Cristiano Ronaldo Draws Level With Iran's Ali Daei As The All-Time Top Scorer in Men's Football

has reached yet another milestone in his career as he equalled Ali Daei’s record to became the top international goals scorer in men’s football in ’s match with world champions France.

The Juventus forward was stretchered off the pitch in the Euro 2016 final against the same opposition as Portugal won their first ever international trophy. 

 

 

But this time around the former Real Madrid player has starred for his national team – scoring in every group stage match in .

 

 

RONALDO BECOMES THE TOP SCORER IN INTERNATIONAL MEN’S FOOTBALL

His first goal of the game came in the 30th minute from 12 yards as he gave Portugal the lead in Hungary and half an hour later in the game he scored Portugal’s second to draw level with the legendary Iranian player’s record.

 

 

And one statistic that might baffle fans and pundits alike is that only 19 of his 109 goals for Portugal have come in friendly matches. He has scored 31 goals each in World Cup and European Championship qualifiers.

 

NEXT TARGET – TOP SCORER IN BOTH MEN’S AND WOMEN’S FOOTBALL

He has scored 14 goals so far at the European Championships, 7 in World Cups, 5 in the UEFA Nations League and 2 in the now-extinct FIFA Confederations Cup.

This summer he broke another record as he became the top scorer in the European Championships, overtaking French great Michel Platini in the process. He also became the only player to score at five European Championships earlier this month.

 

 

And now he has become the record goalscorer in men’s football as the list of records held by him keeps on growing by the day.

He still has a long way to go if he harbours aspirations to break the all-time record in both men’s and women’s football. Canada’s Christine Sinclair ranks first in that regard.

But with his relentless energy and drive, one might wonder whether he will be able to add another feather to his cap before he calls it a day in football.
