Manchester United has recently bought Cristiano Ronaldo and people are questioning his abilities, which he smashed by scoring 2 against the Republic of Ireland.
Cristiano Ronaldo: The Highest Scorer In International Football
Ronaldo can create footballing drama like no other and this will easily be one of his best nights in Faro. Everything was going against him and his team till the 89th minute.
The game had ended with Portugal gaining a win over Ireland and Ronaldo claimed the seat of scoring the highest number of international goals. He was tied with Ali Daei at 109 but scored 2 to beat the previous record and reach 111.
Cristiano was extremely happy after the game and stated that he just wanted a goal but had scored two. He feels that his record is quite unique and displays his motivation and desire that he had chosen to play football at the highest level possible.
Ronaldo is currently on 111 goals for his country, Portugal, after scoring his 110th with a stunning header from a Goncalo Guedes cross. The forward completed his return to United on Monday. He scored the first goal with another header from close quarters in the 6th minute of stoppage time with a cross from Joao Mario.
After scoring the record-smashing goal, he raced away in celebration and ripped off his jersey in the process. Referee Matej Jug booked him for the offense and he is suspended for Tuesday’s qualifier against Azerbaijan. He will be able to report earlier for duty at Old Trafford after signing for the club.
The Portuguese forward created a drama when he missed the spot-kick. Goalie Gavin Bazunu dived right and denied the goal. This miss did not cost Portugal the match but had delayed Ronaldo’s celebrations. He has missed 7 penalties in 21, in his Portugal career.
