Cristiano Ronaldo once again put up impressive numbers. The star scored twice in Portugal’s 3-2 win over Slovakia in a European Championship qualifier, thus playing a major role in ensuring southern Europe’s early qualification for the 2024 European Football Championship in Germany.
Ronaldo scored from a penalty kick in the 29th minute to make the score 2-0 and later scored from close range to make the score 3-1 (72).
With his 124th and 125th international goals, the attacking star also produced a ridiculous statistic that once again confirms his importance to the Portuguese national team.
73 international goals since his 30th birthday
Because: The star has already scored 73 goals for Portugal since he was 30 years old. From his 30th birthday to the present day, he has scored more goals for Portugal than record goalscorers from Germany, France, Italy, England, Spain, Netherlands, Sweden, Croatia, Denmark, Uruguay, Colombia, Chile and Mexico. The United States of America, Egypt, Ghana and 176 other countries in total.
Only top scorers from Iran (Ali Daei), Brazil (Neymar), Argentina (Lionel Messi), India (Sunil Chhetri), Malaysia (Mokhtar Dahari), Poland (Robert Lewandowski) and Iraq (Hossein Saeed Mohammad) have scored more than 73 goals.
