FOOTBALL WORLD REACTS TO RONALDO BECAME THE ALL TIME TOP SCORER IN MEN S INTERNATIONAL FOOTBALL
Cristiano Ronaldo has become the all-time top international goalscorer after netting a sensational brace against the Republic of Ireland. Portugal scored twice in the last seven minutes against their European opponents at the Estádio Algarve in a World Cup qualifier.
Ronaldo grabbed them both, including the winner in the fifth minute of stoppage time. He had scored with two minutes to draw the game level, his 110th goal on the international stage, and then grabbed his 111th shortly after.
The forward spurned an early opportunity from the spot as Gavin Bazunu guessed right to keep the game goalless. However he made up for it later in the contest with an incredible late show and his goals takes him clear of Iran's Ali Daei, who scored 109 times in 149 games.
Ronaldo equalled Daei's total with a brace against France at Euro 2020 earlier this summer.
