exceed Iranian Ali Daei’s remarkable 109-goal record in men’s international football.
Almost all of Ronaldo’s goals have come in the second half of the season.
