πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Ή Ronaldo breaks silence on breaking international record

Cristiano Ronaldo has become the greatest goal-scorer in international football history after hitting a brace for Portugal against Ireland on Wednesday night.

Ireland seemingly had the match result in the bag with a 1-0 lead as late as the final minute, when Ronaldo delivered a quick brace on 89 and 90+6 minutes. 

The two goals also placed Ronaldo at the highest individual position of 101 goals in international football, a feat that has ever been achieved by any other footballer before. 

"I’m very happy, not only because I’ve beaten the record but for the special moments that we have, two goals at the end of the game," Ronaldo told RTE's Tony O'Donoghue after the match.

"So tough, but I have to appreciate what the team did. We believed until the end and for the supporters, I’m so glad," the 36-year-old concluded.

Meanwhile, Portugal's next qualifier is against Azerbaijan, but before that is an international friendly against Qatar.
