Cristiano Ronaldo breaks record for most goals scored in international matches
After Manchester City loanee Gavin Bazunu saved Cristiano Ronaldo first-half penalty to stop Manchester United from making the 110th international goal record for Portugal, the headlines wrote themselves.
Ireland seemed to be holding on for a famous World Cup qualifying victory in Portugal, but, as he so often does, Ronaldo had the last word with 2 late goals to break Irish hearts and the world record.
Ronaldo said, “I’m so happy, not only for the record but for the special moments with two goals at the end,”
“It was so tough, but we have to appreciate what the team did, they and the fans believed until the end of the game.”
This night was frustrating for Ronaldo and his compatriots as Ireland defended resolutely after taking the lead and largely restricted the hosts to pot-shots from distance.
In the 89th minute, Cristiano Ronaldo lined up a free kick on the edge of the box but Bazunu again repelled his effort.
In the past Iranian Ali Daei’s total of 109 international goals, he repeated the feat in the 96th minute with another header to move on to 111.
