Ronaldo scored 100th international goal, reached near this record

new Delhi. Veteran football star Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the few players who lands on record if he lands. The same happened in Portugal’s match against Sweden on Tuesday night. Ronaldo, playing for Portugal in the Group A match of the Nations League, scored a beautiful goal on the free kick and got his name written among the few footballers who have 100 international goals in their name. He has become only the second footballer in the world to score 100 goals for his country’s team.

Returned to the field after battling thumb infection
Before this match, Ronaldo was struggling with an infection caused by a toe wound. This wound was caused by biting him in the bee’s thumb. Due to this, they could not play in the match against Croatia on Saturday. This was Ronaldo’s first match after recovering from this wound, due to which all eyes were on him. Ronaldo, who won the 2016 Euro Cup under his captaincy to Portugal, did not disappoint his fans and converted the chance of a free kick from outside the D into a beautifully straight goal. Ronaldo then added another goal in the 73rd minute of the match, taking his total goal to 101 and his two goals helped Portugal win the match 2–0.

Ali’s world record is now target for Iran
Ronaldo’s next target is now the world record of Ali Daei of Iran, who was the only footballer in the world to score 100+ goals for his national team before Ronaldo’s match. Dai holds the record for scoring 109 international goals for Iran. Ronaldo, who has been 35 years old, now has 101 goals in the account and he is just 8 goals away from the midwife’s record. He said after the match, I am happy with the win and want to stay on this path continuously. Scoring 100 and then 101st, scoring two goals made me very happy. Now God will decide. I feel great and am very happy to play with these young players.
