Cristiano Ronaldo netted two goals on Tuesday to help Portugal defeat Sweden in Nations League, and also reaching another landmark.
The Juventus star became the first European to score 100 international goals in men’s football with a brilliant free-kick to open the scoring.
He curled the stunning kick into the top corner from 25 yards to reach the milestone.
The goal gave Portugal a 1-0 Nations League lead in Solna at half-time, before he scored yet another to seal a 2-0 victory for his country.
Ronaldo is now within nine goals of the world-record 109 that Iran’s Ali Daei managed during his playing career.
