Ronaldo is the Second Player to score 100 or more goals in football
He is not a cricketer. Even then, the Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo scored a great century. Ronaldo is the second player in history to score 100 or more goals in international football. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has made a name for himself in the UEFA Nations League against Sweden.
Ronaldo’s century might have been in the previous match against Croatia. But the bee sting did not allow him to enter the field. Sitting in the gallery, he bit his nails that day. The wait was unbearable. Ronaldo scored a pair of goals in his second match against Sweden. The 35-year-old Juventus star scored a century in the last goal of the first half.
Fans were waiting for this record after his 99 goals. Ronaldo could have set this record on September 6. But he did not play in the UEFA Nations League against Croatia that day. However, Portuguese superstar CR7 did not miss this opportunity against Sweden on Tuesday (September 6). The Portugal captain completed the milestone by scoring a goal against Sweden.
Ali Daiyi of Iran became the first footballer in history to score a century of 109 goals. As such, Ronaldo’s position is second, but his position among Europeans is first.
In the 44th minute of the match, Sweden’s Gustav Svensen got the second yellow card for fouling Zhao Moutinho. And that’s why Portugal got a free kick 25 yards away from the D-box. Ronaldo snatched the goal by fooling the Swedish goalkeeper with that free-kick. Ronaldo completed his 100th goal with a beautiful free-kick.
Fans are now waiting for Ronaldo’s 10 more goals. If Ronaldo can score 10 in this UEFA Nations League, he will also hold the record for the highest goal scorer in the history of international matches alone.
