BREAKING: Cristiano Ronaldo becomes all-time international top goalscorer, Tops Ali Daei Of Iran

on

Cristiano Ronaldo has beaten Ali Daei of Iran to become the all-time top international goalscorer.

Ronaldo netted an incredible brace against the Republic of Ireland in the dying hours of ninety minutes on the 89th and the winner in the fifth minute of stoppage time (96th) during their 2022 world cup qualifier at the Estádio Algarve, Portugal.

Ronaldo now has 111 goals from 180 caps to topple Daei’s goals of 109 from 149 international games.

The Portuguese star missed a penalty earlier on the 15th minute into the game but did the rescue for the Portugal team sensationally.

Cristiano equalled Daei’s total with a brace against France at Euro 2020 earlier in the summer.

Ronaldo said after the game “I’m so happy, not just because I beat the record, but for the special moment that we had., I have to appreciate what the team did, we believed until the end. I’m so glad.”

About his future and return to Manchester United Ronaldo said “I’m very happy, I have a few more years of my career and I still want to shine and play in the best football league in the world, the Premier League. I dedicate it to the whole team, to all Portuguese people and to the family.”

The Mirror UK reports that Daei has previously hailed Ronaldo and his achievements as he prepares to see his record broken.

“I’ve been always proud of [ Cristiano Ronaldo ]. He is one of the top three football players in the world and amongst those who will not be forgotten,” he told Euronews.

“Ronaldo has proved during years that with perseverance, hard work and professionalism one can achieve many goals.”

Ronaldo is a legend in his home country as well as clubs like Real Madrid and Manchester for record goals.
