Cristiano Ronaldo’s 110th and 111th scores shatter the men’s international scoring record

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 110th and 111th goals for Portugal in their dramatic 2-1 World Cup qualifying win over the Republic of Ireland, breaking the world record for goals scored in men’s international football.

 

After having a penalty saved by Gavin Bazunu, the 36-year-old scored two late headers to break and extend the record.

Ali Daei, who scored 109 goals for Iran between 1993 and 2006, was the previous record-holder, which Ronaldo matched with a double against France at Euro 2020.

With his 180th appearance for Portugal, the Manchester United attacker has equaled Sergio Ramos’ European record for men’s caps.
