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 never been achieved by any other footballer before.

Are you kidding me!#Ronaldo scores the tying goal in the 89th minute to break the all-time record then scores the winner in the 6th minute of extra time.#Portugal 2 #Ireland 1— Paul Almeida (@AzorcanGlobal) September 1, 2021

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