Cristiano Ronaldo: In men’s international football the Portuguese captain has set a new record for the most goals.

Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo has set a new record for most goals in men’s international football. The Portugal captain set the record by scoring the 110th and 111th goals of his international career against Ireland in the World Cup qualifiers.

 

Earlier, Ali Dai of Iran held the record for most goals in international football. Ali Dai scored 109 goals in his international career from 1993 to 2006.

Ronaldo broke Ali Dai’s record in the match against France in Euro 2020.

 

The 36-year-old Ronaldo also holds the European record for most international matches with a goal record. Sergio Ramos of Spain, who joined Manchester United a few days ago, broke the record of men’s football in the 160th international match.

 

The record for most international matches is held by Soh Chin An of Malaysia, who played 195 matches from 1989 to 1984.

With the exception of Cristiano Ronaldo, who joined Manchester United from Juventus last week, and Ali Dai of Iran, no footballer has scored more than 90 international goals in men’s football.

In an interview with RTE, Ronaldo said: “I’m very happy. Not just because we broke the record, but because of the special moment that the whole team got together.

 

As well as international football, Ronaldo is the highest goal scorer in the history of European Cup / Champions League, the top tournament in club football.
