When Cristiano Ronaldo steps on the football field, he is always closing in on some kind of record. Recently, the Portuguese became the all-time leading goalscorer in international football as he went past Ali Daei’s long-standing record of 109 goals.
On Saturday, Ronaldo broke another record as he became the most-capped European in men’s international football history overtaking his former Real Madrid teammate Sergio Ramos.
The Manchester United forward started and scored for Portugal in their 3-0 win over Qatar marking his record-breaking 181st appearance for Portugal in style.
